By Ivan Saldajeno

CARMONA--Davao Aguilas solidified its hold of third place in the PFL league table after downing JPV Marikina, 3-0, at the PFF National Training Center on Wednesday.

In the match originally scheduled on Sunday but was reset to Wednesday due to stormy weather, Davao held off Marikina's early run and pounded its opponent the rest of the way to go four points clear of Laguna for the third spot.

Kim Sung-Min scored the lone goal of the first half in the 13th minute for Davao.

However, Phil Younghusband and Paolo Salenga sealed the win with goals in the 54th and the 63rd minutes respectively.

Davao is now on 28 points after 20 matches, four points ahead of Laguna in the table ahead of their showdown at the Binan Football Stadium in Binan on Saturday. Davao is now within five points of Iloilo for second place too.

Marikina remains in fifth place with 14 points after 19 games.
