Davao Aguilas FC Thwarts Expected Global Cebu FC Win in Home Turf, Ends Game with a Clean Sheet

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Visiting team Davao Aguilas FC, came in as an underdog in an exciting Saturday night match at the Cebu City Sports Center. The home crowd expected a third straight win from Global Cebu FC, winning over Ceres Negros FC and Stallions Laguna FC just days before. But the Aguilas thwarted the crowd’s expectation and ended the match with a clean sheet, and a score of 0-0.

Davao Aguilas FC on the other hand, ’upped its game’ after its most recent setback in its own turf last week, after a loss of 5-1.

Coach Gary Phillips says, “I’m very proud of the team’s performance tonight, particularly at the back of last week’s results, which was unacceptable. But to play a strong team like Global Cebu FC and to stick together and maintain their discipline, and they kept a clean sheet. I’m very proud of the team’s effort.”

Goalkeeper Marko Trkulja was named Man of Match.

San Miguel Brewery and the Sportswriters Association of Cebu also took the time out after the match, to hand over the award of recently signed Aguilas player, 19-year old Jordan Jarvis. Jarvis was conferred the 35th All Cebu Sports Awards Special Citation for excellence in football and contributing to the professionalism of the sport. This was also Jarvis’ second award from the association.

Jarvis was also named UAAP season 79’s Rookie of the Year for men’s football earlier this year, after Ateneo bagged its 7th UAAP championship.

Miss Manila Karen Ibasco is Miss Philippines Earth 2017

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Congratulations to the new MISS PHILIPPINES EARTH for 2017 - Miss Manila Karen Ibasco!

The Coronation Night held on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena crowned another beauty queen hailing from Malate, Manila. She will now compete for the title of Miss Earth soon.

At an interview held right on the stage of the MOA Arena, Karen revealed that she was not the reigning Miss Manila but was only sent as a representative by no less than Mayor Joseph "Erap" Estrada himself to represent Manila at the Miss Philippines Earth beauty pageant.

Well, we have to commend the good mayor for an excellent choice since Karen really impressed us with not only her looks but with her outstanding answer during the final and ultimate Question and Answer portion where only one question was asked of the five finalists. While others were prevented fro hearing the question, each candidate gave her answer to the question that goes something like "The government's slogan is Change is Coming, what change do you want to see in terms of Environmental Policy in the country?"

We asked Karen if she was aware that her answer clinched her win since the other finalists did not directly answer the question. Well, she said she somehow knew it because of the reaction and wild applause of the audience. 

Now, I truly believe that the judges do care about the intellect of the candidates since they picked the one with the best answer as the ultimate winner.
