Kanoa-2 edged out Paire FC, 8-6, to top Division A. Irish Pagarao scored four goals, while Britanny Wally, Gillian Villlagomez, Krizel Tuazon, and Janelle Chognaki added one goal apiece for Kanoa-2, which finished the regular season with a 7-1-0 win-draw-loss record.

Paire, which settled for second place with its 6-1-1 mark, drew three goals from Guine Borja and one each from Jerlyn Castillo, Bernadette Horey, and Lyka Sally.

In the other Division A game, Shirley’s FC nipped the U16 Developmental Team, 2-1. Marielle Gariguez and Diana Maniacop knocked in the pair of goals for Shirley’s, while Therize Millare handed the U16 team its lone goal in the match.

Shirley’s finished the regular season at fourth place with its 2-0-6 slate, while the U16 squad was ranked last after holding a 1-0-7 mark. Kanoa-1 completed the team standings and had a third-best 3-0-5 card.
