Providing a teaser for their May 29 match-up for the LBC United Football League, Technica FC defeated Air Force Rider in the Smart National Club Championship NCR Qualifiers last May 20 at the University of Makati Football Stadium.
Three goals came from forward Izzo El-Habbib. His first two goals occured in the first half coming from magnificent passes from his teammates, while the third one was a 45-degree bicycle shot. Meanwhile, a penalty kick from Chieffy Caligdong in the dying minute of the first half gave Air Force their goal.
