Park Kyul comes to Forza's rescue to split the pot between them and GAU in a battle of the Alabang clubs

MANILA-- Forza needed a last-gasp heroics from Park Kyul to share honors with Green Archers United as the UFL entered the homestretch early Sunday afternoon at the Rizal Memorial Stadium

The South Korean forward's short-ranged strike cancelled out Alvin Sarmiento's first-half opener just six minutes before full time to force both Alabang outfits to share honors once again this season in which they first split the points on Labor Day.

Despite lording the field with 58% of the possession, Dolfo Alicante's men could not take advantage of their superiority on paper on the field, in which they have less fouls but could not timed their runs right, as the flag went up nine times for offisde compared to none made by Arvin Soliman's men.

The former Loyola right-back capped off a solo run beating two Forza defenders and struck past Abu Ibrahim to give the more fancied Archers the lead seven minutes before halftime.

However, GAU could not sharpened its arrows to double their advantage at the restart, with several misses in front of the goalframe that made most of their seven shots that went off target.

Forza made the Archers pay for their inaccuracies in the 84th minute, as Alfonso Montelibano's run to the box found Park who made no mistake in firing past Henri Fong for the equalizer.
