A winless draw after a 6-goal thriller between JPV Marikina and Davao Aguilas.
July 8, 2018
This controversial match ended 3-3 as both sides earn a point each after an intense match at San Lazaro Leisure Park, Carmona, Cavite, yesterday.
To add, the match was in a closed stadium meaning no fans were allowed to enter.
An exchange of quick counter-attacks for the first quarter of an hour into the game raised the intensity and pace of both teams’ performances.
Phil Younghusband broke the deadlock at 17 minutes as he slots one home at the bottom left corner of the goal.
Just a few minutes after, JPV were able to equalize with Baguioro scoring one back for his side at 20 minutes.
Davao then started to play as they are known under new coaches, Mel and Leigh. The passing was there. The attacks were lethal.
At 23 minutes, Davao was able to take the lead via Odawara’s goal as he nets one in against his old club.
But at 38 minutes, Shimono was able to equalize yet again for his side via a header from the cross of Angeles.
Just 5 minutes after, it was soon going to be half time and I’m sure Davao was caught off guard as Angeles scores their 3rd goal to take the lead in the game against Davao.
In the 2nd half, as both teams keep up the pressure, Sawyer was able to score an open goal as JPV’s keeper went out too early.
Not to mention, the other match that day was also a draw between Kaya FC-Iloilo and Ceres-Negros FC.
Davao now prepares to get that first win against the league leaders, Ceres Negros, as they host a home game at Davao just for the 2nd time this season.
Despite all the action in the game, especially the post of Omar, it was a solid match to watch nonetheless. It proved to be the final score as both teams get 3 goals and a point each.
Davao is now 9 points away from Kaya who are in 2nd place and 18 points behind Ceres, who are the top leaders.
The match is set to kick off at 4pm this Saturday, July 14. See you there!
