Kaya down Global to maintain charge; big win for Loyola

Kaya continued their excellent start to the new United Football League campaign by recording a 2-0 triumph over defending champions Global on Saturday evening.

Following a goalless first half at the Rizal Memorial Stadium, Louis Clark broke the deadlock for Kaya six minutes into the second half, before adding another in the 90th minute to seal the victory for his side.

The result means Adam Reekie’s charges have won all four of their games so far this season, and have netted 12 goals without conceding a single one.

Despite the defeat, Global remain top of the table but are now just one point ahead of Kaya, having played two games more.

Meanwhile, Loyola Meralco Sparks are also just a solitary point off the pace after recording an emphatic 7-0 win over bottom side Philippine Army-GTI.

There was never any real doubt over the outcome of the bench after the Sparks raced to a four-goal lead by halftime, courtesy of a Graham Caygill brace and goals from James Younghusband and Simon Greatwich.

Younghusband then made it 5-0 six minutes into the second half, before Phil Younghusband and Lee Joo-young weighed in with further strikes to complete the rout for Loyola.

Saturday’s early game saw Pachanga Diliman and Team Socceroo pick up their first point of the season as both sides played out a 1-1 draw.

Lee Jeong-woo had fired Pachanga ahead eight minutes before the interval, only for Beleu Cleopas to equalise in the 57th minute and earn Socceroo a share of the spoils.
