PFL: Cinkir strikes anew as Cebu overcomes Maharlika to climb to second

Arda Cinkir extended his fine form in the 2022-2023 Philippines Football League by scoring the solitary goal in Dynamic Herb Cebu’s 1-0 win over Maharlika Manila, Tuesday, at the PFF National Training Center.

Cinkir gave Cebu the lead in the third minute with a fine finish from close range.

It was the 20-year-old forward’s seventh goal of the campaign, with five of them coming in the last two fixtures.

Come the second half, Cebu tried its best to increase its lead to no avail.

Marius Kore skied his attempt off a pass from Mert Altinoz while Cinkir had a sniff at goal outside the box which went wide.

Near the end of the match, Kore tried his luck with a free kick but he failed to hit the target as the ball went over the bar.

Ultimately, Cinkir’s goal was enough to win all three points.

The result means that Cebu climbs to second place in the standings with 14 points behind four wins, two draws, and one defeat.

In contrast, Maharlika is yet to tally a point after seven matches this season.

Cebu will return to action this Saturday against Mendiola 1991. That game will be played at the City of Imus Grandstand at 4:00 PM.
