Dynamic scoring continued to rain at the goal in the following minutes with Ryan Lirio nailing his club’s fourth goal in the 20th minute as Ian Treyes scored in the 35th to close the half, 5-nil.

However, Silver Dragons FC’s Renz Guevarra succeeded in the 30th minute to cut the lead down to two goals.
But Fegidero sizzled as he scored two more goals in the 36th and 39th minutes to post a 5-1 advantage at the break.
