MANILA—Dynamic Herb-Cebu Football Club bucked the boisterous Ilonggo crowd at the Iloilo Sports Complex to pull off a 3-2 victory over Kaya Futbol Club-Iloilo on Sunday afternoon.

Daniel Gadia drew first blood for the Cebuanos with a 24th-minute conversion from a corner by Mert Altinöz. Kaya-Iloilo managed to tie the score 11 minutes later as Daizo Horikoshi send a looping ball over the wall defense and into the bottom left corner.

The Cebuanos regained the lead just before the halftime break with a conversion from Leaford Allen before they widened it to 3-1 early in the second half as Jacob Liao slotted in the free kick of Jeremiah Borlogan.

Kaya-Iloilo managed to trim the deficit to 2-3 at 60th minute on a close range conversion by Horikoshi. The Ilonggos had multiple opportunities to force a deadlock down the stretch but failed to had a decent connection.

The game dubbed as “Visayas Clasico” was also feisty as two Dynamic Herb players in Baris Tasci and Nicolas Ferrer Jr. and Kaya-Iloilo’s Fitch Arboleda were tagged with yellow card, while Kaya’s Simone Rota and Cebu’s Gadia were send off with reds.

With the victory, Dynamic Herb-Cebu increased its points to 24 points on seven wins, three draws, and a loss with two matches at hand, while Kaya-Iloilo remained on top with 30 points on 10 wins and three losses.
