In an unusual yet unfortunate circumstance, Global Cebu’s goalkeeper Jun Badelic cannot suit up for the squad due to injury. Without a legitimate back up keeper, JPV Marikina unleashed a barrage of goals for an 11-1 mauling in their Philippines Football League clash on Wednesday, August 1, in the PFF Artificial Turf Pitch in San Lazaro Carmona, Cavite.
With no other options left, Global defender Darryl Regala was the one who stood up between the sticks.

Initially, the game unfolded normally in the early proceedings. JPV were handed an opportunity after being awarded a penalty kick in the 21st minute which Keigo Moriyasu coolly converted.
After the icebreaker, was when the anomalous raining of goals became exposed as within the next two minutes, the Marikina side were able to notch up the same number of goals through Alen Angeles and J. Baguioro.
Come halftime, JPV were up by six goals to nil as, Jay-R Sandoval, John Celiz and Angeles added to more in the 30th, 39th and 45th minutes respectively.
In the second half, Baguioro scored twice more in the 58th and 79th minutes, Aaron Altiche notched in at the 75th, and Moriyasu found the back of the net in the 64th and 82nd minutes to complete a full-on rout of Global.
The 11-1 result stands as the highest goals scored by a team and the biggest margin of victory between two opposing sides in PFL history.
This occurrence of a lopsided result when Global had a substitute goalkeeper availability issue is not the first time. Last August 2017, in a PFL match, curiously also against JPV Marikina, main goalkeeper Patrick Deyto accumulated two yellow cards, putting him out of the game. Without a substitute goalie, striker Misagh Bahadoran suited up as the sentry.
The unfamiliarity and inexperience of Bahadoran in playing the role at the top level eventually ended with JPV as dominant victors in a 5-2 result.
