Both teams closed the first round with 15 points and while both also scored 11 goals each, Verdes allowed only two to Altitude’s six giving them a four-goal edge over their southern rivals. Moreover, Verdes are the only undefeated team in the PLB having won four games and drawn three. Altitude, for their part, lost two but won five, one more than Verdes.
