Baclayon Bohol Basketball

Holy Spirit School Crusaders clobbered a strong SK All Stars of Taguihon, 73-62, in the first game of a twin bill exhibition matches which coincided with the celebration of the feast of their Patron, Sta. Cruz Exaltacion, Monday at the Taguihon hard court.

The Crusaders were never threatened by the much heftier and taller all star team as they showed what they can.

The all star team started hot and made a 6-0 run in the first few minutes as the visiting Crusaders could hardly find their range. Vincent Descallar, a native of Taguihon, led the attack of his team to counter an 8-0 blast to take the upper hand as the buzzer sounded ending the 1st canto, 21-16.

But as the game went through in the 2nd quarter, the All Stars employed a full court trapping defense which yielded positive for the home team to grab the lead by a solitary point at lemon time.

At this juncture both offense and defense of the visitors went anemic allowing their opponents to score without opposition. But their coach Rico Reyes yelling and reminding them from the sideline to strengthen their defense kept offense in motion.  

In the latter part of the 2nd canto saw the Crusader's "heart and soul, "Josh Dominise lying on the floor after he stepped on what of the feet of the opponents in the battle of rebounds. The former UPHR Daltas was sidelined for the rest of the game.

In the 3rd period that ensued, the Crusaders patiently did their patented zone man defense with Vincent Descallar collaring the rebounds and point guard Paul Visarra dictating the tempo of the game which gave them back the driver's seat, 51-40.

And from there the Crusaders never looked back as their prize catch Vincent Descallar waxed hot firing his arsenals from all angles of the court aside from lording over the opponents in the rebounds.

The Crusaders continued to dribble away all those precious minutes until it expires with the final score 73-62.

The 2nd game saw the Taguihon Senior team vowing to D Farm team of Sierra Bullones, 82-86.

The stellar games were made possible through the efforts of Punong Barangay Ma. Vida Batoy Taguihon Barangay Council, SK Chairman Cristy Descallar and Commissioner Marcelo B. Templa.

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
  As such, Aumentado had explained, Congress might not be able to approve on time the calendar year 2010 General Appropriations Act (GAA), giving the country no other choice but to operate on a reenacted budget.
  A reenacted budget would jeopardize the airport project, the governor pointed out, because the 2009 budget carries only P307.5 million for the airport. The balance of the amount that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo earlier approved for DOTC to come up with stands at P690,971,398 for a total allocation needed of P998,471,398.

Bohol Tourist Spots - Bohol Attractions

Heading east from Tagbilaran along the south coast takes you first to the coastal fishing town of BOOL , 5km away. Said to be the oldest settlement on the island, it's also the site of the  Blood Compact Site, marked by an attractive bronze sculpture on the seafront. This is the spot where local chieftain Rajah Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi concluded an early round of Philippine–Spanish hostili-ties in 1565 by signing a compact in blood. Every year for one week in July, Boholanos gather in Bool for the  Sandugo  (One Blood)  festival  which, apart from the usual beauty pageants and roast pigs, includes a passionate re-enactment of the blood ceremony.
About 2km east of Bool, BACLAYON  is the site of  Baclayon Church, the oldest stone church in the Philippines. Much of the existing facade was added by the Augustinian Recollects in the nineteenth century, but the rest dates back to 1595 and was declared a national historical landmark in 1995. The church's convent has been t…
