    UAAP 79 Football Preview: UP Maroons Face Tough Title Defense

    The nation's premier collegiate football league is set kick off. Can UP's men go back-to-back?

    5:00 pm ADMU vs ADU
    Weekly LIVE coverage on ABS-CBN S+A and S+A HD begins Thursday, Feb 9


    The UAAP Season 79 Men's Football season starts on February 4. Anto Gonzales' UP are one of the favorites to lift the trophy once again, a year after defeating Ateneo 4-1 in the Season 78 final match.

    The selectors for the SEA Games team will no doubt be keeping a keen eye on the matches this season, which will mostly take place in Rizal Memorial on weekends. The televised Thursday matches will be played in Ateneo's Moro Lorenzo Football Field.

    The Maroons face stiff competition from the rest of the 8-team field. Let's take a look at each side.

    Adamson: Continuing Growth

    Coach Nolan Manito achieved a milestone two years into the Falcons' return to UAAP football last year. The squad notched their first win, a 1-0 victory over UE, and finished seventh, one better than the year before.

    Manito brings an largely unchanged roster to battle this year, with leadership from the Jumo twins, Bless Brian I and Bless Brian II.

    The Falcons are often competitive in their matches but tend to leak a lot of goals. The centerback pairing of Bryce Rabino and Jackson Ramos will need to work well to insulate goalkeeper Carl Viray, whose development as a goalie must also accelerate. Viray is a fine shot-stopper who needs to make better decisions about venturing out of his area. It's likely he will get plenty of work once again this season.

    Adamson will not be a favorite to make the Final Four but they have been together now for 3 seasons, and cohesion counts a lot in football.

    Ateneo: New Cogs In The Mix.

    The Blue Booters have three new overseas-born Filipinos on their team, goalie AJ Arcilla from the USA and Jordan Jarvis and William Grierson from Hong Kong.

    Watch Jarvis score a glorious header in a loss to Timor Leste in last year's AFF U19 championship at 1:50 of this clip.


    The Freshman will likely play wingback for coach Jaypee Merida.

    Arcilla will battle incumbent Kenn James for the right to wear that number one shirt for the Eagles.

    Don't be surprised to see Carlo Liay drop back to centerback, where his experience and composure will be vital in the backline. Grierson could partner Liay in the back.

    Ateneo is bristling with weapons like Julian Roxas, an aerial threat in Rupert Baña, and sophomore sensation Jarvey Gayoso, who is likely to continue his goalscoring ways from the left flank. Gayoso recently raised eyebrows with a dazzling 40-yard run and shot in a U22 friendly against Malaysia's U22 team. Sam Lim, a rookie from Colegio de San Agustin, could also play a big factor.

    Another rookie, PAREF-Springdale's Enzo Ceniza is a highly-rated central midfielder. The son of coach Mario Ceniza, the Cebuano is known as a savvy passer.

    Ateneo fell one win short of the crown last year then were runner-ups again in the Ang Liga a few weeks ago. This could be their tournament to go all the way.

    De La Salle: One-two punch.

    The biggest off-season bit of good news for La Salle is the return of striker Gelo Diamante. The former youth national team striker is back for one more spin before taking medical school. For a second year he will play alongside younger brother Jed.

    But there is even better news: the Archers attack will also feature another gunslinger in rookie Mathew Custodio. The former U19 national team goalscorer was raised here but has a British father. Last year he went to the UK for some trials.

    Custodio is the kind of big forward that can really give UAAP defenders problems. Given the proper playing time he should be good for a half-a-dozen goals at the very least.

    DLSU has yet another homegrown Filipino-Brit rookie forward in Chris Lawless, who like Custodio played with Nomads. Smit says Lawless has “a real knack for goal.”

    Providing supply lines for the forwards will be Yoshiharu Koizumi, the Japanese-Davaoeño deep-lying playmaker who has tremendous passing touch. Koizumi impressed in the recent U22 friendly versus Malaysia and it's likely he will be serving up plenty of assists this season.

    “He's in the best shape since I got him,” marvels Smit.

    Far Eastern University: One Last Hurrah.

    FEU is in transition. The architect of their football program, Kim Chul Su, has gone home to Korea. Vince Santos, former Loyola coach, is now in charge. Midfield sparkplug Nano Amita, who sat out last year with an ACL injury, is a scratch for this season too after reinjuring the knee.

    This will be the last year of eligibility for a passel of standouts who formed the backbone of FEU's halycon days when they won the title in Seasons 76 and 77. Paolo Bugas, Val Jurao, Reymart Cubon, Patrick Rallos, Nicolas Ferrer, and Justin Calamba will all ride into the green-and-gold sunset after the last ball is kicked in a few months. Then next year a new crop of Tams, led by the promising youngster Gio Pabualan, will take the spotlight in Season 80, hopefully alongside Amita.

    Master Kim may be gone but there will still be a Korean influence in the person of UFL veteran Park Bo Bae, who is part of the Tams' coaching staff. Bugas says that Park's system will be similar to Kim's, so there will be little adjustment. The team is determined to forge ahead despite the transition.

    “Napagusapan namin sa buong team, including ang juniors team, na kahit anong mangyari, maglaro pa rin at mag perform ng maayos,” asserts Bugas, who is with both Global and the Azkals. (The whole team, including the juniors, agreed that no matter what happens we will play and perform well.)

    Just a reminder, the UAAP Football games are being televised once a week, from 2:00 to 6:00 pm at ABS Sports and Action every Thursday for the remainder of the Football Season. The coverage starts today.

