Ceres ready for final battle
as Davao intensifies lineup

Sweeping the qualifying round and getting past Iloilo in the semifinals with a 2-0 win yesterday, NOFA Ceres-La Salle is on the brink of clinching the 2013 PFF Suzuki Men’s National U23 title in Dumaguete City.

Standing on its path is Davao FA, who brought in a couple of reinforcements from Manila for tomorrow’s championship match at the Gov. Mariano Perdices Stadium. Davao advanced to the final round by beating North Cotabato, 1-0, in the semis.

“We came prepared for this tournament and we are ready for Davao. We played against them in our bracket and we are familiar with their system,” Ceres coach Ali Go said.

Maniville dethrones Housing
in Handumanan SK cagefest

A buzzer-beater by Rocky Jonas dethroned defending champion NGO/HOUSING in the 40 Up division as Maniville/Axial Engineering came from behind with a 93-91 shocker in Barangay Handumanan SK/Inter Phase/Barkada basketball league finals, a press release from organizers said.

With 10 seconds left, Boboy Antones heaved from baseline to Wendell Fuentebella at midcourt who quickly passed to Jonas for the winning basket.

The team celebrated its victory with manager Lilia Sinugbuhan, while Housing has the backing of Aurelita Iran. Zone 5 of Isaias Relota Jr. settled for third place.
