Paref-Spring­dale ad­vanced to the semi­fi­nal round de­spite los­ing its last match to Don Bosco Tech­no­log­i­cal Cen­ter (DBTC) 1, 2-1, in the Aboitiz Cup Boys 18 tour­na­ment at the Cebu City Sports Cen­ter (CCSC) last Dec. 6.

DBTC 1 ended its cam­paign on a strong note af­ter scor­ing its first vic­tory, 2-1, but it was not enough to pre­vent Spring­dale from mov­ing into the semi­fi­nal round.

Spring­dale fin­ished se­cond in the group with six points on a 2-2 win-draw record and a goal dif­fer­ence of 1. USC also has a 2-2 record but has a -2 goal dif­fer­ence to set­tle for third place.

Spring­dale will face Group A No. 1 Don Bosco Boys Home in the semi­fi­nals, while Sa­cred Heart School-Ate­neo de Cebu will take on Pomeroy in the other semi­fi­nal.

In the men’s open di­vi­sion, Don Sacradel ended up No. 1 in Group A af­ter a 4-2 rout over the Uni­ver­sity of San Jose-Reco­le­tos (USJ-R) to fin­ish the group stage un­de­feated. USJ-R also ad­vanced as it got se­cond place with six points.

Don Sacradel will take on the Uni­ver­sity of Cebu in the quar­ter­fi­nals, while USJ-R will face Group B No. 1 Makoto, which also posted a 3-0 record in the group stage.

In Group C, the Uni­ver­sity of the Visayas and Ley­lam were set to face off last Dec. 7 for the No. 1 spot in Group C, while the Uni­ver­sity of San Car­los-Queen City United was set to play Don Bosco Magone. USC-QCU, the reign­ing Cebu Schools Ath­letic Foun­da­tion Inc. cham­pion, needs to win by at least 10 goals to fin­ish as No. 1 in Group D and avoid a quar­ter­fi­nal clash with fa­vorites Ley­lam.

South­west­ern Uni­ver­sity leads the Group D with 7 points and a + 19 goal dif­fer­ence while USC is se­cond at four points and a +10 goal dif­fer­ence. /
