Judy Ann Santos, Gladys Reyes reunite in sons’ soccer tournament
Veteran actresses Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes took fans down memory lane when the two reunited in their sons’ soccer tournament at McKinley Hill Stadium recently. The two have remained close friends through the years, first meeting on the set of the TV drama series “Mara Clara” in 1992, in which Reyes played the role of Clara and Santos as Mara.
But it was not just Santos who Reyes bumped into. Actress Camille Prats, who starred in “Sarah… Ang Munting Prinsesa” in 1995, also dropped by the tournament and took a selfie with Reyes who, in turn, shared these chance meetings via Instagram on March 10.
“Supportive soccer mommies! #maraclaraandprincesssara,” quipped Reyes.
Reyes also shared photos and video clips of son Gian Christopher huddled together with his team from Bannister Academy.
“Earlier…,” she wrote on March 10. “All support on kuya Christophe’s @christophedoesvlogs and the rest of Bannister Football Varsity Team’s first tournament.”
She, too, was matchy-matchy with only daughter Aquisha as they supported Christophe from the bleachers.
“Twinning sports attire with my Aquisha,” she said.
Meanwhile, proud dad Ryan Agoncillo wrote a heartwarming message for son Lucho on Instagram to mark his team Bohemian Sporting Club’s triumph.
As per Agoncillo, Lucho’s team two weeks ago lost the first-place medal to their rivals. They were able to bounce back and redeem themselves, however, going on to win the opener and eventually defeat the team that took the gold medal from them.

2 weeks ago, after going the whole month of the tournament with your Bohemians undefeated, I saw you disappointedly looking on as the 1st place medal went to your rivals. The final score, 1-0. I understood that it was very tough, we mostly stayed silent and just smiled at each other on the way home. What makes me proud, is not the fact that, you took it on the chin and went straight back to practice. What makes me proud, is not the fact that, you knew there were more talented boys in your team and the only way you could help them was to play harder. What makes me proud, is not the fact that, the night before the second leg of the games, you said ‘Dad I’m gonna wear long sleeves, because it will get rough out there’. What makes me proud, is not the fact that, you listened intently to your coaches’ instructions. What makes me proud, is not the fact that your team won the opener, 9-nil. What makes me proud, is not the fact that, you said ‘Dad I didn’t celebrate my first goal, because the keeper of the other team is my friend’. What makes me proud, is not the fact that, you took back your only loss, and defeated the team that took the gold medal from you, 8-0. What makes me proud, is the fact that, through this all, you always remained a sport, and a gentleman. #storiesforlucho
