The first half started with Meralco clearly showing the more intent, as they dictated the proceedings and marauding Stallion’s half.
In just the 11th minute Meralco was awarded a penalty as Phil Younghusband was on the receiving end of an infraction in the box.
The host’s #10 duly took the spot kick that went into the net at the second time of trying as the initial attempt was adjudged by the referee to be retaken, making it 1-0.
