The Palaweno football team “PNP XPandaBallz FC” of the Puerto Princesa Palawan Football Club became the champion in the Mixed Open Category in the Bong Tanco Football Cup held at the Ateneo De Manila, Quezon City last November 11. The team is composed of the Palawan police officers and several  athletes from different universities.

The team also won several awards other than the Mixed Open category like the 1st Place in the 35 Above category and 2nd Place in the 45 Above Category.

PO3 Crisanto Arellano cannot contain his happiness saying, “Masayang masaya kami dahil kaya pa pala naming makipag-compete lalo na sa edad namin na ito at nanalo pa ang aming club.” He also stated that they were quite confident that they will yield good and fair results in every category of the tournament.

The football team trained strenuously for almost two months in preparation for the tournament.

During the preparation, PO3 Arellano said that the biggest challenge for them was their club’s lack of funds. But they believe trusting each other and remaining optimistic through everything will be keys to their victory.

PO3 Arellano added, “Inaalay namin ang aming panalo sa aming pamilya at sa mga taong naniniwala at tumulong para maisakatuparan namin ang aming pangarap para sa mga kabataan ng Puerto Princesa at ng Palawan”. (Kenjie S. Lamo / PDN )
