    Football Being Eyed as NCAA's Next Mandatory Sport

    Norman Lee Benjamin Riego, ABS-CBN Sports
    Posted at Jul 12 2016 09:05 AM | Updated as of Jul 12 2016 09:06 AM

    MANILA, Philippines -- As of this season, the 92nd in the league's history, the NCAA only has four mandatory sports: basketball, swimming, track and field, and volleyball.

    The most recent addition to that list was volleyball which was installed there just this year. All the other sports from the total of 14, meanwhile, are non-mandatory – ergo, not all 10 member schools participate in them.

    That is all set to change beginning next year, if the league’s management committee is to be believed. “Every year, we will add a mandatory sport like we did volleyball this year,” committee chair Mari Lacson told ABS-CBN Sports.

    Explaining the rationale behind their decision, Lacson shared that, from his point of view, only College of St. Benilde and San Beda College have fully-formed athletic programs. “It’s only fair for all member schools to maintain all the sports. It’s only force all member schools to complete their programs,” he said.

    San Beda Shines in Ang Liga Opener

    Posted on July 16, 2016 by angligafootball

    The two teams of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) powerhouse squad San Beda College (SBC) came out with wins in the opening day of the 14th season of Ang Liga at their home turf in Mendiola, Manila on Saturday.

    San Beda’s team A, who plays in the first division, thwarted top-tier newcomers University of Batangas (UB), 4-0, to notch their first victory in the tournament.

    Veteran standout Estephen Abriol started the scoring for the men from Mendiola in the 22nd minute while James Eje swiftly followed with a goal of his own six minutes after to hand their side a 2-0 advantage at the half.

    During the second half, San Beda’s dominant offense still prevailed over their provincial counterparts as Franco Dela Torre and Aljo Zabala managed to add on to the score line in the final 10 minutes of the affair.

    On the other hand, SBC Team B similarly caught their share of the winning column in division two as they escape the fierce second half rally of the reserve team of the University of the Philippines (UP).

    EAC Beats Malayan; San Beda, NU Figure in Draw

    Posted on July 18, 2016 by angligafootball

    Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) opened the 14th season of Ang Liga with a 3-2 win over Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL) while San Beda College (SBC) and National University (NU) figure in a 2-2 draw at the SBC Football Field in Mendiola, Manila on Sunday.

    The Generals emerged victorious in match day two of the premier collegiate pre-season tournament as they trounce their provincial foes through the brace of Marvin Lianza.

    Malayan was off to a hot start in their second division meeting with EAC as Carlo Cubio went uncontested for a shot on goal in the 17th minute to give their squad an early lead.

    It did not take long before the UN Avenue-based platoon got things going for their side as Lianza booted in his first goal of the contest in the 25th minute followed by Bryan Micabalo’s strike in the 34th to place EAC ahead, 2-1, at the break.

    However, MCL managed to bring the game back to square one immediately after the restart as Marvin Bonafe found space in their foes’ defense for a shot in the 46th minute.

    Football: Ateneo, UST Start Ang Liga Season with Wins

    Ateneo and UST take down UE and the University of Batangas to open the Ang Liga football tourney

    Nissi Icasiano
    Published 5:24 PM, August 02, 2016
    Updated 5:24 PM, August 02, 2016

    MANILA, Philippines – UAAP-member schools Ateneo de Manila University and University of Santo Tomas (UST) started their respective campaigns in the 14th season of the Ang Liga football tourney on a high note.

    Both teams won their matches on Sunday, July 31, at the San Beda College football field in Manila.

    The Blue Eagles earned their debut victory in the pre-season football competition with a convincing 2-0 drubbing of University of the East (UE) during the heated affair in the first division.

    Ateneo was on target after just 18 minutes of play on the pitch with a shot courtesy of Samuel Lim to give their side a 1-0 advantage going into the halftime break.

    In the second half, the blue-and-white squad capitalized on UE's defensive lapse as Jordan Jarvis managed to sneak in another goal during the 86th minute.

    Meanwhile, the UST Growling Tigers hardly took care of last year's second division winner University of Batangas (UB) with a 2-1 conquest.

    The Batangas-based Brahmans gave the Golden Booters their first taste of the lead in the 37th minute of action as UB's goalie Allyson Lopez accidentally kicked the ball into the back of his own net.

    Growling Tigers Score Twin Kills in Ang Liga

    BY THE MANILA TIMES ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2016

    The two teams of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) emerged victorious against their separate foes in the first and second division of Ang Liga at the San Beda College Football Field, Manila on Saturday.

    After bowing to College of Saint Benilde (CSB) in their previous, the first team of the Growling Tigers managed to bounce back with a victory over Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU), 2-1, in the first division.

    The men from Espana took the 1-0 advantage after the slow-starting first half following the strike of AJ Pasion in the 25th minute of the ball game.

    However, Ateneo caught one back two minutes after the break as Samuel Lim found the back of the net in the 47th minute to level the score a 1-1.

    UST pushed hard to assert their dominance over their fellow University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) squad and was rewarded with the game-winning shot of Jofridale Molino in the 59th.

    Consequently, the reserves of the Growling Tigers trounced Emilio Aguinaldo College, 6-1, through an early brace output of Jonas Del Rosario in the second division.

    BY JAELLE NEVIN REYES ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2016

    University of the Philippines (UP) remains unbeaten in the 14th season of Ang Liga after defeating University of Batangas (UB), 2-0, at the San Beda College Football Field, Manila on Sunday.

