Dorin, Gayoso strike vs Stallion as ADT end PFL campaign with nine points

CARMONA, CAVITE — The Azkals Development Team concluded its campaign in the PFL Season sponsored by Qatar Airways with a 2-0 victory over Stallion Laguna, Monday at the PFF National Training Center. 

This is the third straight win for the ADT in the tournament. They now have a temporary hold of second place with 9 points after five games.

Whether or not they finish in that spot depends on the match between United City versus Kaya-Iloilo later in the evening.

“When you’re coaching a young team, there’s going to be inconsistency,” said ADT coach Scott Cooper. “I think we can say (the result) was a professional job done by a group of inexperienced professional players.”

Following a goalless first half, ADT fired two goals in a span of just ten minutes to seize control of the match. Both strikes came off errors from the Stallion defense, which Cooper’s men took full advantage of.

Stallion tried to play out from the back, but they lost the ball just outside their box. That allowed substitute Carlo Dorin to rebound Yrik Gallantes’ initial shot in the 52nd minute, breaking the deadlock for the ADT.

Gallantes then played another key role for the ADT’s second goal of the contest when he was fouled in the Stallion Laguna box. Striker Jarvey Gayoso then stepped up to convert the spot-kick and tally his fourth goal of the tournament in the 62nd minute.

“ADT played well,” admitted Stallion coach Ernie Nierras. “We played well in the first half, but obviously we were outplayed in the second half. That’s something to improve on next season.”

Stallion shall end its campaign against Mendiola 1991 at 9:00 AM on Thursday.

Stallion Laguna XI: Gasic (GK), Nierras, Villareal, Alquiros, Sendra, Doctora, Melliza, N’Dour, Regala, Belgira, Arboleda.
