AFTER winning the grand slam title in the recent Philippine Football League, the Ceres-Negros FC on Saturday, November 16, captured the Copa Paulino Alcantara crown by defeating Kaya-Iloilo FC, 2-1 at Biñan Football Stadium.

Playing undermanned with only 14 players, the Busmen overcame their Visayan rival.

Tristan Robles and Robert Lopez Mendy scored in each half for the Busmen as Kenshiro Daniels delivered for Kaya.

The Busmen missed head coach Risto Vidakovic, Stephan Schrock, and Carlie de Murga -- who was unable to make it due to a national team duty.

Meanwhile, top scorer Bienve Marañon and Super Herrera were also given a break.

Ceres FC finished the tournament undefeated.
