San Beda Wins Ang Liga Title As Arellano Walks Out

San Beda has won the 2014 Ang Liga preseason collegiate football league championship but in far from ideal circumstances in the title match against the Arellano Chiefs.

On Saturday in their home field the Red  Booters took the lead in the second minute with a header by Fil-Brit striker Connor Tacagni off a delivery by Jerome Marzan.

Or so they tell me. I came late, at around the 15th minute.

In the 31st minute Bedan Miguel Caindec converted off a breakaway to make it 2-0.

Arellano head coach Ravelo Saluria had seen enough, and instructed his team to take leave of the pitch. They never returned, and referee Aldous Mirafuentes II awarded the match, and the championship, to San Beda. continue reading here
