PFL Sunday: Kaya, Voltes defend home turf with contrasting wins
By Kevin Estrada
MANILA--Kaya Makati and JPV Marikina successfully defended their turf to cap off a clean sweep of home wins for the week in the PFL this season.
Kaya successfully defended UMak for the third time of asking with a 1-0 win over Stallion Laguna.
Marwin Angeles scored the lone strike in the 40th minute, and Noel Marcaida's men pushed the visitors further down the bottom of the PFL table despite having Miguel Tanton sent off in injury time for time wasting.
Kaya locked their hold at second after five matches, just two points behind leaders Meralco Manila before the league goes on the international break.
Meanwhile in Rizal Memorial, JPV Marikina needed a late charge in between the halves to post a 2-0 win over struggling Ilocos United.
David Basa got to the board first with a header in the second minute of first half stoppage time, then Koichi Belgira struck in the 65th minute to seal all three points and grab the third spot away from Global Cebu with nine points after five matches.
