MANILA, Philippines - Stallion FC leaned on the exploits of Nathan Alquiros to trip Team Socceroo, 4-0, and move to second spot in the United Football League Monday night at Rizal Memorial Stadium.
Alquiros fired a brace (28’, 38’) and helped set up Jordan Mintah (45+2’) and Ruben Doctora (58’) for their goals as Stallion improved to 24 points behind idle Ceres-La Salle’s leading 30.
The Stallion booters dislodged from No. 2 defending champion Global, which salvaged a 1-1 standoff with Pachanga Diliman in the other game.
Jason Dantes scored a late strike as Global averted disaster and got a point to hike their tally to 23.
Global virtually dominated the game, getting 56 percent of possession and having 23 attempts, seven of them on target, plus seven corners. But the “People’s Club” had to play catch up as it was Pachanga which made the most out of its opportunities and found the back of the net first.
