Malaysia - Selangor FA arrive in Bacolod for
AFC Cup Group E Qualifiers vs. Ceres

The Selangor FA team from Malaysia arrived in Bacolod City last night ready to face home team Ceres La Salle FC in the 2016 AFC Cup Group E Qualifiers at the Panaad Stadium tomorrow.

Fresh from a 2-0 win back home against AirAsia, their third victory in the Malaysian Super League, the Selangor Red Giants are ready for the 7 p.m. battle tomorrow against the Ceres La Salle FC.

Equally prepared to defend their home turf are the members of the Ceres team, who are coming off a morale-boosting three straight wins in the UFL that produced 26 goals.

Silver Dragon posts
fifth win in Fil-Sino

Silver Dragon Transport beat Basecom, 80-72, to claim its fifth win after seven games in the Fil-Sino All Asian Countertrade Inc. Inter-Company Tournament at Bacolod Tay Tung High School Po Hang Gym.

In another game, JSY Countertrade won over Organic Solutions, 74-65.

Joshua Co led Silver Dragon with 36 points, 12 of them in the first quarter, despite Basecom taking an early 23-18 advantage.

Co's first quarter output equaled that of Siopao Dichavez of Basecom.

Church defends
Pacquiao on gay stance

The Philippine Catholic church yesterday defended boxing hero Manny Pacquiao for his opposition to gay marriage, saying he was only quoting the Bible.

But Father Jerome Secillano also said over radio station DZMM that Pacquiao should respect homosexuals and not judge and condemn them after the eight-division world champion last week described them as worse than animals.

Pacquiao, 37, who converted from Catholicism to an evangelical Protestant faith late in his boxing career, was pilloried by local gay rights groups and celebrities and has lost lucrative commercial endorsements as a result.
