Zafa bested other powerhouse teams

Saturday, June 8, 2013
THE Zamboanga Football Association (Zafa) has bested the other powerhouse football teams from the country’s top universities in the Chris Monfort Memorial Cup, which was recently held in Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU).
The Zamboanga football delegation, aside from the national title, also emerged as the third place winner in the Dipolog Centennial Football Festival under the women’s category and also third place winner in the Master’s category.
Mayor Celso Lobregat has expressed elation over Zafa’s overpowering performance in the Chris Monfort Memorial Cup and good showing in the regional competition, stressing that the Zamboanga football delegation once again puts this city in the map of sports.
Zafa Secretary-General Dr. Justin Paber, accompanied by former Zafa president and now City Assessor Erwin Bernardo, spearheaded Friday the delegation in a courtesy call on Lobregat at City Hall.
They presented to Lobregat the trophies and medals they hauled during the competitions.
Paber hopes that local football enthusiasts would further hone their talents and become a part of the Philippine national team in the future.
