BACOLOD CITY -- with its hopes for a fifth consecutive UAAP crown dashed because of suspension, De La Salle University’s women’s football team has brought its act to another virtual playground -- the University Games.

The Lady Archers launched their bid for an unprecedented eighth straight UniGames crown in style, overpowering Xavier University of Cagayan de Oro, 12-0, yesterday.

Hat-tricks from Fiona Mackenzie and Samantha Bermudez highlighted the flying start by La Salle, which is grouped with Ateneo de Manila University, a 6-1 winner over Silliman University.

La Salle, suspended for the 2006-07 season by the UAAP after the school fielded ineligible players in men’s basketball, is also seeing action in volleyball and women’s basketball here.

The La Salle cagebelles proved too strong for St. Louis University, 98-48, on a day when other UAAP teams sent a strong message to the rest of the field with dominating performances.

The Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, who narrowly lost the UAAP crown to the University of Santo Tomas Tigresses, mauled Silliman University, 73-25, while the Lady Eagles whipped University of San Agustin, 70-47.

In women’s volleyball, UST, powered by RP team standout Mary Jane Balse and crowd-favorite Denise Tan, cruised to an easy 25-11, 25-19, 25-21 victory over Foundation University while La Salle beat University of Cebu, 25-11, 25-10, 25-17.

Host University of St. La Salle drubbed Silliman University, 25-7, 25-11, 25-12.

In a rare meeting between the two teams in men’s volleyball, College of St. Benilde overpowered University of the Philippines, 25-19, 25-20, 33-31, while UST walloped Ateneo de Davao, 25-16, 25-8, 25-22.

Men’s basketball action saw four-time UniGames champion St. Francis of Assisi Doves score a resounding 89-70 triumph over Iloilo’s University of San Agustin.

USLS tripped Mindanao State University, 89-77; Colegio de La Purisima Concepcion thumped SLU, 83-71, and University of Iloilo trounced Holy Angel University.

Action in badminton, lawn tennis and table tennis gets going today while, the medal-rich athletics and swimming competitions start Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. With a report from Christian Irl Tan

The Philippine Star 10/24/2006

BACOLOD — Metro Manila schools stamped their class in various fronts in the University Games last night with Emilio Aguinaldo College and De La Salle fashioning out victories over La Carlota City College and St. Louis University in men’s and women’s basketball, respectively, here.

The EAC cagers blasted the Negros Occidental-based La Carlota squad, 99-65, to kick off their campaign in men’s basketball while the La Salle cagebelles opened their bid with a 98-46 rout of the Baguio-based SLU quintet.

Fifty-one schools are seeing action in this year’s University Games hosted by the University of St. La Salle for the ninth time since it was conceptualized by former USLS president Bro. Rolando Dizon in 1995.

University of San Agustin, however, scored an 89-70 victory over St. Francis of Assissi College in the other men’s basketball matchup.

Ateneo de Manila also posted an emphatic 70-47 win over University of San Agustin in women’s caging.

In men’s volleyball, defending champion Far Eastern University won over Philippine Christian University, 18-25, 25-18, 25-17, 25-18, while De La Salle University-Dasmarinas swept Holy Cross Davao, 25-16, 25-8, 25-22. — Antonieta Lopez

BACOLOD CITY -- Defending basketball champion West Negros College picked up where it left off last year, rolling past University of Northern Philippines, 101-62, last night for its first win in the University Games at the St. La Salle Coliseum here.

On a day when teams from Metro Manila continued to make their presence felt on all fronts, the Mustangs, who lost three key players to UAAP teams this year, showed they still had enough firepower to foil the Vigan-based UNP’s upset bid.

The St. Francis of Assisi Doves, whom the Mustangs routed to win the 2005 title, also revved up their campaign by scoring against University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos, 84-49, their second victory in as many games.

Two-time winner Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals coasted to their second win in Bracket C, dumping Negros Oriental State University, 81-58, while St. Louis University trounced Mindanao State University, 88-81.

Over at the Natalio Velez gym in Silay City, UAAP finalist Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws downed Holy Angel University, 81-58, even as Lyceum of the Philippines came through with a hard-earned 73-64 triumph.

In women’s football, De La Salle University drew hat-tricks from Fiona Mackenzie and Samantha Bermudez for the second straight day in an 8-0 win over Silliman University. University of Santo Tomas and Ateneo de Manila University played to a scoreless draw.

