The Philippine Boys Under-16 were able to put up a fight in their JENESYS 2017 Under-16 Tournament in Miyazaki, Japan.
The Boys U16 team bowed down to Indonesia Under-16 in their opening match, 7-1, last 8 March 2018. Their second game was a 3-0 defeat to Cambodia Under-16 last 10 March to finish third in Group B.
The team claimed their only win of the tournament after beating Timor Leste Under-16, 5-3, last Sunday 11 March 2018 before losing their final match, 5-0 against the Miyazaki Selection Team.
“We thank the Philippine Boys Under-16 team that participated in the JENESYS 2017 Under-16 Tournament,” said PFF general secretary Atty. Edwin Gastanes. “Although it proved to be a challenging campaign for the team, the experience the various players have earned from the tournament will be valuable to them.”
