Azkals start training in Japan

The national men’s football team, the Azkals, left for Japan last night for the last leg of their training before they head for Mongolia for their second game in the AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers scheduled on March 15 at Ulan Bator.

Negrense Eduard Sacapano, tapped to be the team’s goalkeeper in the absence of Neil Etheridge, who will not be able to suit up for the team, said the team is doing well and they are ready for the game.

The below zero temperature, however, will be their biggest problem, Sacapano said, and he hopes that the training in Japan will help them adjust to the weather in Mongolia.

NOPSSCEA marks
founding day

The Negros Occidental Private Schools Sports Cultural Educational Association celebrates its Foundation Day today at the Nature’s Village in Talisay City.

Association president Dr. Rosario de Guzman said the culminating event of the NOPSSCEA’s 30th year will be highlighted by a concelebrated mass at the Nature’s chapel with immediate past president, Monsignor Noly Que as main celebrant.

Que will be joined by 10 other priests coming from NOPSSCEA member-schools to mark the occasion anchored on the theme, “NOPSSCEA: Sturdy @ 30”, De Guzman said.

Sharp, Candles/Alimon
 win Open Trio bowl title

Sharp dumped ESD Hurricane in the finals to win the Class A crown, as Candles/Alimon Steel and Davies Fusion led in their divisions of the Top’s Invitational Open Trio Bowling Championship at the New Tops Millennium Plaza Alley in Bacolod City.

The Sharp bowlers of Irne Diaz composed of Edgar De Leon, Matt Gaudite, Ricky Ondovilla and Ricky Zamora overpowered top qualifier and twice-to-beat ESD Hurricane/ASSFBI represented by Wilson Casas, Cesar Sumaylo, Nonoy Ayagan and Nerio Regollo.

In the championship round, Sharp prevailed, 356-314, in their first game and followed it up with a 349-318 victory in the final round to bag the top prize.
