Ceres Negros wins 9-0 in 2018 AFC Cup opener

Three players scored twice while two others chipped in as well to power Bacolod-based football club Ceres Negros FC to a resounding 9-0 win over Cambodia's Boeung Ket Angkor to open their 2018 AFC Asian Cup campaign, Tuesday evening at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Bacolod.  Japanese forward Takumi Uesato opened the floodgates for Ceres Negros, so to speak, as he was the first to get on the board with a goal in the 15th minute.  Four minutes later, Spanish striker Bienve Marañon made it a 2-0 advantage for the home team.  Uesato and Marañon would each score one more time, to make it a comfortable 4-0 advantage in just 29 minutes of action.  OJ Porteria found the back of the net in the 31st minute to make it a 5-0 scoreline even before the midgame break.  As if The Busmen needed any more help on the offensive end, Boeung Ket Angkor defender Sun Sovannarith kicked the action off in the second half with an own goal in the 58th minute to make it a 6-0 lead for the Pinoy side.  Skipper Carlie De Murga and substiture Manny Ott both added a goal each, in the 64th and 81st minutes respectively, while Porteria scored once more to put the final touch with five minutes left in regulation.  The dominant win puts the inaugural PFL champions at the top of the standing in Group F with a win and three points. Singapore's Home United sits at second with an identical one win and three point-standing, while Shan United and Boeung Ket Angkor round out the group, each with a loss.  Ceres Negros return to action on February 27th when they head to Singapore for a showdown with Home United at the Jalan Besar Stadium. .....»»

Ceres hits AFC Cup milestone in drubbing of Boeung Ket

BACOLOD CITY - Ceres Negros FC launched its AFC Cup campaign in style, drubbing an overmatched Boeung Ket side, 9-0, last Tuesday night for its most lopsided victory yet in the continental competition at Panaad Stadium. Not even a downpour caused by Tropical Storm Basyang can stop the Busmen from delivering a spectacular performance in front of their home fans as they rolled past the Cambodian champions. A brace each from Takumi Uesato, Bienve Maranon and OJ Porteria and a goal apiece from captain Carlie De Murga and substitute Manny Ott propelled the Busmen to a record-setting night. An own goal from Boeung Ket defender Sun Sovanrithy in the second half inflicted more miser...Keep on reading: Ceres hits AFC Cup milestone in drubbing of Boeung Ket.....»»

Pinoy club Global Cebu falls short in 2018 AFC Cup opener

A late goal from Senegalese forward Pape Omar Faye proved to be the difference, as Filipino club Global Cebu FC came up short in their 2018 AFC Cup opener against Vietnamese club FLC Than Hoa at the My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi, Saturday. A tightly contested first half saw neither side give up any goals, leading to a scoreless stalemate at halftime. Fortune favored the home team in the 74th minute, as Faye turned a cross from Nguyen Xuan Thanh into a perfectly-placed header that sailed past Global keeper Patrick Deyto and into the back of the net. The Pinoy side couldn’t come up with an equalizer as Than Hoa held on for the victory. The win propels Than Hoa to the top of the Group G standings, with a win and three points. Global currently slides to the bottom with one loss. Yet to see action in Group G are Bali United and Yangon United. The two sides kick off their 2018 AFC Cup campaigns against each other on Wednesday, February 13th. Global on the other hand, will get the chance to bounce back later this month when they host Bali United at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium in Tuesday, February 27th. The other Pinoy club in the tournament, inaugural PFL champions Ceres Negros FC, begin their 2018 AFC Cup campaign on Wednesday, February 13th as well when they take on Cambodian side Boeung Ket Angkor in Group F action at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Bacolod......»»

Ceres Negros FC bows out of AFC Champions League race after loss to Tianjin

It was the end of the line for Filipino club Ceres Negros FC after they fell to Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian, 2-0 in Tianjin, China to bow out of the 2018 AFC Champions League tournament. French striker Anthony Modeste proved to be the thorn on Ceres Negros’ side, scoring both goals for the home side. Modeste’s first strike came in at the 19th minute, scoring off a header from a well-timed corner kick. The second came at the 57th minute when he breezed through the Ceres defenses before beating keeper Toni Doblas once more for the 2-0 advantage. The visiting Pinoy side looked to rally back, but couldn’t find the same magic that brought them to the playoff round of the AFC Champions League. As a result, Tianjin Quanjian books their spot in the group stages of the tournament. It was a spirited run for the inaugural PFL champions, who looked to make Philippine football history by becoming the first club to qualify for the AFC Champions League. Ceres Negros opened their campaign by defeating Myanmar’s Shan United 4-3 on Penalties in Yangon in the first preliminary round before heading over to Australia and upsetting Brisbane Roar 3-2 in the second preliminary round......»»

Ceres Negros stuns Brisbane Roar to advance in AFC Champions league

  Filipino football club Ceres Negros FC went into enemy territory and came away victorious, taking down Brisbane Roar 3-2, Tuesday afternoon in Brisbane, Australia to advance into the playoff round of the 2018 AFC Champions League.  The two-time A-League champions got off to a hot start after Massimo Maccarone got the home team on the board in the 35th minute.  Spanish star striker Bienve Marañon came up big for the visiting UFL champions once again, as he hit the equalizer in the 43rd minute to keep Ceres in the match.  Marañon kept it going as he converted once more in the 65th minute to give the Pinoy side the advantage.    Omid Nazari put the match out of Brisbane's reach after scoring in the 75th minute to make it a 3-1 advantage for Ceres Negros.  Eric Bautheac pulled one back in the 86th minute to make it a 3-2 match, but that would be the last of it as Ceres Negros held on for what many consider to be a massive upset.  After wins over Shan United and Brisbane Roar, Ceres Negros will continue their AFC Champions League campaign into the playoff round, where they'll be taking on Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian at the Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium in Tianjin, China on January 30th.  The winner of that matchup will advance into the group stages.  No Filipino club has ever qualified for the annual tournament, which means Ceres Negros is one win away from making Filipino football history. .....»»
