LEAGUE leader Hooligans Football Club escaped past Kilusang Magkaibigan Multi-Purpose Cooperative (KMMPC), 5-4, in the resumption of the Philippine Sports Commission-Davao Football Association (PSC-DFA) Challenge Cup 2014 Sunday at the Tionko field.

Both teams were tied at 4-all when KMMPC defender Richard Mortillero, who was chasing a Hooligans attacker, accidentally kicked the ball to his own goal.

Columbia FC also improved its record by thrashing Philippine College of Technology (PCT)-Medvil, 3-0.

PCT-Medvil playing-coach Ramonito "Lalas" Carreon, in text messages to Sun.Star Davao yesterday, said, "It was the team's worst performance in four games. In past games, we lost but we gave a good fight unlike yesterday, all of us were off."

Hooligans stayed on top of the team standings with a clean three-win, zero-draw, zero-loss card while Columbia retained its second position with a 2-0-1 mark followed by 1-0-3 PCT-Medvil and 0-0-3 KMMPC.

Games will resume on Sunday in the bootfest that serves as qualifying for the Davao Region Smart Interclub set sometime in August. (MLSA)
