THERE was plenty of movement in the DST Super League table after the fifth round of action ended on Monday.

The Royal Brunei Armed Forces Sports Council (MS ABDB) will kick off the sixth round at the top of the standings with a perfect 12 points from four games.

The armymen fired to the top of the 10-team table after a 2-0 victory over Jerudong FC at the Balapan Track & Field at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas on Saturday.

Majra United FC are just one point behind but have played one game more.

Majra moved to second after providing a shocker by dispatching previous leaders Indera Sports Club 2-0 on Sunday, Indera's first loss of the season dropping them to fourth with 10 points.

The Royal Brunei Police Forces Sports Council (MS PDB) currently hold onto third with the same number of points but with a better goal difference.

The policemen picked up their third win of the season after a 2-1 victory over Wijaya FC in Sunday's other game where they found the back of the net twice in the last seven minutes.

Wijaya looked to be on their way to the win after a goal by Abang Muhd Fakhri Abang Jaludin in the 50th minute.

However, Mohammad Huzairol Mohammad Idris equalised in the 83rd minute before Mohd Fazizul Hussin put them in front five minutes before the final whistle.

Powerhouses QAF FC also finally got back to their winning ways after triumphing 2-0 against week two leaders Liang Lumut Recreation Club Football Team (LLRC FT) on Friday.

Muhammad Hafis Mahari put QAF in the lead in the 14th minute before former DPMM FC midfielder Hardi Bujang made it 2-0 in the 72nd minute.

It was a much-needed victory considering that the team had missed two matches due to postponement from bad weather and lighting respectively, and only had one point to show from their previous two matches.

QAF's rescheduled matchup against MS ABDB today has also been moved to a later date.

On the other hand, LLRC FT have lost three games in a row after winning their first two of the season and are now in mid-table on six points.

The last game of the week saw Kilanas FC barge into the win column after a 7-1 rout of Najip FC on Monday.

It was battle between the bottom-two teams in the table, but Kilanas were on a whole different level as they dominated from start to finish.

The win saw Kilanas move to eighth spot on four points. QAF are equal on points but have a better goal difference and sit in seventh.

Wijaya are on ninth while Najip remain the only team still in search of a point.

Wijaya will take on LLRC at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas on Friday to kick off the sixth round.

Najip and Indera will do battle on Saturday at the Balapan Track & Field.

QAF will go up against Jerudong on Sunday while the battle at the top heats up when MS ABDB and Majra go head-to-head on Monday.

The matchup between Kilanas and MS PDB on Wednesday completes the week of games.

MS PDB's Rosmini Hj Abd Kahar is tied with Indera's Md Azwan Ali Rahman and Jerudong's Muhd Abu Bakar Mahari as the league's joint top-scorers with six goals each.
