UST Tiger Jins beats NU in battle of contenders

Published

on

UST and Philippine team head coach Dindo Simpao heading into the season had nothing in mind but the championship. They wiped-out the taekwondo circuit during the preseason; including winning the gold during the Taekwondo Nationals. The Tiger Jins 5-2 win over the NU Jins was a statement win the team.

Previously winless UST finweight Rryel Ramirez finally secured a win for himself with an 11-8 win over Alfred Avila. The match was just a prelude of the things to come for the NU Bulldogs. Rhayzor Catris took a huge 14-3 lead against Diether Baylon in the opening round before hitting a well-timed head kick during the start of the 2nd round in winning the match 17-3 by point gap stoppage. Philippine team member Paul Romero continued the wave with a 10-6 win over Jefferson Piopongco. Momentum for the UST-side would momentarily stop when Aljon Ortonio defeated last year’s UAAP Featherweight Gold medalist Joaquin Mendoza 12-7 but Juan Miguel Ramos took back the momentum with a 6-3 win over Dave Cea. Arven Alcantara blasted rookie Aries Capispisan right from the get go en route to a 20-10 win. Cedrick Perez would outwork late-replacement Erickson Silvestre 5-1 to cap the UST dominance.
