Voltes climbed to solo second with nine points, three off unbeaten leader Global, while Stallion got the maximum three points after starting the league season with losses to Global (4-2) and the Loyola Meralco Sparks (3-1).
Baguioro, loaned from powerhouse Ceres-La Salle, continued to make good use of the playing a key role for the Japanese-flavored Voltes by finding the back of the net in the 13th, 38th, and 43rd minutes.
Voltes won after losing 4-0 to Global in a Thursday game that saw them lose steam in the second half after a scoreless tie at the half.
Meanwhile, Doctora’s eventual winner for Stallion came in the 25th minute after beating Kaya keeper Matthew Acton.
Stallion goalie Roland Sadia had a strong showing behind the sticks, saving attempts by Kaya’s Kenshiro Daniels and Robert Lopez Mendy to seal the victory.
