UC Tops National Sepak Takraw

October 29, 2012

The second fiddles played hero as the jaguars of the University of the Cordilleras roared their way to the national title.

The UC Team B ruled bracket D then stopped perennial champion Puerto Princesa, 10-15, 15-10 and 15-13 to win the Philippine Amateur Sepak Takraw National Open over the weekend at the Brent Gym of the Ultra in Pasig City.

After topping bracket B of the 16 team field by beating Makati, Marikina and Bulacan State University. UC 2 topped bracket D winner Olongapo to make on the perennial champion. It was a rousing victory and morale booster in the semis as they avenged Team 1's defeat against Olongapo which denied UC's top players a semis appearance.

But Imar Campana, Ferdinand Sibayan, Wendell Caligtan, Mark Rondol Abdon and Agustin Gabriel came through with the finals win to make up for the defeat of Michael Angelo Acurin, Kenneth Kevin Rivera, Emmanuel Cupido and Lucky Amor Mateo for the crown to add up to UC's growing board of awards including the 16 trophies it won as 16-peat champion of the Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League.

Then the fearsome showed that they can play against the country's bests by giving the RP squad a run for their money but still bowed 13-15 in the exhibition game that followed the event.

UC 2 actually even led 8-4 before the nationals came back to rally, take the lead at 14-12 but could not close out as the Jaguars nearly extended the game.
