MANILA--Despite an early surprise from Pachanga, Kaya kept its winning run with a 6-2 win in a UFL match Saturday night at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Jung Jun-Hyuk put Pachanga up seven minutes into the game, but Younousse Yaogo and O.J. Porteria each scored a goal in a five-minute span to put Kaya in the lead.

Lee Jeong-Woo equalized in the 29th minute, but braces from Louis Clark and Christian Ayew gave Kaya its sixth win in seven matches.

Kaya, which has won back-to-back games after a 1-2 loss to Ceres last week, remains in the lead of the team standings with 18 points and a plus-20 goal difference.
