HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam - Myanmar and the Philippines maintained their fourth and third spots respectively in the AFC U-14 Girls Regional Championship for the ASEAN region as they drew 1-1 in their penultimate match and garnered 7 points each at Thong Nhat Stadium on Saturday.
Both scoreless in the first half played on a rainy and humid day, Myanmar skipper Khine Thazin Phoo scored the match’s opening match on 55 minutes.
But Filipina Itsuko Maree Cuizon Bacatan, who had scored four goals in two previous matches against Malaysia and Cambodia, came off the bench after 60 minutes and equalized the score seven minutes later.
I was stunned after tuning in an early morning news Friday seeing a man covered with towel on his face and identifying himself as boxer Mark Jason Melligen.
He was reportedly arrested in a drug buy-bust in Remedios Street, Mandaue City, Cebu. Cadiz City is beamed on Cebu City ABS-CBN Morning News. The news came out an hour away while waiting for National Basketball Association (NBA) Game 7 between Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs playing at Miami’s home court which they won, 95-88.
I immediately recorded the newscast and later texted Games and Amusement Board (GAB) Chairman Monju Guanzon if he already knew the report which he replied positively. I also followed up my text to him if what his official statement was regarding the case, but replied in the negative. Maybe, he is still waiting for the official report about the incident and many really would contact him to get his side as chairman of an agency that controlled or regulate boxing.
Off Guard will take up the National Basketball Association Game 7 for the time being, an opportunity we missed for years focusing more in the local sports scenes.
But with the Heat and Spurs of eagerness were focused between Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs, all our attention will be between these two "giant" basketball teams in the world this season.
"Talks about these two teams," now a by-word in all aspects of our everyday chores; be it in office or in the house. Even drivers may opt to stay for a while for about an hour or more with their eyes glued on the television sets and even in transistor radios. If we follow Philippine boxing icon Manny Pacquiao’s fights before which lasted less than an hour with a very remarkable zero crime incidents, today’s NBA Final Game 7 may be considered on the same mold. Hope there is no cause for alarm about a possible brownout during the "Live" match.
Take your pick: Miami Heat or San Antonio Spurs?
Police authorities expect today’s zero crime rates when National Basketball Association (NBA) Game 7 finals between Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will be shown live on television networks and the large screen in some coffee shops and restaurants of hotels.
Miami Heat, on the verge of losing the title in Game 6, rose from the grave with Ray Allen’s triple on an offensive rebound of Chris Bosh which he passed on to him in the right corner from their and heaved from beyond the arc despite the attempt of Spurs Tony Parker to block but went inside to forge an overtime after a 95-all deadlock, the eighth deadlock in the game.
In the overtime, Miami heat outscored San Antonio Spurs, 103-100 to force a winner-take-all Game 7 today.

The city of Bacolod and the province of Negros Occidental is likely to forge a strong tie for progress which is beneficial to all. It is a good move by Bacolod City mayor-elect Monico O. Puentevella to make an audience with re-elected Governor Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr., and proposed a good relation as both will really benefitted from it. As both promises to bring opportunities for Bacolod and the province to their constituents is laudable no one ever did before while both erected their structures or edifice as seat of their governance.
Both are not new to each other as members of the House of Congress and they have one in common. Four big projects for Bacolod which Puentevella suggested will also beneficial to the province. As I see it, Bacolod City and the Province of Negros Occidental would be a strong power in Sports in the country as both have one thing in common –the Love of Sports where Unity is one of its main thrust and concept. Thanks to former Philippine Sports Commission commissioner Eric Loretizo who may have a hand in such a wonderful and historic ties of the city and the province.
