UFL Cup Finals 2011: It will be a face-off of many Azkals players, or members of the Philippine National Football Field for the United Football League or UFL Finals 2011.
The two teams that bested many other squads that will have to battle it out in the grass are the Loyola Meralco Sparks FC and the Air Force Phoenix FC.
Meralco for its part showed a superb spirit for coming up with a win despite the 3-0 deficit against Kaya-Cignal FC to the end the first half during their semi-finals match, but the Younghusband brothers and Mark Hartman made a great run during the second half to score 5 consecutive goals.
The game ended in a 5-4 scoreline with a very late goal from Nate Burkey.
On the other hand, Air Force and Global FC had a close match with no team scoring in the first half during their own semi-finals match. The match showed bad blood as these two teams were the very same teams that faced other last year for the finals. But the Air Force men proved better than their opponents as their veteran Barsales made a goal in the late part of the second half. The security goal was also made later by another Air Force man, all two goals made because of the lapses in defense of the defending champs.
Today, Saturday, December 10, Loyola and Air Force are going to see each other for the Finals.
Battle for third between Kaya FC and Global FC will start at 4PM while the finals between Loyola Meralco and Air Force will be at 7 PM.
The match is going to be aired live on AKTIV.
Will the Younghusbands and Hartmans win against Chieffy Caligdong and Ian Araneta? Make your gets now.
UPDATE: Philippine Airforce won 2-1 against the Meralco in what could be one of local football's best game in many years. Meralco lost luck and at the same time, PAF's great defense led them to a win, and of course the championship crown.
