MANILA, Philippines - Ceres-La Salle FC racked up a commanding 4-0 score against Pachanga-Diliman FC to bring home their first win in the United Football League FA League Cup at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Saturday, September 20.
To officially start their campaign as a full-pledged division 1 team in the country’s premier league, Ceres-La Salle FC went on the attack to show off their football quality, sending attack after attack deep into the Pachanga-Diliman FC territory.
On the other side, Pachanga FC was brewing an attack of their own but their several outbursts were foiled by the active defense of Ceres FC.
Meanwhile, after knocking on the door of Pachanga for numerous occasions in the dying minutes of the first half, Ceres finally broke the silence and scored two consecutive goals courtesy of Orman Okunaiya in the 38th minute and Adrian Gallardo on the 39th. Ceres led Pachanga going into the half, 2-0.
A rejuvenated Pachanga FC defense entered the pitch for the second half preventing a few more attacks by their opponents but it did not last long before another score was tallied for Ceres as Gallardo struck his second to extend his team’s lead to 3-0.
The game encountered technical difficulties in the final minutes of the second half as the main stadium lights went off due to a power interruption but match officials, with the consent of the opposing teams, chose to continue on with the game with only the lights from the grandstand illuminating the pitch.
As the game progressed, a late game goal in stoppage time was punched through goalkeeper Ace Villanueva by Patrick Reichelt to seal the first win of Ceres FC this season.

Stallion FC also notched a first game day win against Army FC following the lone goal scored by Fitch Arboleda in the 20th minute while Manila Jeepney FC and Green Archers United FC bout ended in a 2-2 draw. - 

AFF FUTSAL: Thais reel in 16 goals

SHAH ALAM (20 Sept 2014) – Defending champions Thailand and Australia, runners-up in the last AFF Futsal Championship, proved they were the teams for all to look out for after both recorded convincing opening victories this morning. Thailand out-played the Philippines 16-1 while Australia whipped Timor Leste 9-0 at the Malawati Stadium here on the second day of the AFF Futsal Championship.
JetsadaChudech emerged the topscorer today with four goals while WanlopPansomsua blasted a hattrick in Thailand’s lop-sided win. Australia’s Jordan Aaron Guerreiro struck the first hattrick of the tournament in the earlier match against Timor Leste.
Thailand, the favourites to win here despite missing several key players that featured in the World Cup Futsal, stormed to a 7-1 lead at the halftime. They struck four goals in the first ten minutes through PiyapanRatana (2nd), AtiratSittisak (3rd), KittipongSonsuwan (5th) and WanlopPansomsua (7th).
The Thais added three more from Atirat (11th), JetsadaChudech (19th) and SorsakPoonjangreed (20th) before heading to the locker rooms. The Philippines squeezed one in through Robert OmbleroCaneda in the seventh minute.
When the second half started, it was obvious that Thailand were not satisfied with the comfortable first-half lead and wanted much more. By the end of the next 20 minutes, Thailand reeled in another nine goals. The Philippines tried their best but the Thais were simply too good today.
The second half goals were netted by Wanlop( 24th, 26th), Jetsada (29th, 38th, 40th), Konghla Lakka (30th), Sorasak (34th), KawinWiboonratchakit (37th) and PinayatNusaya (38th).
The victory was Thailand’s first in Group B while it was the Philippines first loss after they shared points with Laos yesterday.

Muzangs draw with Laos in AFF Futsal Championship

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine national futsal team held Laos to a 4-4 draw to kick-off their crusade in the 2014 Asean Football Federation (AFF) Futsal Championship in Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam, Malaysia on Friday, September 19.
The Filipinos went on the offensive from the start of the opening half as Michael Reyes scored first blood four minutes into the game to take the lead for the Philippines.
A few minutes after, Vilakone Vannavong managed to hit an equalizer to tie the game at 1-1 in the 6th minute.
In the 12th minute, a counter attack from the Muzangs exposed a flaw in the defense of Laos giving Patrick Bocobo space to stike and notch the second goal of for the Philippines.
Meanwhile, the booters from Laos answered with two consecutive shots that found the back of the net courtesy of Soulichanh Phasawaeng and Panida Sinthapaseuth. Laos took the lead, 3-2.
As the hasty game continued, a counter attack from the Philippine side resulted in a goal, this time by team captain Floriano Pasilan but Laos did not back down as Soulichanh struck another ball to take the edge for his home squad.
Consequently, a penalty kick was awarded to the Muzangs in the dying minutes of the game. Jake Morallo converted it into a point and tied the game at 4-4 to prevent their foes from bringing home a win.
“We had so many chances that were actually harder to miss than to score. Unfortunately, we were not able to convert and had to settle for a draw. The goals we let in were giveaways from minor lapses in judgment. We dominated the whole time. That win slipped from our grasps,” head coach Red Avelino said in an interview with Rappler.
The teams of Laos and the Philippines are housed in Group B, the group that also features Asian powerhouse futsal teams Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar.
Avelino stressed that their two next games will be hard fought as they are scheduled to play against Thailand and Vietnam.
“The next two games are actually the toughest. Its both fortunate and unfortunate to play a team like Thailand and Vietnam. [It’s] unfortunate because we happen to be grouped with the top 2 teams of the tournament and fortunate because we get the chance to play teams of their caliber. We have so much to learn from the experience alone.”
“How do we plan to play them? Same way we always do, we play our best and play with full hearts,” Avelino said.
The Muzangs will continue on their journey at the AFF futsal championship with a game against top seed Thailand on Saturday, September 20 still at the Malawati Stadium in Malaysia. - Rappler.com