    The games are getting good crowds, the UAAP Football Championship match last season between Ateneo and La Salle got very good attendance, it seems more College kids today are embracing the sport.

    Ateneo, UP Score Comfortable Wins in UAAP Football

    ABS-CBN News
    Posted at Feb 09 2017 07:09 PM

    MANILA, Philippines – Jarvey Gayoso scored a goal and assisted on another as Ateneo de Manila University picked up a second straight victory in the UAAP Season 79 men's football tournament with a 3-0 mastery of the 10-men National University (NU) Bulldogs on Thursday.

    Rookie Sam Lim found the back of the net from a Gayoso assist just before halftime to put the Blue Eagles ahead in front of a cheering crowd at the Moro Lorenzo Field in the Ateneo campus.

    Gayoso then converted a penalty two minutes upon restart, as NU defender Ross Lawagan was given a straight red card. It was Gayoso's third goal of the season, having netted a brace in last Sunday's 4-0 win over Adamson University.

    Mario Ceniza put the finishing touches on the Blue Eagles' comfortable win with a strike in the 78th minute.

    "Talagang nag-focus kami sa defending. Talagang there is no reason para mag-concede kami, kasi ayun ang pina-practice namin," said Ateneo coach JP Merida.

    UP Crushes NU for 2nd Straight Win in UAAP Football

    ABS-CBN News
    Posted at Feb 12 2017 08:17 PM

    MANILA, Philippines – Defending champion University of the Philippines (UP) posted its second straight victory in the UAAP Season 79 men's football tournament after crushing National University (NU), 4-0, on Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.

    Jeremiah Borlongan grabbed a brace in the first half, scoring in the 22nd and 27th minute for a 2-0 UP lead.

    King Miyagi and James Condat then added second half goals to seal the victory for the Fighting Maroons, who have scored a total of eight goals in their last two matches.

    Earlier, De La Salle University blanked University of the East (UE), 2-0, to hike their total to four points.

    Highlight of the game between Ateneo and De La Salle. Awesome first touch by Gayoso. But he needs to improve on his ballhandling, I haven't seen him create shots against 1-2 defenders around the box.

    NU versus DLSU in the 79th Season of the UAAP.

    The reason why Colina scored in this game is because he has been doing fakes, something which a lot of our College Football players have not been doing.

    UAAP Football: Is it Ateneo's Year?

    A squad bristling with weapons has given the Blue Eagles a perfect record. Can they go all the way?

    Bob Guerrero
    Published 4:36 PM, March 07, 2017

    UAAP Season 79 Men's Football
    UST vs NU
    ADMU vs FEU
    1:45pm Thursday March 9, Moro Lorenzo Football Field
    Telecast at 2:00 pm Friday, March 10 on ABS-CBN S+A


    After 6 games, an unlikely team sits atop the UAAP standings. Ateneo has ridden a bumper crop of rookies and other young players to take pole position with one match left in the first round. See the standings here.

    Coach Jaypee Merida sometimes starts as many as 6 rookies in his squad. Enzo Ceniza, Jordan Jarvis, keeper AJ Arcilla, William Grierson, Mark Nacional, Jimi Haosen, and Sam Lim all sport the shaved head that marks them as first-year players.

    One of his most senior players, captain Carlo Liay, is still recovering from a calf injury, meaning Jay-Ra Rocha has taken his place as the central man among the 3 centerbacks.

    None of this has fazed the team that has only allowed two goals all season long, against UE and UST. But complementing the ironclad defense is a prolific attack that has rocked opposing goal frames with 17 scores in 6 matches, 6 more than the next best side, UP.

    Three-pronged attack

    Ateneo's marquee player is sophomore Jarvey Gayoso. The wide attacking threat has sporting pedigree on both sides of his family. His father is former PBA player Jayvee, and his maternal grandfather is Ed Ocampo, a legendary Ateneo basketball and football star. The upper college field in Ateneo is named after him.

    Gayoso is a serial box ticker. A Kiefer Ravena in cleats. He has scoring chops, as evidenced by his 5 goals this season. Amazingly he says he has 5 assists this season too. The kid displays a preternatural ability to outfox defenders with his mind as well as his feet.

    One unheralded but very important arrow in Gayoso's quiver is his corner-taking. At the UAAP level many corner kicks are soft and high, necessitating Incredible Hulk-like neck muscles to power headers goalward. But Jarvey, (pronounced “Harvey”), has the technique to zip them in low and hard, so that center forwards need only to redirect the ball with power to beat goalies.

    Gayoso is also internationally-sized and internationally-quick. He has played for our national U19 team and is definitely in the mix for the SEA Games. What he needs to work on is his physical strength (he is a bit reedy), and his right foot, which plays a distant second fiddle to his world-class left.

    But playing off Gayoso is Ceniza, who is an early favorite for Rookie of the Year honors.

    “Enzo has impressed me the most of all the rookies,” says Gayoso. “It's difficult for a rookie to be in an intense position like his and he has handled it well enough to dominate against the teams in the middle.”

    Ceniza was a prodigy. He first started playing at the age of 4 and was in the youth national team system at the age of 13. He has won the Milo nationals twice as the tournament MVP. Ceniza is also the son of legendary Cebuano player and coach Mario Ceniza. No doubt all the football talk over the kitchen table has helped.

    ADMU dominated the first half, but UST made adjustments and dominated the second half, almost sending the game into overtime. Nevertheless, ADMU secures the first finals slot in the UAAP.
