In a game which saw both sides struggle to create any real clear-cut chances, the tie was decided right on the half-hour mark when Yves Ashime sent the ball into his own net, handing the Nomads all three points.

The result was enough to see the Manila-based side move top of their group, ahead of Loyola Meralco Sparks on goal difference having played a game more.

Over in Group D, Stallion picked up their first win of the campaign with a comfortable 6-0 thumping of Sta. Lucia Mustangs.

Stallion raced to a three-goal lead inside the opening 35 minutes courtesy of a hat-trick from Rufino Sanchez, who added a fourth shortly before the break.

The Spanish striker then grabbed his fifth of the game, before South Korean defender Yong Jae-pi got in on the act in the 85th minute to round off a dominant performance from Ernie Nierras' side.
