PHIL Younghusband struck eight minutes from time as Loyola Meralco slipped past Green Archers United, 3-2, last night to reclaim top spot in the United Football League.
The Sparks squandered a two-goal lead, before Younghusband delivered the game-winner to keep the Sparks unbeaten in their last eight matches.
It was Younghusband’s 13th goal of the season. More importantly, the Sparks passed Global in the standings by jacking up their tally to 25 points.
“We made it difficult on ourselves, but it was a challenge playing in this heat,” said Younghusband after the match that saw teams play in temperatures as high as 35 degrees Celsius.
Kaya stayed in third spot while dimming Air Force Phoenix’s title hopes with a 3-1 victory.
The Airmen drew first blood through Chieffy Caligdong, but Kaya rallied with goals from Eric Dagroh and Lexton Moy in the first half and Nicolas Bolzico in second half stoppage time.
The win puts Kaya level on points with Global, which has a better goal difference.
