Shirley’s Alyssa Borlongan scored at the 18th minute mark but MP United’s Fiona Regan delivered two minutes later for a 2-2 deadlock at halftime.
During the second half, the action started to slow down as both teams focused more on defense. Eventually, however, Shirley’s Borlongan managed to sneak in a quick shot to give her team the lead, 3-2.
MP United fought hard to even the score but to no avail.
