ASIAN GAMES: Pinoy shooters ready to draw

PALEMBANG -- Will it finally be third time a charm for trap shooter Hagen Topacio when the 2018 Asian Games shooting championships fire off here Monday at the Jakabaring Sports City shooting range here? “The first time when I competed (in the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games) I was leading after four rounds then faded and in Incheon four years ago, I came down with dengue,” recalled Topacio of his forgettable outings in his previous appearances in the continental sports showcase. In his third outing, the shooter buckled down to serious training and trimmed down by at least 12 kilos to improve his balance and coordination. “I have been practicing three to four times a week and doing some serious weight training so I can shoot better,” Topacio, 28, bared. “Hopefully things will be a different this time.” Although wont to say it, the athlete is also seeking redemption after his bid to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games was crushed when the International Sports Shooting Federation decided to nullify the results of the 2015 Asian shooting championships held in Kuwait. Topacio shot a personal best score 122 in the meet to bag the silver medal and earn a ticket to the Rio Games, only to see his Olympic dream dashed when the ISSF voided the outcome after Kuwait barred the entry of an Israeli technical official from the competition in the violation of the world shooting body’s rules. He declined to discuss about his medal prospects, preferring to let his performance to do the talking here after the two-day event. Also seeing action on Monday are rifle shooters Jayson Valdez and Amparo Acuna, a 2017 Malaysia Southeast Asian Games bronze medalist, in the men’s and women’s air rifle events, respectively......»»

NCAA: San Beda looking to put speed bumps on streaking Lyceum for Tuesday tussle

It's the rematch everybody has been waiting for.  For the first time since that fateful champion-sealing victory by San Beda over Lyceum Nov. 16 last year, the Red Lions and Pirates will be facing each other on Tuesday. Since then, Lyceum had taken revenge in the PCCL championship game last February, but, it's still different if they had won in the NCAA. Still undefeated in the regular season since the start of Season 93, Lyceum is riding on a 25-game winning streak, and San Beda looks to do the improbable once again. What has changed since then? "They're more experienced right now. They already know, last year they already knew the system of Coach Topex. Right now they're just fluid, the system. They gained more experience in the D-League, they won a championship," San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez said after the game. Despite an 18-0 regular season, the team from Intramuros laid an egg in the Finals, as the Red Lions relied on the heroics of Robert Bolick and Finals MVP Donald Tankoua. The 21-time champions know it's a lot more different right now, but they hope to rely on that formula they used to topple their opponents.  "We found a way to beat them last year, so we'll try to find a way to beat them this year. It will be a difficult one, but we'll watch and we'll prepare for next game." Fernandez added that the depth of last year's runner-ups and their top-notch defense have gotten them an immaculate 7-0 record this season. Although the tactician is not guaranteeing anything with the results of the game, Fernandez uttered a promise that will leave viewers wanting for more. "It will be an exciting one, we'll just have to be ready. We have much respect for Lyceum, with coach Topex and his coaching staff. We just have to really prepare really well for them."  "Hopefully we can give them a really good fight, a good game, so that people may watch it and appreciate it. We're hoping in the end that San Beda end up on top. Hopefully, we'll find a way."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

PVL: Ang Benilde lalakas yan knowing coach Jerry -- Molde

Coming from a player molded into a star under the tutelage of seasoned coach Jerry Yee, University of the Philippines standout Isa Molde knows that College of St. Benilde will go a long way under his watch. The incoming fourth year Lady Maroon saw the familiar system of her former mentor Wednesday when UP faced Yee’s Lady Blazers in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Molde and the rest of the Lady Maroons crossed paths with Yee for the first time since the mentor stepped down from his position a year ago and was replaced by Kenyan coach Godfrey Okumu. UP emerged the victor in the meeting, 26-24, 27-25, 29-27, but not before a very tight battle. Experiencing firsthand the level of play displayed by CSB, Molde was convinced that the Lady Blazers are in good hands coming into the NCAA season.          “Happy ako for him kasi syempre may Benilde na siya and for sure Benilde lalakas ‘yan knowing coach Jerry,” said Molde, who played under Yee since her high school days with Hope Christian School and in her first two years with the Lady Maroons. CSB has been giving big teams especially UAAP squads in the tournament a hard time although still dropping those matches in the end. The Lady Blazers gave Far Eastern University a scare in five sets, Adamson in four and unbeaten University of Sto. Tomas in a challenging three-set duel.      But for Yee, he would rather see real results.  “Ayaw na natin ng morale victory you can look at it that way. Pero ‘yun nga working hard naman ‘yung girls so buti pinapahirapan namin sila pero yun nga morale victory pa rin yun eh. So they would have got a win pero wala e di na bale, go lang,” he said. Asked about his experience steering a team against his former players, Yee just took it professionally. “Okay lang, normal. Kumbaga players mo sila dati, friends pa rin naman tayo so wala lang,” said Yee.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