Over at the Paglaum pitch, “three-peat”-seeking University of St. La Salle opened up with a 5-2 win over University of San Carlos in men’s football, while rival WNC routed SLU late Monday.

In a highly physical match, USC upset University of the Philippines, 2-0. The match ended with four players from UP sent off.

La Salle all but secured its place in the quarterfinals with a 17-0 massacre of UNP. Silliman won against SLU, 4-0, to keep its hopes alive.

UP suffered another blow in women’s volleyball, falling to Holy Cross of Davao College, 19-25, 15-25, 18-25. Reigning champion FEU defeated USA-Iloilo, 25-12, 25-13, 25-13, while USLS beat University of the Cordilleras, 27-25, 25-12, 25-27, 25-23, for its second victory.

After holding a slim 34-31 lead at halftime, Norman Jacinto, Lhoy Miraflores and Jan Repique combined for 26 points in the third quarter as the Stingers established a 63-50 buffer that they never relinquished.

Jacinto finished with a game high 24 points, while Miraflores contributed 11 markers. Repique and Miguel Melocoton chipped in 10 points each.

Pacing MSU was Jumil Arumpac with 19 points, while Haroun Caleb and Jade Aranco canned 11 markers each. Also finishing in double figures for the Marawi-based teams was Jamel Decatamonegan with 10 points. Other games in the men's division saw Colegio Dela Purisima Concepcion trampling St. Louis University, 83-71, in bracket D; St. Francis of Assisi College demolishing University of San Agustin-Iloilo, 89-70, in bracket B and Negros Oriental State University clipping University of Iloilo, 85-81, in bracket C.

Emilio Aguinaldo College, the 2004 champion, crushed La Carlota City College, 99-65, in the other bracket C game.

USLS spikers, cagers stay
unbeaten, Mustangs score

Reigning titlist West Negros College opened its campaign with an emphatic 101-62 victory over University of Northern Philippines in men's basketball even as the basketball and volleyball squads of University of St. La Salle posted their second wins on Day Two of the 11th National University Games in Bacolod City yesterday.

The Mustangs, mentored by rookie coach Dennis "Jack" Tumayan, raced to a 30-13 buffer at the end of the first quarter with Ely Olarte and Vengie Vergara hitting three and two three-point shots, respectively.

Even with the departure of twin towers Severino Baclao and Sunny Abaring together with point guard Johnblargs Alisbo, WNC showed that it still has enough firepower with Olarte, Vergara and Tizon at the helm.

The Stingers also continued its winning run by rallying past St. Louis University, 97-76, last night with diminutive guard Norman Jacinto and slotman Ryan Miraflores.

It was the second win for coach Troy Sarabia's squad, which earlier defeated Mindanao State University, 99-77.

Just as SLU tried to trim the gap in the closing minutes, the fleet-footed Jacinto, who finished with a game-high 26 points and Miraflores presided a 20-6 run and the Stingers went on to clinch the victory with a swarming defense that forced the Baguio cagers into a maze of errors.

But the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos absorbed a 49-84 routing at the hands of former champion St. Francis of Assisi College Doves.

Meanwhile, the USLS male spikers breezed to an easy 25-15, 25-20, 25-22 victory over Negros Oriental State University , while the St. La Salle women's volleyball team survived University of the Cordilleras, 27-25, 25-12, 25-27, 25-23.

The USLS men's lawn tennis teams also got off to a good start by registering 3-0 triumphs each against Mindanao State University and University of San Agustin-Iloilo.

But the lady netters of St. La Salle failed to duplicate the feat of the male compatriots losing to USA-Iloilo, 0-3.

In the other men's basketball games, two-time titlist Emilio Aguinaldo College drubbed NORSU, 81-58, for its second victory, while Holy Cross of Davao College trounced Foundation University, 64-54.

Also emerging victorious were SLU and University of Iloilo as they beat MSU, 88-81, and Ateneo de Davao University, 79-55.

In the women's hostilities at the Natalio G. Velez Gym in Silay City, Far Eastern University toppled Holy Angel University, 64-52, while Lyceum of the Philippines University hammered UI, 73-64.

