PFL PHOTONearly untouchable all-season long, Ceres-Negros was made to sweat by a brave Green Archers side last Saturday night. But much like their campaign, the Busmen found a way to squeeze a victory just when their opponents thought they looked vulnerable.An early goal by the Green Archers hardly dented the belief of coach Risto Vidakovic’s side, which went on to prevail, 3-1, and clinch a third straight Philippines Football League crown with two games to spare at Aboitiz Field in Lipa.ADVERTISEMENT “I think the guys showed everyone that they are very professional,” said Vidakovic, who missed national team players Stephan Schrock, Mike Ott, Carlie De Murga and OJ Porteria.“They worked very hard during the whole year. We’ve already been working hard for nine months. But these last three games, we have to compete until the end.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LOOK: Taal Volcano island 2 days after eruption Taal Volcano eruption: House to develop rehab plan for Batangas, Cavite, Laguna Taal Volcano’s lava fountain weakens, but Phivolcs says it’s not sign of slowing down Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
