AFC Cup

Roberts, Osei score doubles as Kaya trashes ASEAN champ Home United


Kaya Football Club-Iloilo may have been on unfamiliar soil, but they still gave 2018 AFC Cup Southeast Asian Zonal Champions Home United a painful afternoon.

The 2018 Copa Paulino Alcantara winners prevailed 5-0 against Home United, Wednesday afternoon at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City.

It was the first win for Kaya in the 2019 AFC Cup, and it heightened their standing in Group H to 4 points. Meanwhile, Home United still has one point after two matches.

Noel Marcaida’s men had a dream start to the contest when Darryl Roberts found the back of the net after just two minutes of play. The Trinidadian forward took advantage of a mishap by Home United goalie Haikal Hasnol and headed the ball into the goal from a corner kick.

Roberts’ goal opened the floodgates for the Iloilo-based club, as they managed to score two more times in the first half. Skipper Jovin Bedic cut inside from the left flank and unleashed a powerful shot past Hasnol in the 34th minute, while Roberts clinched his second goal four minutes later from close range.

Home United’s defense was all over the place in the first half, and showed no visible improvement after the halftime break. Alfred Osei joined the fun with two goals in the 49th and 56th minutes.

The game may not have been held at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila nor at the club’s home ground, Iloilo Sports Complex, but Kaya have shown that they can make Panaad their adopted home.

Kaya shall next play against Indonesian club PSM Makassar at the Pakansari Stadium in West Java, Indonesia, on April 4, 2019, 4:00 PM.


Kaya XI: Casas (GK), Matas, Omura, Tacusalme, Soriano, Osei, Angeles, Tacagni, Roberts, Bedic (C), Mintah.