The De La Salle University-Taft male spikers opened their bid with victories over UNP, 25-12, 25-19, 25-17, and UNO-R, 25-13, 28-26, 25-21, as DLSU-Dasmariñas cruised to a 25-8, 25-9, 25-16 win over SU.

Other games saw Iloilo Doctor's College rallying past College of St. Benilde , 20-25, 25-22, 23-25, 25-23, 15-10, and USA-Iloilo thumping AdDU, 25-15, 25-20, 25-22.

In women's play, AdMU survived UNO-R, 25-14, 25-21, 21-25, 21-25, 15-10, HCDC posted a 25-19, 25-15, 25-18 smashing of UP for its second consecutive win.

Other encounters saw defending champion FEU clobbering USA-Iloilo, 25-13, 25-14, 25-21; SU whipping Assumption College, 25-12, 25-13, 25-13, and Adamson University crushing FU, 25-20, 25-15, 25-22.

Over at the Paglaum pitch in men's football, DLSU routed UNP, 17-0, while the SU booters blanked SLU, 4-0.

In a match marred by ejections, University of San Carlos posted a 2-0 triumph over UP, which had four of its players booked. Ryan Lim broke the ice in the 80th minute, before Kyle Soriano sealed the win for USC in the 87th minute.

In women's action, eight-time defending champion DLUS scored its second victory with an 8-0 demolition of SU, before University of Sto. Tomas and Ateneo played to a scoreless draw. *CIT

La Salle booters, Lady Eagles win

BACOLOD CITY—Host St. La Salle kept its poise to hack out a 5-4 shootout victory over local rival West Negros College yesterday and capture its third straight men’s football crown to share the limelight with the Ateneo Lady Eagles on the penultimate day of the National University Games here.

La Salle striker Floriano Pasilan sent his spotkick to the bottom left corner for the title-clinching goal, just moments after WNC’s Jehram Calvo saw his shot rattle the bar and go wide.

Although the West Negros booters, who also lost to La Salle in last year’s finals, enjoyed long spells of possession early on, they could not capitalize with Robert Cañedo, Siegfred Apurado and Calvo all missing some clear goal-scoring chances from close range.

The La Sallians also got a huge lift from Miguel Gonzales, who played at midfield in the first two games, before playing goalkeeper in the final three games, replacing the ineffective Roan Datulayta.

Over at the St. La Salle Coliseum, the Lady Eagles ended their season on a high note, posting a come-from-behind 53-48 triumph over Far Eastern University.

With Cassy Tioseco clogging the middle, the Ateneans overcame a 12-point deficit early in the second half and held the Lady Tamaraws to just four points in the final period.

Tioseco finished with 22 points in pacing the Lady Eagles, who lost to the Lady Tams in the UAAP Final Four recently.

“The UAAP loss was farthest on our minds. This is a great end to our season,” Ateneo coach John Flores told the Inquirer.

Meanwhile, former champion Emilio Aguinaldo College dethroned West Negros College with a thrilling 68-67 win that set up a finals showdown with Adamson University in the men’s basketball tournament.

Chester Ebuen scored 22 points, including two free throws with four seconds left that gave EAC a 68-64 cushion and helped the Generals exact revenge against the Mustangs, who foiled their “three-peat” bid last year in the semifinals.

The Generals survived the Mustangs late surge with timely baskets from Ebuen and Ronjay Buenafe, whose trey from the corner provided EAC room to breathe, 62-55, with 1:04 left.

West Negros sorely missed twin towers Sivirino Baclao and Sunny Abaring, who are set to play for Ateneo de Manila University and Far Eastern U in the next UAAP season, respectively.

Buenafe scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half on 4-of-5 shooting from beyond the arc.

“My players were very tired late in the game but I’m happy we got our revenge,” said Generals coach Nomar Isla, who guided EAC to the University Games crown in 2004 and 2005.

Later, Adamson trounced surprise semifinalist University of Iloilo, 71-60, with Aldrin Margallo pacing the Falcons with 15 points.

The title duel is set at 10 a.m. today.

In men’s volleyball, Far Eastern U and Philippine Christian U arranged a title showdown after overwhelming De La Salle-Dasmariñas and St. La Salle, respectively, at the USLS College Covered Court.

