Hanley sizzles as 10-man Kaya drubs Pachanga

By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA--Tishan Hanley delivered the goods for Kaya as the club bucked the absence of star striker Louis Clark to wallop Pachanga, 4-1, in their UFL second round clash at the Rizal Memorial Stadium on Saturday night.

Clark headed for an early shower after incurring a second yellow card following an altercation with Davide Cortina, who also got carded in the incident. Clark got his first caution in the 28th minute after a hard foul on Jose Andoni Santos.

But Hanley led Kaya to the full three points after putting the team up for good just before halftime while extending the lead with his third goal in the 61st minute. Hanley made his first goal in the 14th minute before Hamed Mahdi equalized with a 39th minute penalty.

Christian Ayew scored the other Kaya goal in the 66th minute for the final score.

The win, its second straight, pushed Kaya to second place and within five points of Ceres in the championship race with five matches remaining in its schedule.
