THE Holy Child Mintal and Catalunan Grande captured two titles apiece at the start of the Mayor Inday Sara and Vice Mayor Rody Duterte 25th Kadayawan Sportsfest Football Festival held in Mintal over the weekend.
Holy Child Mintal topped the nine to 10 years old category over Los Amigos and Catalunan Grande B, which settled for second and third place, respectively.
Holy Child also bested Montserrat Camp School of Davao and University of the Philippines (UP) Tigers to rule the 13 to 16 years event of the tournament presented by the City Government of Davao through the Sports Development Division of the City Mayor's Office (SDD-CMO).
Catalunan Grande trampled rivals Mintal and Abba's Child Science School Foundation to pocket the 11-12 title. Mintal and Abba's finished second and third, respectively.
In the girls elementary division, Catalunan Grande overcame Holy Child and Los Amigos Elementary School for the top post.
Montserrat, however, did not go home empty-handed as it bagged the six to eight years old crown of the meet organized by the CWTS class of UP Mindanao in partnership with Barangay Mintal and the Davao Football Association (DFA).
A total of 32 teams competed in five categories.
Mintal barangay captain Ramon Bargamento II led the opening rites. Also in attendance were barangay councilor Benedict Adan, purok leader Rizalino Sobrapena and DFA president Rafael Vilela.
