By Ivan Saldajeno

BINAN--Kaya Iloilo sealed the top spot of Group B of the Copa Paulino Alcantara.

This despite a 1-1 draw against Stallion Laguna at the Binan Football Stadium on Wednesday night.

Jayson Panhay's 59th minute goal for Kaya Iloilo turned out to be the difference as the visiting squad sealed the number one spot in its group even if Stallion Laguna finally got to steal a point in their fifth head-to-head meeting this year.

Stallion Laguna's breakthrough came from Koichi Belgira, who scored a 73rd minute free kick from just outside the penalty box.

Kaya Iloilo owns the tiebreaker over Stallion Laguna on a better goal difference.

Kaya Iloilo will face the second seed in Group A in one semifinal, while Kaya Iloilo will take on the top seed of the said group in the other semifinal.

Ceres Negros looks to seal the top seed against Green Archers United on the road at the Aboitiz Pitch in Lipa, while the U22 Azkals and Mendiola are gunning for the last semifinal spot at the Binan Football Stadium later Wednesday.
