Former national team standout Jason Sabio headed home the match-winner in the 75th minute as Ceres La Salle slipped past Manila Jeepney, 3-2, Wednesday night to reach the quarterfinals of the UFL Football Alliance League Cup at Emperador Stadium.

Sabio’s first goal for the Bacolod side couldn’t have come at a better time as Arnel Amita engineered a comeback from two goals down for Manila Jeepney after early goals from Kim Jin-ho and Adrian Gallardo looked to have wrapped up the win for Ceres.

Over at Rizal Memorial Stadium, Loyola Meralco rallied from two goals down to subdue Pachanga Diliman, 3-2, to also close in on a quarterfinal berth.
