PFL: Dynamic Herb Cebu survives Horikoshi brace, overcomes Kaya

Dynamic Herb Cebu kicked off the second half of the 2022-2023 Philippines Football league in stunning fashion with a pulsating 3-2 win over Kaya-Iloilo, Sunday, at the Iloilo City Sports Complex.

Daniel Gadia set the tone for the visitors when he broke the deadlock in the 24th minute. Kaya, though, found a way to retaliate when Daizo Horikoshi scored his first goal of the game in the 35th minute.

Come the second half, goals from Leaford Anthony Allen and Jacob Liao in the 50th and 55th minutes respectively sealed the win for Cebu. Meanwhile, Horikoshi secured his brace in the 60th minute.

The game was a heated affair as both squads had one player each sent off. Gadia and Simone Rota were ejected in the 45th minute after an altercation ensued between the two clubs following a hard foul from the former.

The result meant that Cebu inched closer to Kaya with 24 points behind seven wins, three draws, and one loss.

On the other hand, Kaya remained on top of the standings with 30 points after 10 wins and three losses.

Kaya XI: Balobo (GK), Tacusalme, Bedic (C), Angeles, Amita, Melliza, Casambre, Gayoso, Horikoshi, Rota, Menzi.

Cebu XI: Villanueva (GK), Moro, Gadia, Borlongan, Altinoz, Tasci, Allen, Corsame, Hama, Liao, Cordova.
