Despite dominating their opponents, Global looked set to be denied all three points for the first time this season as they struggled to find a way past a resilient Air Force defence.
However, the breakthrough finally arrived in the 83rd minute when Jeffrey Christiaens headed home a Patrick Reichelt cross for his fourth goal in three matches, before Delon Patrick Yao wrapped up the victory a minute from time when he curled in a delightful effort.
The victory was enough to send Brian Reid's side back top of the table ahead of Loyola Meralco Sparks, but they are not the only ones with a perfect record after Stallion Sta. Lucia also made it 18 points from six matches with a 3-1 victory over Pachanga Diliman.
Stallion took the lead on the half-hour mark when South Korean import Lee Joo-young opened the scoring, before Reuben Doctora netted nine minutes later to double his side's tally.
Pachanga did pull one back in the 70th minute when Jason Cunliffe curled home a freekick to keep alive their hopes of a comeback, but those were extinguished eight minutes from time when Rufinho added a third for Stallion to wrap up the victory.
