Kaya held by Mendiola

Kaya-Iloilo FC and Mendiola FC shared the spoils in the early kickoff of the day’s triple-header in the 2020 Philippines Football League brought to you by Qatar Airways, ending the game scoreless.

The Mighty controlled the majority of the match, Arnel Amita and Jovin Bedic being firecrackers down the flank and Trinidadian center-back Carlyle Mitchell pulling strings well from the middle. However, a heroic performance from Braves netminder Kenry Balobo and an imperious performance by Souleyman Ndepe in marshalling the Mendiola backline kept the title-chasing Kaya off the scoresheet for the full 90 minutes, and even threatened in the dying embers of the game breaking from a Kaya corner; the counter being wasted by a heavy-handed pass by Hamed Hajimehdi that saw the break peter out.
