Monday, February 10, 2014
ACCENTURE ended its impressive campaign in the 16th Aboitiz Football Cup with a trophy in hand after beating Innodata, 2-0, in the Men’s BPO finals yesterday at the Aboitiz Sports Field.
Albert Nangkil hit the back of the net in the 25th minute and Earl Mondero sealed the win with another goal eight minutes later.
Three Accenture players bagged individual awards – Nangkil was the division’s top scorer, Mark Buglosa was named MVP and Fritz Abenido was declared the best defender.
Innodata’s Darwin Bordalba was awarded as the best midfielder, while his teammate Peter Onde was named the best goalkeeper.
Convergys finished at third place in the Men’s BPO category after a 2-0 victory over Lexmark.
In the men’s open, Cebu Queen City United (CQCU) had an impressive display of talent following a 6-0 demolition of Liloan SFC. In the first half, both teams were equally matched and still scoreless at halftime.
However, CQCU showed that they are in a different league in the second half and toyed around with a hapless Liloan SFC.
Cyril Mokulo Nji broke the ice and scored the first goal in the 51st minute. Nji barreled his way deep into the Liloan SFC defense and struck at point blank range.
From then on it was all CQCU with substitute Johny Davidson scoring the second goal in the 60th after a nifty pass by right back Marion Cubelo.
Rommel Cuizon made it 3-0 after scoring in the 68th minute. Davidson then had three more goals for the final count.
Subangdaku beat University of San Carlos (USC), 1-0, while Leylam FC edged out Continental AFS, 2-1, in the Under-23 division.
In the Inter Company category, Arkiteks United didn’t break a sweat with a 3-0 default win over Kalayaan Engineering; T-United squeaked past Erco FC, 2-1; and Leylam FC defeated San Miguel, 2-0.
In the BPO Ladies, USC routed Lexmark, 3-0, while Convergys won 3-0 over Accenture by default. Erco FC settled to a 1-1 draw with KN Ferraren in the only 38-and-Above match, while Don Bosco Technology Center beat St. John Semenary, 3-0.
