Tan Holdings blanks Hana in MSL1
Tan Holdings blanked Hana, 11-2, in the 2023 Spring Marianas Soccer League 1 last Sunday at the NMI Soccer Training Center in Koblerville.
From the outset, it was clear Tan Holdings were in control of the game. Their passing was crisp and accurate, and their offense worked together seamlessly for multiple scoring opportunities.
It didn’t take long for the first goal to come in the fourth minute from the cleats of Anthony Bergancia. From there, the floodgates opened, with Tan Holdings scoring goal after goal in quick succession.
Hana, to their credit, tried their hardest to make a comeback, but they were simply no match to Tan Holdings’ defenses.
As the game progressed, Tan Holdings’ Isiah Barcinas and Heman Addy completed a hat-trick each, Mark Patubo scored two, and Monico Claridades contributed one goal.
By the time the final whistle blew, the scoreboard read 11-0 with Hana unable to put a goal through Tan Holdings’ goal.
