Tan Holdings FC notched its first win in the 2013 NMIFA Youth Fall League after shutting out Paire FC, 3-0, last Saturday at the Oleai Sports Complex Field.
Sean Perez made twin goals, while Dan Deric Ibarra added one to help Tan Holdings recover from a 0-5 debut loss to MP United in Week 2 of the fall league. Paire FC, on the other hand, absorbed its second defeat after a 2-6 beating from the undefeated MP United.
Perez drilled both goals in the first half, while Ibarra got his first in the second.
Paire FC 11, Shirley’s FC 0
In the first game in the boys U18 at the Oleai pitch, Paire also earned its first victory of the season after whipping Shirley’s FC last Friday.
Paire, which lost to MP United in the opening week, 0-6, dominated Shirley’s FC (0-2) after playing relentless offense in the second half. Paire was ahead by only three at the break when it netted eight more goals in the second to complete the lopsided win.
Paire got goals from seven different players with Saixian Bagsic having a hat-trick and Billy Hinson, Ivan Seo, and Joel Fruit nailing two apiece. Also scoring for Paire were Keeanu and Cole Chambers.
MP United FC 4, Matansa FC 1
MP United (2-0) took the solo lead in the division after downing the debuting Matansa.
Daniel Lim led MP United’s victory, as he scored three goals, while John Diego Masga drilled the other goal. Masga put MP United in the board early with his goal in the second minute, while Lim connected on his first two in the 21st and 36th minute before completing the hat-trick three minutes into the second half.
After a long silence, Matansa managed to light up the scoreboard, thanks to James Ermitanio, who scored seven minutes before the game ended.
Matansa 7, MP United 0
Over at the Hopwood Junior High School Field last Saturday, Matansa routed MP United on Court 2.
It was only Matansa’s first victory of the season, as it forfeited its opening game (due to lack of players) against Paire, while MP United dropped to a 0-2 record.
Lyka Sally was unstoppable in Matansa’s first win, as she logged three goals, her cousin Angelika Sally chipped in two. Lizann Deleon Guerrero also contributed two goals.
Meanwhile, in the other game in the girls U15 division, Shirley’s FC improved to a 2-0 slate after a victory via default against Paire (1-1).
