UFL: Global rips Pachanga
MANILA, Philippines — Global showed no mercy to Pachanga PLDT Home Fibr’s injury-laden roster as it came away with a 4-1 romp Thursday night to keep second spot in the United Football League at Emperador Stadium in Taguig.
Mark Hartmann struck twice while Misagh Bahadoran and Charles Pettys were also on the scoresheet as Global rolled to its fourth straight win that put the 2012 champions within three points off leader Loyola Meralco.
Kaya battled back from a goal down to keep Pasargad winless with a 3-1 triumph.
OJ Porteria continued his superb form with two goals in the second half, after Kenshiro Daniel canceled out an early Hamed Fateh strike.
The win jacked Global’s tally to 12 points, just three behind Loyola, after five matches played, with Kaya in third with 10 points.
