DYNAMIC Herb Cebu FC dispatched Manila Digger FC, 4-1, to move closer in securing a place in the knockout stage of the Copa Paulino Alcantara Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Arda Cinkir, Rintaro Hama, King Miyagi and Goktug Demiroglu entered the scoresheet as the Gentle Giants collected their second win in Group B.

Cebu now has six points, one off Maharlika Manila FC, which defeated University of the Philippines, 1-0. The second-running Gentle Giants, who beat the Fighting Maroons in their Cebu opener, have two matches left.

Ibrahima Ndour scored deep in stoppage time as Maharlika rose to seven points in the table.

UP, which is now level with Cebu but is trailing in goal difference, hopes that results will go its way to advance to the next round as one of the two best third placed teams.

Manila Digger, whose consolation goal came from Kobe Stuart, remained at the bottom of the Group B table with only a point to show and formally bowed out of contention with the loss.
