As soon as the ball dropped, MPU Blue went on the attack with great ball movements that allowed Quido Jambor to score at the 3rd minute mark.
MPU Blue’s Seo Yeom joined the onslaught just two minutes later and added another goal at the 15th minute mark to give his team a comfortable 3-0 advantage.
Shirley’s Branson Santos, however, scored at the 22nd minute mark to cut MPU Blue’s lead by halftime, 1-3.
Early in the second half, MPU unleashed two quick goals courtesy of Landon Jordan at the 23rd and 25th minute marks for a 5-1 spread.

MPU Pink vs Matansa
MPU Pink had a tougher match but still managed to outlast the Matansa Football Club, 2-1.
Both of MPU Pink’s goals were scored during the opening half. Theo Joab fired a quick shot to find the back of the net at the 6th minute mark while team mate Taiga Namai-Scoggins connected at the 18th minute mark for a 2-0 lead.
Although Matansa struggled to find their footing, they eventually built enough momentum in the second half with Anton Megino scoring a goal to cut the deficit, 1-2.
MPU Pink then focused on protecting their end of the field long enough to triumph, 2-1.
