Green Archers Chieffy Caligdong meets former team Air Force for first time

Star winger Chieffy Caligdong faces his former team for the first time as Green Archers United Globe and Philippine Air Force aim to earn their first victory in their clash in the United Football League action Thursday at the Emperador Stadium in Mckinley Hill in Taguig.
Caligdong, who transferred to Green Archers early this year, meets Air Force, where he played for almost a decade, at 5:15 p.m.
Despite Caligdong’s move to his new team, Green Archers are yet to secure a victory after dropping its first three matches of the season.
Air Force also started its League campaign on a bad note, losing its first two matches to join Green Archers, Pasargad FC and Philippine Army as the only squads without a win at this stage of the competition.
Aside from Caligdong, striker Tating Pasilan, midfielder Arnie Pasinabo and goalkeeper Patrick Deyto are also expected to boost the Green Archers.
Veteran striker Ian Araneta, meanwhile, will lead Air Force in its search for its first victory of the season.
In the nightcap, the Loyola Meralco Sparks aim to continue its winning ways as it tangles with the struggling Pasargad at 7:30 p.m.
The Sparks look to nail their fourth straight victory to grab a share of the lead in the League table. Pasargad, meanwhile, looks to finally score their first triumph of the season after suffering three straight defeats at the start of its campaign.
AKTV will begin the live coverage at 5 p.m.

Reid back on the bench as Global faces Army

Global welcomes coach Brian Reid back on the sidelines as it battles Army at the Emperador Stadium on Tuesday.
Reid was out of the country last week and missed the last two matches of the reigning United Football League champions, who currently share top spot in the table with Stallion and Loyola Meralco.
In his absence, manager Dan Palami called the shots and got a terrific response from the side, producing its finest game yet in the 5-1 win over Green Archers Globe.
“I’m pleased to be back and that we had managed two victories (while I was away),” said Reid.
Izzo El-Habbib hopes to continue his fine form, after a brace against Green Archers.
Carli de Murga, Misagh Bahadoran and Jeff Christiaens are also in line for another start, after combining well on the left side in last week’s win, where Patrick Reichelt also scored his first goal of the season.
Val Kama, who picked up a knock and did not play in the second half against Archers, hopes to be ready for selection, even as Ben Starosta tries to continue his solid play at midfield alongside Yu Hoshide.
Reid hopes the improvement will continue against an Army side still looking for its first win of the season.
“I've been only here for five weeks, and there's still much to be done,” said Reid. I see improvement in the right direction. I always thought we can always get better, and we'll still work hard to do that.”
Army is just one of two teams that beat Global last season. Global absorbed a stunning 1-2 loss at Nomads field in their season-opener against Army last season, but ended the season unbeaten in their last 14 matches to capture their first league title.
“I look forward to the challenge and the improvement,” Reid said. “The players are certainly determined and up to the challenge.”

It’s all systems go for teams seeing action in the Philippine Football Federation-Suzuki Cup Visayas Regional Qualifying Round set to kick off on April 15-20, in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental.
Football contingents include host Negros Occidental Football Association (NOFA), Iloilo Football Association (IFA), and Cebu Football Association (CFA).

According to Dofitas, the decision of hosting the tournament in San Carlos is to provide a venue which is closer to the competing teams, yet can provide a good crowd.
“We don’t underestimate other areas, but we would like also to come up with the community involvement as requested by our major sponsor – the Suzuki. And, San Carlos is an ideal place for competition at the regular level,” he explained.
“In the finals, we will have Cebu being the center in the Visayas region, likewise, of the Luzon and Mindanao. Moreover, it was also considered the number of crowd as validated by the last Philippines-Singapore friendly,” he added.
Dofitas said in the regional matches, a double round-robin format shall apply with the top two teams advancing to the final qualifying round in Cebu on May 20-25.
During this round, the other top two teams from Luzon and Mindanao will be joining the cast of six squads which will be divided into two groups. The teams in each bracket will be playing in a double round-robin format to determine which top two teams from each group will advance in the semifinal matches, still in Cebu, on May 27-28.
In the semifinals, the top four squads will be playing in a home-and-away format while the top two teams after the semifinals will compete in the finals, still on a home-and-away format./


FEU Baby Tams rule UAAP for third time


FAR EASTERN University collected its second football title of the UAAP season by ruling the juniors tournament at the expense of Ateneo, 2-1, yesterday at Ateneo’s Moro Lorenzo field.
Audie Menzi struck what turned out to be the game-winner in the 74th minute as the Baby Tamaraws completed a comeback from a goal down to nail their third straight title.
The victory comes a day after the FEU women’s side bested La Salle, 2-0, to complete a sweep of the finals series.
Ateneo also took the men’s title Sunday with a sweep of University of the Philippines, ending a seven-year drought, and the Eaglets seemed poised to make it a double when Julian Vincent Roxas scored from the penalty spot in the 63rd minute.
But the response was immediate from FEU as Dave Doloso fired home three minutes later, setting the stage for Menzi’s heroics.
A beautifully struck free kick from Menzi, a defender, put the Baby Tamaraws in front for good. He was later named Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
“We were strong defensively and we were more relaxed,” said FEU’s Korean coach Kim Chul-Su, who was given a victory ride by his players after the match.
Harold Alcoresa was named the Best Striker after scoring a season-best six goals while his teammate Dave Parac took the Best Goalkeeper plum, while Ateneo’s Jarvey Gayoso was named Rookie of the Year.
