However, at the start of the second half KNFC started to gain control as they picked up the pace on the offensive end.

KNFC held most of the possession attacking at every chance they saw fit but Matansa FC protected their territory well enough forcing them to take the shots from midfield unable to connect any goals.

After several trials and errors, KNFC’s efforts were finally awarded during crunch time with Merrick Toves and Ian Maniago slipping in a goal each at the 25th and 34th minute while leaving Matansa FC silent to escape with the win 2-0 keeping their record clean.

MP United Football Club still lingers behind at second place as they nipped the win over TanHoldings Football Club 3-1.

Rintaro stole the show as he carried MP United with all three goals scoring one at the first half and followed with two more at the second and held down Tan Holdings FC scoreless for the easy win 3-0.

Paire Football Club advanced one step above Shirley’s Football Club 5-1.

Paire FC gained the early advantage as Kaden Church fired two goals at the 11th and 24th minute to lead 2-0 by halftime.

Although Shirley’s FC’s Rakib Hassan answering back at the 16th mark, Paire FC retaliated even harder with three more goals by Church at the sixth, 19th and 25th mark to seal the deal 5-1.
