ROSEVALE School Comets of Cagayan de Oro city Saturday, flexed their muscles to win two titles in 2nd Raging Bears FC Football tournament at the National Steel Corp. field in barangay Suarez, Iligan city Lanao del Norte.
The Comets opened this school year football festival season with a bang scoring contrasting victories in the 13 and Under and the 10 and Under divisions.

Led by the tournament MVP Lyle Dy and tournament Best Goalie Dave Mendoza, they rolled past Gov. Hermie team of Oroquieta City 4-1 in the quarterfinals and then whipped Tambo FC in the semis, 5-1, to arrange a title showdown with 15 IB team.
They then showed no mercy in the championship as they overrun the 15 IB team, 5-1, to run away their first trophy this school year.
