15 September 2019

Mea Bernal tucked in the equalizer in the 89th minute as they came back from a goal down early in the first half for a share of the honors on Sunday, September 15, in a friendly match at Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground, Hong Kong.

Malditas gear up for the upcoming homestand in Biñan for the Southeast Asian Games in November.

Let Dimzon’s Malditas fell behind in the 8th minute on a goal by Cheung Wai-ki, who converted on Ho Mui-mei’s ball after intercepting Hali Long at the right-hand side.

Alisha del Campo nearly equalized in the 35th minute, but her effort off a Sara Castañeda feed went just inches wide to the left post.

Cheung almost turned provider for Hong Kong skipper Chan Wing-sze five minutes into the second half, but the midfielder saw her shot just went wide left past Inna Palacios.

The reprieve for the Malditas came a minute before full-time, as Del Campo found the streaking Bernal inside the box, who made no mistake in firing her low shot past Ng Cheuk-wai and into the back of the net.
