Phil scores 8 goals in Loyola’s 33-0 win

The Loyola Meralco Sparks recorded what could be the most lopsided win in the young history of the United Football League (UFL) Cup after completing a 33-0 massacre of guest team Blue Guards FC Wednesday night at the Emperador Stadium in McKinley Hill.

In a fitting follow up to his six-goal performance in the team’s 9-0 win over Navy last Saturday, Phil Younghusband scored eight goals to spark the team’s onslaught.

Younghusband continued to dish our stellar performance despite his recent breakup with actress Angel Locsin.

In their win over Navy, Younghusband knocked in back-to-back goals inside two minutes.

Equally impressive were Chad Gould, who had seven, and Matt Hartmann, who hit the back of the net five times as the Sparks led 10-0 in the first 20 minutes, 15-0 at the half and 26-0 with 15 minutes before injury time.

While the victory kept Loyola in a tie for first place with Green Archers United in Group E with nine points each, it proved to be embarrassing defeat for Blue Guards, a club composed of several players with an age of at least 40 years old.

Blue Guards, one of three clubs invited to the UFL’s annual Cup competition, conceded 71 goals in all its matches.

Loyola’s victory bodes well to it crucial match with Green Archers next month with the winner taking the top spot in the group.
