It was non-stop action from start to finish as KNFC never dialed down the tempo scoring four goals in the first half. Their scoring spree started off at the 13th minute by Rooney Gil but it was Paul Lizama that stole the spotlight as he completed a hat-trick connecting three consecutive shots at the 17th, 23rd and 33rd mark to put his team in control 4-0.

With KNFC’s constant pressure, SFC had no time to retaliate as they were forced to defend even throughout the second half of the game. KNFC’s skills outshined SFC as five more goals were added with Taehun Han joining the highlight completing a hat-trick of his own during the 45th, 50th and 57th minute while Lizama and Izeah Jolo added the finishing touches to secure the win over SFC 9-0.

TanHoldings Football Club also celebrated that day as they earned their very first win over MP United Football Club 5-3.

It was a fairly even match with both teams started off quickly. MPU’s William Lee was the first to draw blood firing a shot at the 8th minute to gain the lead. However THFC struck back just four minutes later thanks to Morico Clarides putting the game back at a deadlock of 1-1.

MPU were persistent as they opened up another shot made by Xavier Lee at the 18th mark but were met with the same results as Mark Costales answered back for THFC to keep the score even while Clarides give the team the extra cushion with his second goal nine minutes later before ending the first half 3-2.

Although Ian Song tried to keep MPU alive with a quick goal at the start of the second half, THFC’s Andrei Chavez retaliated five minutes after to hold control. MPU’s momentum died down after as they failed to get another shot it while Costales added the dagger at the 47th mark to secure the win 5-3.
