UFL: Inspired Kaya clashes with Ceres-La Salle
MANILA, Philippines—Kaya seeks to sustain its fine form against fellow unbeaten side Ceres-La Salle Saturday night while Manila Jeepney and Pachanga Diliman hope to break into the win column in the United Football League at Rizal Memorial Stadium.
Riding high on its 2-0 conquest of defending champion Global last Saturday, Kaya tries to claim another big scalp in the 8:15 p.m. clash with Ceres.
Manila Jeepney and Pachanga square off in the 5:15 p.m. kickoff with both teams seeking to improve on their woeful start this season.
Jeepney dropped a 1-4 decision to Stallion last Tuesday, while Pachanga is coming off a 1-1 draw against Team Socceroo. The two teams only have a point to show from their first five matches.
The spotlight will be in the battle pitting two title contenders in Kaya against Ceres. Dynamic on attack and solid in defense, Kaya has been a revelation this season under coach Adam Reekie. British striker Louis Clark will be a marked man for Kaya after scoring twice against Global.
But Kaya still has plenty of weapons in the likes of OJ Porteria, Joshua Beloya and Chris Greatwich, whose stellar play at midfield has led to plenty of scoring chances.
