A mix of FF coaches and FF youth players represented Futbol Funatics in the Men’s Open of the PhilamLife 7’s League at Mckinley Hill Stadium, bagging their first win for the newly opened 2020 season. Their 3-1 win over H&J included goals from FF U19 youth players Justin Tan and Nathan Ongcarranceja, both of who have been with FF from the age of 5. Other homegrown talent who debuted on last night’s roster included U19 players Julien Raguin, Vitor Valdez and Deacon Eusebio, whose journey with Futbol Funatics also began at the ages of 4, 5 and 6 years old respectively. Last night’s performance showcased a fantastic combination of grit and determination from the youth coupled with experience and composure from their mentors playing alongside them. The result was a display of quality football illustrating beautiful combination passes, tight defense and superb shots. Also on last night’s roster were players from our former U19 youth squad namely Rhoy Magtalas, Reggie Sulit and Michael Dadula, who continue to hold their own in the 7’s Men’s League as they transition out of our youth program and into the adult divisions.