    How are draws resolved in elimination play in both the UAAP and the NCAA? Do they just give 1 ranking point each to the tied teams or do they resolve all draws with a penalty shoot-out every elimination game so that there will be no more draws?

    Normally a Draw in Football is just settled as a Draw, and yes, meaning one point for both teams.

    But in cases wherein one team really needs to win, like during Sudden-Death elimination games, then what happens is that first, there will be an extension to the game for I think two 15 minute halves. If there is still a Draw after that time, then that's the time when teams go into a Best of Five (per round) Penalty Shoot Out.

    San Beda Sweeps First Round of NCAA Football

    ABS-CBN News
    Posted at Dec 20 2016 02:49 PM

    MANILA, Philippines – After clinching the first round pennant, San Beda College is now setting its sights on ruling the four-team second round and reclaiming the NCAA football title that it lost in heartbreaking fashion to Arellano University last year.

    The Red Booters got back at the Chiefs with a vengeful 6-0 victory to cap their six-match sweep of the first round.

    San Beda also bested De La Salle-College of St. Benilde (CSB), the biggest threat to its title aspirations this year, in a 4-1 win that underscored the Red Booters' focus on nailing a record 22nd football crown.

    "We're just focused on preparing for the second round," said San Beda coach Michael Pediamonte. "But of course, at the back of our minds, we're also thinking of that 22nd title because that is really our motivation as a team."

    San Beda Denies Lyceum an Upset Win in NCAA football

    ABS-CBN News
    Posted at Jan 10 2017 06:45 PM

    MANILA, Philippines – Fil-Brit Connor Tacagni scored two goals to lift San Beda College to a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over the upset-seeking Lyceum of the Philippines University in the NCAA Season 92 football tournament on Tuesday at the Rizal Football Field

    The Red Booters, seeking a sweep of the tournament, found themselves down by a goal after Lyceum's Riel Mark Subebe came through on a set piece in the 15th minute.

    The 24-year-old Tacagni, a native of Manchester, England, came to San Beda's rescue as he unleashed a pair of rockets: the first of which came in the 41st minute; and the other – the match-winner – on the 81st.

    "I just focused on helping my team win," said Tacagni.

    The victory pushed the Red Booters closer to their goal of sweeping their way to the championship. San Beda also won all of their matches in the first round to take the pennant.

    San Beda Downs Arellano, Moves One Win from NCAA Football Title

    By Joey Villar (The Philippine Star) | Updated January 12, 2017 - 4:58pm

    MANILA, Philippines — San Beda leaned on the late heroics off Mike Daniel Riconalla and Adolfo Abada as it edged last year's champion Arellano U, 1-0 to move on the crest of claiming the 92nd NCAA football title at the Rizal Football Field Thursday.

    With the match appearing to head to a shootout after a scoreless tie, Riconalla headed home the match-clinching goal off a beautiful corner kick by Abada on the 81st minute that pushed the Red Booters one win away from claiming the crown via sweep.

    The win by the Mendiola-based school came on the heels of a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Lyceum of the Philippnes University that was decided by Fil-Brit Connor Tacagni's double.

    This time, San Beda went to Riconalla and Abada to secure the win.

    San Beda will play St. Benilde on Tuesday and a win will seal the former a league-best 22nd crown, leaving former member La Salle as the second most titled school with 21 championships.

    Tacagni Weaves Magic as San Beda Claims 22nd NCAA Football Crown

    By: Randolph B. Leongson - Reporter / @RLeongsonINQ
    INQUIRER.net / 06:19 PM January 17, 2017

    Connor Tacagni pulled off his biggest trick late to help San Beda complete a perfect campaign in the NCAA Season 92 men’s football with a 1-0 victory over St. Benilde Tuesday at Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

    Tacagni converted an unassuming cross that found the left corner of the net in the 116th minute to snare the Red Booters’ 22nd NCAA football title.

    “The desire of the players to win was so big,” said a jubilant coach Christopher Pedimonte.

    The Green Booters still had a chance to force a penalty shootout, but San Beda keeper Ralph Datoy stopped Jonel dela Cruz’ potential equalizer at the 120th minute to end the match.

    NU Bulldogs Football Team Feeling at Home in Cebu

    The NU Bulldogs are preparing for the UAAP Season 79 football tournament with a 10-day camp in Cebu, playing against other college teams from the CESAFI

    Mars G. Alison
    Published 9:00 AM, January 21, 2017
    Updated 9:00 AM, January 21, 2017

    CEBU CITY, Philippines - The National University collegiate football team are wrapping up their preparation for the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 79 seniors division football tournament with a 10-day training camp here in Cebu City.

    Newly installed head coach Mari Aberasturi said that they decided to come to Cebu because there are a lot of strong teams here with whom they can play tune-up games with as part of their final preparation.

    “In the 10 days here in Cebu, you can already go up against 5 quality teams,” said Aberasturi, who is also the assistant coach of the San Beda Red Booters who took the men’s football title of the NCAA Season 92 last Tuesday, January 17.

    The UAAP 78th Season will kickoff on February 5 with the NU Bulldogs facing the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors.

    The best finish that the NU Bulldogs had in the seniors division football tournament was at fifth place in the 76th season. Last year, the team finished 6th.

    “Right now we are working on their mentality, that they have the capability to win because right now they don’t fully believe that they will win. So we are confidence building,” said Aberasturi, who took over as head coach of the NU Bulldogs last September.

    He added that they will go through the season per game without thinking of advancing to the top 4 just yet as they still have adjustments to make in the team and the system.
