Blazers too strong for Chiefs

COLLEGE of St. Benilde came alive in the second half and pounded Arellano University 5-0 to grab the solo lead in the seniors’ division of the 93rd NCAA football tourney at the Rizal Memorial Complex grounds on Wednesday night.

Leading by a goal in the first half courtesy of Vincent Erik Lovitos who struck in the 12th minute, the Blazers unleashed a four-goal onslaught in the second half to improve to a league-best 13 match points on four wins and a draw.

Lovitos and Major Dean Ebarle accounted for three of their team’s four second half goals and finished with a brace apiece. Carmelo Vicente Genco the other goal.

The Chiefs skidded from No. 2 to No. 3 as the San Beda Booters were held to a 1-1 standoff by Lyceum. San Beda and AU had 10 match points each but the former had better goal differential 27-1.

Nimrod Balabat scored in the 51st minute to give San Beda, the defending champions, a 1-0 lead but Levi Malihan struck back with a rocket of his own in the 73rd as the Pirates escaped with a draw.

Lyceum, which forced CSB to a scoreless draw two weeks back, remained in the magic four with six points.

In the only other game, Perpetual Help and Mapua fought to a 2-2 standoff.

Tearing down the house (Second of a series)

‘The draft Federal Constitution is a clear example of tearing a house down in order to install a new door—where the new door goes into an existing door jamb. There’s barely anything new here, and the few things that are new, don’t actually need a constitutional amendment.’

‘The critique of Gene Lacza Pilapil, assistant professor of Political Science at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, one of the resource persons, should warn us about the draft Federal Constitution produced by the Duterte-created Consultative Committee.’
