CARMONA - The name and identity may change, but the domination remains the same.

With a match to spare, Bienvenido Marañon and the rest of United City Football Club claim their first PFL title after dominating Stallion Laguna 7-1 inside the PFF National Training Center to finish Match Day 4.

The Spanish striker came out alive in the second half, completing a hat-trick off from a Robert Lopez Mendy pass from the center to the right flank which went past Nelson Gasic's guard.

Marañon scored two goals earlier, one from a Hikaru Minegishi pass which made way to Mike Ott as a dummy before passing it to the goal scorer in the 58th minute, and another from Stephan Schrock by way of Minegishi to the six-yard box in the 66th minute.

OJ Porteria tallied another one as well, converting a short pass from Ott inside the penalty area which sends Gasic down.

Ott himself contributed to the scoresheet, with the opening goal coming from him just six minutes from kick-off, sending starting keeper Hayeson Pepito down to the ground, before Takashi Odawara scored in the 25th minute.

It was the Fil-German's moment in the second half from his own corner passing to his brother Manny, who kicked it in the post before recovering it in the 54th minute.

Ibrahima N'Dour denied Anthony Pinthus another clean sheet as he converted a pass from a Stallion defender into an open goal against a more relaxed UCFC defense.

Stallion Laguna will try to redeem themselves on Monday against the Azkals Development Team, while UCFC will finish the championship season against Kaya FC-Iloilo on the same day.
