MANILA—Marwin Angeles saved the best for last as Kaya Iloilo forced a 1-1 draw against PSM Makassar in their AFC Cup match at the Pakansari Stadium in Bogor on Tuesday.

Angeles equalized in stoppage time as Iloilo now holds the top spot after the first round in Group H.

Makassar looked to be on pace of taking the home win after a penalty from Eero Markkanen, the older brother of rising National Basketball Association star Lauri, in the 56th minute gave the club the lead.

However, Jovin Bedic found Angeles wide open in a free kick in the third minute of extension, and the latter slotted the ball in for the tie.

Both clubs are tied at five points after three games, but with Angeles' away goal, Iloilo owns the top spot ahead of their rematch on April 17 at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod.
