Rovers FC 12-Under Boys Rule 2018 DRFA bootfest

IT WAS complete domination by the Davao Rovers FC 12-under booters from start to finish in the 2018 DRFA Grassroots Football Tournament held every weekend from Feb 3 to March 10 at Tionko Field.

Davao Rovers FC

Rovers FC won all four elimination matches with the following scores: Rovers Southshield (5-1); Rovers vs RMC (9-0); Rovers vs Crocs (1-0); Rovers vs ADDU (7-0). The team then went on to crush RMC (5-0) in the semi-final round and outclassed Crocs FC (3-1) in a highly heated championship game.

Members of the Rovers FC saw Breindel Medina, Mavy Canton, Josh Agulo, Joaquin Suarez, Miguel Jao, Ken Azares, Kian Niu, Joerby Anito, Liam Martin, Nick Jao, Liam Marcus Te, Miguel Plotena, Icoi Mijares, Ralph Anderson, Ervin Tajon, JB Omilla and Miguel Olarte.

The 11-a-side with offside format tournament was organized by the Davao-South Regional Football Association. A unique component of the tournament was that all matches comprised of three periods with the second period being non-bearing to the final score.

This was implemented so that all team members, especially the younger players, received substantial playing time.

Team coaches Ed Walohan and Reynante Bangi took advantage of said format to give exposure to several “adopted” players from the Obu-Manuvu Tribe in Marilog.
