StiflerPH completed its triumphant Urban Football Challenge debut by winning the Primera Division Cup championship Saturday at the McKinley Hill Stadium.
Composed of former San Beda student-athletes, StiflerPH FC had impressive run in the final two days with seven wins and a draw to emerge victorious in the Saturdays-only tournament.
StiflerPH FC won three individual awards courtesy of MVP Mike Daniel Riconalla, Best Female Player Kristine Vinzon and Best Goalkeeper Kevin Riconalla.
"First tournament, first trophy. Without hard work this would not be possible," said Vinzon.
A first-time participant, StiflerPH FC became the Cinderella story of the tournament after claiming the top of the Primera Division table at the end of the double-round robin on top of the table with seven wins, two losses and a draw for a total of 22 points.
Aside from StiflerPH FC, Twister United, Ilonggo United, Alegria FC and Red Card FC also competed in the Primera Division Cup of the four-day tournament organized by Urban Football Philippines.
The tournament also featured six teams in the Primera Cup Plate section and a combined 12 teams in the Segunda Cup and Plate divisions.
