Manila Jeepney FC clinched their first win of the United Football League 2015 season after trouncing Team Socceroo FC, 3-1, at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Saturday.
The Manileños overcame an uneventful opening half to surge after the halftime break as Alvaro Alonso and Jake Morallo posted back-to-back goals in the 53rd and 54th minutes, respectively.
Substitute Gary Epesso, who came in for goalscorer Alonso in the 61st minute, added another tally to his team’s mark in the 82nd minute.
On the other end, Beleu Cleopas refused to end the game without etching his name on the scoreboard as he notched the only goal of Team Socceroo in the match.
Meanwhile, Pachanga Diliman FC is scheduled to face winless Philippine Army FC for the first game of the UFL Sunday double-header at 5:15 p.m. followed by the anticipated meeting between Loyola Meralco Sparks FC and Kaya FC at 8:15 p.m.
