Shrock rocket goal
lifts Ceres past Global

Stephan Schrock fired a rocket shot from 25-yards in the 78 th minute to carry Ceres-Negros FC past Global-Cebu FC, 1-0, in the Philippines Football League at the Pana-ad Park and Football stadium yesterday.

The win gave the Busmen another three points as they remained at No. 4 in the team standings with 32 points or two points behind No. 3 Global, with still six remaining games to play.

Cheered on by an estimated 2,000 crowd at the Pana-ad Stadium, Ceres held Global to a scoreless first half as both squads struggled with their finishing touches.

Servania absorbs first defeat

Bacoleño boxer Genesis Servania tasted his first defeat inside the boxing ring Saturday at the hands of WBO featherweight defending champion Oscar Valdez in Tucson, Arizona.

Servania, who is now based in Japan, managed to knock Valdez down in the fourth round but failed to dethrone the Mexican with the judges scoring the fight, 116-110, 119-111 and 117-109, in favor of the defending champion.

After the fourth round hit from Servania, Valdez unleashed his own power punch and sent the Bacoleño down face first to the canvass in the fifth round to impress the judges.

Star shuts down NLEX in PBA

Jio Jalalon just crossed the half court line with less than a second left in the third quarter and had to throw up a heave to beat the buzzer.

The long tom rattled in, and that capped a huge quarter for Star that spelled the difference in its crucial match against NLEX.

The Hotshots got a crack at grabbing a twice-to-beat advantage in the PBA Governors' Cup quarterfinals with a 101-93 win against the Road Warriors on the final day of the elimination round at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City last night.
