THE Azkals Development Team played inspired football in the second half to end its Philippines Football League stint with a 2-0 victory over Stallion-Laguna FC yesterday at the PFF National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.
After a goalless first half, Yrick Gallantes opened the scoring in the 52nd minute while Jarvey Gayoso also found the back of the net nine minutes later to seal the deal for ADT.
Gayoso netted his fourth goal of the tournament presented by Qatar Airways and sanctioned by the Games and Amusements Board.
Learning the lessons of its back-to-back 0-1 setbacks in the bubble, ADT found its rhythm by winning three straight matches to finish the season with nine points.
ADT’s final standing will depend on the result between second-running Kaya-Iloilo FC and newly-crowned PFL champion United City FC which is being played as of presstime.
Kaya-Iloilo, which is coming off consecutive draws that cost the club the title, has eight points.
Stallion-Laguna, which will face Mendiola FC in a showdown of last placed teams in the final matchday of the season on Thursday, remains at one point.
