KAYA FC-Iloilo sustained its winning run in the Philippines Football League on Saturday, defeating Stallion Laguna FC, 1-0, at the Aboitiz Pitch in Lipa, Batangas.

Jordan Mintah scored the lone goal of the match early in the contest which proved to be enough to stretch their winning streak to four.

Earlier in the day, Green Archers United FC got the better of Philippine Air Force FC, 4-1.

Missing the services of Marwin Angeles in the middle of the pitch, Kaya still managed to control the proceedings from the get-go of the physical match.

Kenshiro Daniels made his first start since returning to the club, proving a threatening option on the left flank. It was on his side where the opening goal came about.

Under pressure from Mr. Mintah, Stallion’s right back coughed up the ball, allowing the Ghanaian forward room to measure a lovely chip over the goalkeeper in the 17th minute.

Stallion had a chance to equalize shortly before the final whistle, but Ruben Doctora could only hit the crossbar with his header from a long throw.

The win improved Kaya to a record of 11-1-2 with 34 points, three points behind league-leader and defending champion Ceres-Negros FC (12-1-0).

Stallion (6-3-4), for its part, dropped to fourth place at 21 points.

Meanwhile, GAU swung back to winning with its victory over Air Force.

Floriano Pasilan (42’ and 54’) had a brace while Paulo Bugas (17’) and Tonaldo (44’) had a goal each to book the win over the Air Men, whose lone goal was care of Darl Poderoso (63’).

With the victory, GAU (6-4-5) went up to third in the standings with 22 points with Air Force (2-1-12) remaining at sixth place with seven points. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
