Matansa Football Club gained its first win of the season after whipping Shirley’s FC, 9-0, in the boys U15 division game in the 2015 NMIFA Youth Fall League last Saturday at the Oleai Sports Complex Field.
Matansa capitalized on the depleted Shirley’s FC crew to bag its first win in three games. Shirley’s, which suited up in last weekend’s opening tiff with only nine players, is still winless in four matches.
Jeremy Ngiraked had a hat-trick in Matansa’s rout of Shirley’s, scoring all his three goals in the second half. Jether Yobech and David Mafnas added one goal apiece in the final 45 minutes of the match. Yobech also drilled a goal in the first half, while Joshua Malig, Iverson Santos, and Ray Lieto were the other scorers for Matansa in the opening frame.
MP United 9, Kanoa 0
In the other boys U15 match at the Oleai pitch, MP United also clobbered Kanoa.
Sunjoon Tenorio knocked in three straight goals in the first half to lift MP United to a perfect 4-0-0 win-draw-loss record. He got one more goal in the second half, while Oliver Lee recorded a hat-trick in the final 45 minutes of the match. Joshua Abragan and Michael Lee registered the two other goals for MP United, which remains on top of the seven-team field.
Kanoa is in fifth place with its 1-0-3 record.
Tan Holdings-1 9, Tan Holdings-2 1,
Over at the Hopwood Junior High School Field, Tan Holdings-1 also kept its unbeaten mark (3-0-0) after whipping sister squad Tan Holdings-1.

Joshua Waldo registered the lone goal for Tan Holdings-2, which fell to fourth place behind idle Paire (2-0-1) with its 1-0-2 card.
Matansa 4, Paire 1
Still at the Hopwood pitch for the girls U15 action, Matansa reclaimed the top spot in the team standings after beating Paire.

Shirley’s 1, Tan Holdings 1

With the draw, Tan Holdings remained at third place in the team standings with its 2-1-1 slate.
MP United 2, Kanoa 0
MP United is closely behind Tan Holdings in the team rankings following a shutout win against Kanoa.