The Dolphins survived St. La Salle, 26-24, 15-25, 25-23, 25-20, before Far Eastern overpowered De La Salle-D, 25-18, 20-25, 26-24, 25-13.

BACOLOD CITY -- Far Eastern University punctuated an awe-inspiring performance with another volleyball sweep yesterday, even as Emilio Aguinaldo College clinched its third men’s basketball crown in four years at the close of the 11th National University Games here.

The Tamaraws walloped Philippine Christian University, 25-20, 25-19, 25-18, in less than an hour to retain their title, before the Lady Tamaraws pulled off a scrambling 25-21, 23-25, 25-18, 25-23 win over the University of Santo Tomas volleybelles at the St. La Salle College covered court.

The twin kill hiked the Tamaraws’ title haul to five in the weeklong games. FEU also topped men’s badminton and men’s table tennis and women’s athletics and missed the men’s athletics title only by a single gold.

De La Salle University, fielding a total of 11 squads here, and College of St. Benilde shared second overall with three crowns apiece.

The Archers claimed a record eighth straight title in women’s football, following victories in women’s swimming and women’s chess, while CSB swept both divisions in lawn tennis and ruled women’s table tennis.

Host St. La Salle retained its men’s football crown and reigned supreme in sepak takraw. Also making their presence felt were Ateneo de Manila University (women’s basketball) San Beda College (men’s swimming), University of the East (men’s taekwondo), UST (men’s athletics) and John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation (women’s taekwondo).

In the last match of the Games, the EAC Generals went on a first-quarter tear on their way to a relatively easy 79-67 win over the Adamson University Falcons at the St. La Salle Coliseum.

Ronjay Buenafe topscored for the Generals with 28 points, while Alain Musni and Chester Ebuen added 17 and 14, respectively.

EAC bags cage crown anew, USLS retains football title
By Henry C. Villalva
CURTAINS closed in the 2006 11th National University Games at the University of St. La Salle Sunday with 2004 titlist Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals claiming the men’s basketball crown by defeating an outplayed Adamson University Falcons, 79-69, at the USLS Coliseum.

It was the Generals’ second Unigames crown after they lost last year in the semi-finals to eventual 2005 champion West Negros College Mustangs.

Ironically, it was the Mustangs they defeated in Saturday’s semis, 68-67, en route to Sunday’s finals clash with the Falcons.

But the basketball faithful who trooped to the USLS venue anticipating an exciting title clash were disappointed as the Generals led by 20 points several times in the match as Adamson, mentored by former PBA star William ‘Bogs’ Adornado, struggled offensively.

Forward Ronjay Buenafe led EAC with 28 points while Alain Musni and Chester Ebuen chipped in with 17 and 14 points, respectively for Coach Nomer Isla’s charges.

The all-around Miguel Pacheco and guard Marvin Poloyapoy finished with 16 points apiece in Adamson’s losing effort.

Meanwhile, dethroned champion WNC Mustangs settled for second runner-up honors after they drubbed the University of Iloilo Wildcats, 81-72, in battle for third place.

The Mustangs, mentored by Dennis Tumayan, finished with a balanced offensive with three-point specialist Vengie Vergara topscoring with 19 points.

Other scorers were point guard Stanley Tizon with 13, swingman Ely Olarte and Bernard Suante with 10 apiece, Joel Deocadiz with 8 while Winrich Posoc, Alfie Villariza and slotman Vergilio Dapar added 6 points each and Rundy Baydo 3.

Meanwhile, the USLS football squad retained its men’s football title after posting a 5-4 victory via a penalty shootout over Nopsscea tormentor West Negros College after both sides played to a scoreless draw at the end of regulation and the 20-minute extension periods.

Jason Panhay, Emerson Campo, Arnie Pasinabo, Carlos Bolo, Jr. and Floriano Pacilan converted their penalty kicks for USLS while WNC’s Jeram Calvo missed out on his kick as the ball sailed past the left post.

University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos finished third after a 1-0 victory over De La Salle University courtesy of a goal by Sharr Llera making it a 1-2-3 finish for local squads in this year’s Unigames men’s football competition.

Meanwhile, San Beda College took 27 gold medals, 7 silvers and 4 bronzes to retain its men’s swimming crown while De La Salle University dethroned University of the Philippines in the women’s contest with its 4-5-4 gold-silver-bronze tally.
