CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Cebu Football Club (CFC) Gentle Giants are virtually unstoppable in the Philippines Football League (PFL) after stretching their winning streak to seven matches.

This was after the Gentle Giants pulverized one of PFL’s newcomers, the Manila Montet FC, 7-0, on Sunday, June 23, at their home pitch, the Dynamic Herb Borromeo Football Stadium along the Cebu South Coastal Road.

True to their confidence, CFC fielded mostly second-stringers in their win over Manila Montet FC. They now have 30 points from 10 wins and one loss, behind league-leader Kaya FC Iloilo.
