8 teams eye semis seats today


Eight teams will try to advance to the semifinal round of the Inter BPO/Company category of the 15th Aboitiz Football Cup which resumes today at the Aboitiz Sports Field in Subangdaku, Mandaue City.

Advancing to the quarterfinal round today are Innodata, Leylam, ERCO, Accenture, Unitech Pipe, Convergys-A, Timex-BP, and either NCR or Wipro FC.

Bracket A leader Innodata will go up against Bracket B second finisher Leylam. Innodata won all of its four matches for a perfect score of 12 points, while Leylam has six points.

Leylam actually won all three of its matches but a protest filed by Timex-BP saw it conceding its 3-0 win to the protester.

Timex-BP, who eventually topped the bracket, protested against former national team member Oliver Colina whom they claimed should not have played being the team’s head coach.

The organizers ruled in favor of Timex BP and gave them the win.

Timex BP will face Bracket A second placer Convergys-A. The team finished in second spot after dropping just one of its four games for nine points.


Bracket C leader NCR may lose its quarterfinal slot to Wipro FC who finished third in the bracket after some of its players are still on vacation.

The organizers decided to give them until 5 p.m. yesterday to inform them if they would be able to show up or not so they would not be charged with the no-show fee.

In case NCR fails to gather enough players, the team will have to give up its quarterfinal slot to Wipro FC which finished the eliminations with three points after winning one and losing two of its three matches.

Either NCR or Wipro will be facing ERCO which placed second in Bracket D with five points equivalent to one win and two draws.

Bracket D leader Unitech Pipe, for its part, will face Bracket C second finisher Accenture.

Both teams actually finished the elimination round with seven points on two wins and one draw, except that they belong to different brackets.

Four matches will also be played in the men’s open with DBU FC A facing FCIC, DBU FC B going up against DB Magone, San Roque Football Club vs. B-Meg Camellans and Avengers FC playing Toledo Harumi.

Meanwhile, the friendly game between the US Navy and Cebu Queen City United has been moved from today to tomorrow still at 3 p.m.  because the arrival of the US Navy here in Cebu was delayed due to typhoon Quinta.

Their time slot today, will instead be taken up by the match between CAFC and DB Razkals.
