Home United zaps Kaya-Iloilo hopes

/ 05:25 AM May 16, 2019

Kaya-Iloilo conceded twice in the first 18 minutes as it fell to Home United of Singapore, 2-0, on Tuesday night that doomed its hopes of reaching the knockout phase of the AFC Cup at Jalan Besar Stadium.

The Filipino club was caught napping early with Adam Swandi’s volley putting the home side within 30 seconds before Abdil Qaiyyim directed Izzdin Shafiq’s free kick into the back of the net for the second goal.

Kaya had high hopes of making the next round as the best second-placed team, but it needed maximum points against Home United.

The result also meant that the only remaining Filipino club standing, Ceres-Negros, will face either Hanoi FC or Tampines Rovers of Singapore in the zonal semifinals. —CEDELF P. TUPAS
