Clark powers Kaya in win versus Global
MANILA, Philippines - Kaya FC stormed past Global FC, 2-0, following a two-goal performance by Louis Clark to remain unbeaten in four games in the United Football League.
After a slow first half, Kaya turned on their afterburners to get past the pesky Global FC during the last match of Saturday’s UFL triple-header at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.
The Kaya faithful were given a fright during the early minutes of the opening half after Izo Elhabib pounced on the ball off a rebound to beat goalkeeper Nicholas O’Donnell but the goal was subsequently disallowed due to a foul.
To the dismay of Global, another goal conversion by Elhabib, this time in the 48th minute, was immediately scratched off due to an offside infraction.
Kaya’s frontline picked up their pace a few minutes into the second half resulting into the first goal of Clark in the 51st minute.
Global forced chances to try and equalize the tally but the solid defense of Kaya continued to deny their chances on their offensive end.
As stoppage period loomed for the bout between the two local football heavyweights, Kaya FC’s lead doubled as Clark completed a brace after breaking past his defenders to find the back of the net.
Meanwhile, newly crowned national club champs Loyola Meralco Sparks FC dominated the hapless Philippine Army FC, 7-0, while Pachanga Diliman FC and Team Socceroo FC drew at 1-1. - Rappler.com
