By Ivan Saldajeno

LOS BAÑOS--Ceres-Negros completed a 2-0 sweep of its assignments in all competitions for the week after beating Global Cebu, 1-0, in the "Visayas Clasico" of the PFL at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod on Saturday night.

Jeffrey Christaens scored the lone goal of the match in the 83th minute off a cross as Negros survived another down-the-wire showdown three nights after eliminating JDT from the AFC Cup in a controversial cliffhanger win.

Negros scored its first PFL win and remained unbeaten after two matches at four points, currently sitting in fifth place with two matches at hand.

Cebu, on the other hand, dropped its first loss of the season and slipped to third place, trailing Makati, which is actually tied with the Cebu on points at seven, on goals scored.
