CEBU, Philippines — Global Cebu FC climbed to No.2 in the Philippine Football League standing after holding off Davao Aguilas, 3-1, the other night at the Cebu City Sports Center.

After getting stuck at third spot, Global Cebu improved its standing with 33 points. This gave Global Cebu booters the momentum going into tomorrow’s matchup against league leader FC Meralco still at the CCSC.

 In front of 3, 650 football fans, the home team showed its might as they kept the new look Aguilas winless.

Wesley Dos Santos scored the first goal for Global Cebu FC in 24th leaving Davao's goal keeper Marko Trkulja frustrated.

After a 1-0 lead in the first half, Global Cebu FC continued to press on, adjusted their defensive stuff well especially with Amani Manuel Aguinaldo out on an injury.

Not even the presence of Azkals’ mainstay Phil and James Younghusband can stop Global Cebu’s momentum as Darryl Roberts sank their second goal in the 62nd while Paolo Bugas sealed the win with another goal in the 71st.
