The Davao-South Regional Football Association (DRFA) under 15 team scored a morale boosting 2-1 victory against home team Davao del Norte FA at the start of the 2019 Philippine Football Federation (PFF) U15 National Championship at the Davao del Norte Sports Complex in Tagum City in the afternoon of Saturday, July 6.

DRFA defender Gian Carlo Caserial scored the two winning goals for the Davao City based FA to beat the home team made up of the top young football players of the province of Davao del Norte.

The team coached by Alex Adolfo is also composed of Luis Antonio Aquino, Saidamin Bacol, Gian Andrew Bernaldez, Miguel Luis Cerin, Uriel Dalapo, Alesandro Romero  Ea, Jose Miguel Fabello, Jhojie Fernandez, Arseth Jelp Jayubo, Gian Lacerna, Vianney Ross Lagundi, Matthaeus Henricus Lim, Janfritz Llubit, Psalm Emmanuel Loquero, Breindel Medina, Rhianne Axelle Mendoza, Christian Jay Osog, Ronmer Lei Paciente, Alexander Pichon, Gian Paolo Sartirani, and Kent Lee Sia.

Adolfo is very pleased with their win since they are on the right track in their quest to represent Mindanao in the national finals later this year.

After their initial win, DRFA hopes to win its second game when it hosts the Iligan Lanao del Norte Regional Football Association (ILRFA) on July 13 at the Davao City-University of Philippine Sports Complex in Bago Oshiro, Tugbok, Davao City.

The nationwide tournament was organized by the PFF to determine the top under 15 FA in the country.
