Global earns first point

GLOBAL Cebu FC came from behind to force a 2-2 draw with Davao Aguilas FC last Sunday in a neutral venue at the Biñan Football Stadium in Laguna.

Phil Younghusband put the Aguilas in front in the 20th minute with a strike inside the box and Harrison Sawyer doubled it in the the 42nd minute with a header from a corner kick.

Darryl Roberts finally scored the opening goal for Global Cebu FC in the 66th minute.

Cebu got a huge break after a foul by former Global midfielder Dennis Villanueva. Villanueva was given a red card on that play.

Wesley Dos Santos took the penalty shot and converted it in the 88th minute to score a timely equalizer and salvaged a draw for its first point in the second PFL season.

Global Cebu FC is the runner-up of the inaugural season after losing to Ceres Negros FC but has been struggling this season. (EKA)
