Kaya-Iloilo overcame a gritty showing by debuting Maharlika-Manila to produce a 1-0 victory in Wednesday’s opener of the Philippines Football League at the PFF National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.

Jayson Panhay delivered the only goal in the 29th minute as Kaya got the maximum three points to join United City FC in the early lead after the first matchday of the shortened fourth season of the Qatar Airways-backed league.

Coach Yu Hoshide’s side dominated possession and had several opportunities to add to Kaya’s lead. But Maharlika kept a strong defensive stand throughout in order to keep the scoreline respectable.
