At first it was MPU who drew first blood as Moshe Sikkel took advantage of the unprepared KNFC slipping away with the goal in the very first minute of the match 1-0.

However MPU’s light was quickly taken out as KNFC returned even stronger than ever putting up a flurry of goals just minutes apart. Rooney Gil sparked the flames for THFC firing the quick shot at the 4th minute while Tyler Omelau, Taehun Han and Jolo Izeah contributed a total of four more goals under the 20 minute mark to improve their lead 5-0.

MPU tried to hold KNFC back but only for a brief moment before Kaleen Leemarvin squeezed in the 6th goal before ending the first half 6-1.

MPU failed to get out of the drought as they continued to struggle both offensively and defensively at the second half. KNFC brought in five more goals with Rigel Devey joining the scoreboard while Han completed a hat-trick ending the game with a dominant victory 11-1.

THFC shared a similar victory as they outscored Shirley’s Football Club 8-1.

THFC wide variety of offensive choices was their biggest asset as they were able to attack from all sides. Mark Costales opened up for the team connecting the shot at the 4th minute with Andrei Chavez following up four minutes later to gain the distance. It did not stop there as Morico Clarides found her rhythm draining two consecutive goals while Costales and Tamia Hix filled the last two goals.

Even in the midst of THFC’s scoring spree, SFC managed to sneak in one goal made by Jayvin Bisek before ending the first half. But that was the end as they were left silenced for the remainder of the game while THFC added two more goals by Jared Villagomez and Hix to secure the win 8-1.
