Match Day 9 continues for this year’s edition of the Copa Paulino Alcantara held at the PFF National Training Center in the windy and hot sunny area of Carmona, Cavite. Veterans Stallions Laguna FC will take on Dynamic Herb Cebu FC who recently joined last year’s Copa. The third association football club to represent Cebu after Queen City United of the United Football League Div. 2, and Global Cebu FC.

They performed so well in last year’s Copa and this will be their first match of the tournament with new signings and a new gaffer from a partnership with Hatayspor FC. A football club based in Antioch in the Hatay province of Turkey who recently got promoted in Turkey’s Super Lig and champions of the 2019-20 TFF First League.

First chance for Stallions in the 7th minute of the 1st Half, no one was able to connect that cross making it 1 - nil however it was cleared out into the danger area on Cebu’s side. 6 minutes later, Kainoa Bailey with a long shot effort but was blocked by Ace Villanueva. In the 23rd Minute, Cebu had the possession, but was intercepted by Oscar Delgado as he fires away within the penalty line, but was blocked by Villanueva.

Penalty was given to Cebu FC in the 32nd Minute when Chima Uzoka attempts for the header inside the goal area but was pushed down by Kainoa Bailey. Uzoka takes the penalty, blocked by Pepito, and Uzoka surges forward for the second chance within close range hitting the back of the net making it 1 - nil in favor of the Cebuanos.

13 minutes had passed after the penalty from Uzoka, the Laguenos tried to create multiple chances while the Cebuanos tried to find and assess their areas to pass through Stallions’ back line. As the half time whistle blows, Cebu FC in full control with one goal via penalty in favor of Chima Uzoka.

A Yellow Card was given to Chima Uzoka in the 55th Minute when he tried to recover the ball at the sidelines, however he kicked it towards the Stallions’ bench. While in the 63rd Minute, a one-two pass from Tuazon to Peña as he fires outside the penalty area. Great shot, but was off target and a few inches away from the goal post.

3 minutes later as Stallions tried to go for another chance to equalize, Oscar Delgado with the cross to Griffin McDaniel unable to control the touch however, Yannick Tuazon recovers but was cleared away by Chima Uzoka. While Cebu FC on the counter attack, Roberto Corsame Jr. sprints to the ball followed by a long shot effort but was too wide on that shot to double the lead in the 2nd Half.

A minute later, it was Stallions’ turn and a great effort from Oscar Delgado as he attempts for a long range shot but the ball went too wide to the right, almost hitting the goal post. Roberto Corsame Jr., finally nails the second goal at stoppage time seconds before the 91st Minute, when Gadia sprints in the left flanks spotting him were 2 defenders until he founds Corsame inside the penalty area, then positions near within the line of the goal area. At close range, he nails the bottom right corner of the goal post.

As the full time whistle blows, a well deserved victory for the Cebuanos with 2 goals and grabbing the 3 points after a few tensions while Stallions on their first loss of the tournament, frustrated but hoping they will get back on track in their remaining matches next month. Next up, the Azkals Development Team against their other adversary during the PFL League 2 years ago, the Manileños of Maharlika Manila FC.
