PFL: Uzoka’s brace leads Cebu’s five-goal rout over Maharlika Manila


Chima Uzoka produced his second brace of the 2022-2023 Philippines Football League season as Dynamic Herb Cebu came back from a goal down to trump Maharlika Manila, 5-1, at the PFF National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.

The National University alumnus scored a header in the 26th minute and converted from close range in the 56th minute to give Cebu a two-goal cushion.

After Uzoka equalized in the first half, Arda Cinkir gave Cebu its first taste of the lead in the 30th minute when he headed in JB Borlongan’s cross.

Mert Altinoz and Marius Kore then capped everything off for Cebu with their respective clinical free kicks in the 63rd and 87th minutes.

Cebu’s five-goal rampage offset a shocking start for them as Maharlika Manila’s Jerold Facturanan broke the deadlock in the first minute of the game while he was unmarked in the opposition box.

The result allows Dynamic Herb Cebu to climb to third place with eight points on the back of two wins, two draws, and one loss.

On the other hand, Maharlika sits in seventh place and is yet to tally a point this season after suffering its sixth straight loss.
