United Football League squad Stallion Giligan’s handed the Guam national men’s national football team its third defeat in the Philippines after notching a 3-1 victory in a friendly match Saturday night at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
After leading 1-0 at halftime courtesy of forward Jovanie Simpron’s goal, Stallion waxed hot in the second half sparked by goals from Lee Joo Young and Park Bo Bae to grab a comfortable 3-0 cushion.
Guam salvaged a goal late in the match, but it was not enough to overcome Stallions, which currently sits at the fourth place in the UFL Division One standings.
The loss caps the Matao’s week-long training tour in the country in preparation for the East Asian Football Championships in July.
Guam yielded all of its matches, losing to the Azkals last Tuesday, 3-0, and UFL title contenders Global, 5-3, last Thursday.
