Global, Davao play to a draw in Laguna

By JP Abcede

MANILA--Global Cebu and Davao Aguilas ended up in a 2-2 deadlock in their 2018 Philippines Football League encounter on Sunday at the BiƱan Football Stadium in Laguna.

Philippines' golden boy, Phil Younghusband, resumed his goal-scoring ways with a hard strike from inside the box towards the left post at the 19th minute. This was followed by a Harry Sawyer header off a corner just before halftime.

Darryl Roberts managed to net one after miffing his penalty attempt earlier on the second half. A foul by Dennis Villanueva inside the box not only merited him a red card but also gave Wesley dos Santos the chance to tie the count with just a little over two minutes remaining in regulation.

Davao notched its fifth point in three matches, trailing table leaders Ceres and JPV Marikina by just a single point.

This is Global's first league point in three matches played to date.
