Visayas eyes elementary football title

JEREMIAH Fernandez helped Visayas stay undefeated in elementary football in the Milo Olympics national finals at the Cebu City Sports Center yesterday.
Visayas, represented by the Sacred Heart School-Jesuit, defeated NCR, 3-0, and Mindanao, 3-2.
After a scoreless first half Visayas silenced the jeering NCR camp with two goals in the first six minutes of the second.
Mark Veloso sped past the defense in a breakaway before Fernandez showed his deft touch for a 2-0 count in the 32nd , controlling a cross with his right foot before blasting it with his left.
Oliver Booth got into the scoring act with a similar move, shooting just outside the penalty box a minute from time.
Fernandez again saved Visayas in the second game, spoiling a 2-2 draw with a last gasp goal for their 3-2 win.
Today Visayas, which has six points, will gun for the title against Luzon, which won against Mindanao, 2-0.
