Ceres FC and Dynamic Builders kept their top form and registered separate lopsided wins in the Negros Football League last quarter conference at the Ayala North football field, Sunday.
Taking full control of the first match, Ceres beat Las Buenas FC, 8-0, while Dynamic Builders routed Silver Dragon FC, 11-0, in the second match.
With his speed and quick reflexes, Janrick Soriano opened the scoring for Ceres a few seconds after the opening whistle for his first goal. Seconds later teammate Arvin Villaruel took advantage of the momentary lapse on LBFC’s defense to score Ceres’ second goal.
With two goals on their credit, Ceres cut Las Buenas some slack in the next 21 minutes until Joshua Fegidero found the chance to register his name under the goal scorers’ column.
Compounding LBFC’s woes was the 38th minute own goal initiated by Roem Guanzon.
As LBFC had some difficulty in bringing the ball to the other side, Villaruel struck yet again with another goal in the 40th minute to give Ceres a commanding 5-0 halftime advantage.
The second half was pure routine for Ceres with team manager Leo Rey Yanson joining his guys inside the pitch and scoring his team’s 7th goal in the 60th minute, eight minutes after Soriano netted his second goal.
Lemuel Unabia completed the demolition of LBFC as he booted in Ceres’ eight and last goal in the 74th minute.
It was the same scenario in the second match as Dynamic Builders showed no mercy in shutting out Silver Dragon with 11 goals.
Jaime Poderoso scored four goals (12th, 14th, 55th, and 65th) to establish total dominance for Dynamic, while Jayshon Panhay delivered three markers (9th, 15th, and 56th), and two goals from Ian Treyes (8th and 45th).
Cholo Gonzales and Mark Arandilla scored one goal each.
Sunday’s third match was close with Trimaxi getting away with a 3-2 win against Jakalz.
Trimaxi’s Eliseo Palomo Jr. opened the scoring in the 13th minute but Jakalz managed to equalize 25 minutes later courtesy of Michael Binabo as the score was tied, 1-all at halftime.
Palomo made his move once again in the 58th minute for Trimaxi’s second goal but Jakalz stayed close and Binabo also scored his second marker in the 64th minute for a 2-all deadlock.
Ryan Hermida broke the tie and sealed the win for Trimaxi as his attempt found the back of the net in the 75th minute.
The tournament, bankrolled by the Ceres Group of Companies, is part of the year-round football program initiated by brothers Leo Rey and Ricky Yanson to sustain public interest in the sport and keep local football talents in top form.*NAB
