GlobalPort-PH stuns Argentine squad

/ 05:10 AM December 21, 2021

A well-knit GlobalPort-Philippine used an early lead to upset fancied team from Argentina, 10-9, in the Miguel Lorenzo Romero Cup recently in Calatagan, Batangas.

Playing on the field named after his son Miguel Lorenzo, sportsman Mikee Romero formed a 1-2 punch with veteran Anthony Garcia in scoring the team’s first win over a squad backstopped by well-decorated Argentine international players.


“It was unbelievable beating the Argentines,” said Romero, who scored a crucial goal late in the game that helped GlobalPort repel Argentina’s determined comeback. “We made a good start because of the team’s chemistry.”

Behind Garcia’s attacking, GlobalPort raced to a commanding 6-2 lead to the cheers of a small but highly appreciative crowd.


GlobalPort’s lead, however, dwindled after the half as the Argentineans intensified their attack to pull to within 9-8.

Anthony Garcia, though, sealed the win with his sixth goal with just two minutes left.
