Najip continue impressive run in DST Super League

Sunday, April 19, 2015

NAJIP I-TEAM made it three out of three wins to the start of their DST Super League campaign with a 4-0 victory over Wijaya FC last night.

Azri Zahari scored a double while Mushready Chuchu and Mohd Amirul Hamrey Mohd Norshaney bagged a goal each in the triumph at the Berakas Sports Complex.

It was fluid passing by Najip I-Team that saw Azri break the deadlock from inside the box in the 12th minute.

Wijaya were pushing forward in search for an equaliser but nothing materialised from their efforts. Azri was put through on goal in the 22nd minute but Wijaya goalkeeper Md Burhanuddin Hj Edy Asmady came out of the box to try to stop him but instead brought him down.

Wijaya were given a let off after the referee reached for his pocket and only pulled out a yellow card.

Wijaya got on target in the 28th minute after Hj Mohd Subhi Abdilah Hj Bakir fired a freekick from 25 yards out only straight at Najip I-Team custodian Ron Junior Philip. Azri got at the end of a long ball inside the box three minutes later but Md Burhanuddin did well to deny him.

Wijaya had a good chance to equalise in the 42nd minute after Khalil Saab brought down a long ball inside the box but only to fire wide.

It took Najip I-Team just six minutes into the second half to add to the scoresheet with Mushready Chuchu heading home a freekick from the right.

Another opportunity came for Najip I-Team after Haziman Hj Abd Halim was put through on goal in the 57th minute but could only find the side netting.

Najip I-Team made it 3-0 on the hour mark after a long ball bounce off a Wijaya defender inside the box for Azri to slot it past Md Burhanuddin.

Azri got another chance in the 68th minute after a chested down a freekick from their own half but blasted it off target.

The next minute saw Najip I-Team skipper Ratano Hj Tuah put a ball to the middle but Azri fired it over from close range.

Najip I-Team added to the scoresheet after a long ball set Mohd Amirul Hamrey off to the races before slotting it home in between two Wijaya markers to complete the win.

Najip I-Team head coach Johari Hj Bungsu was delighted with the performance of his charges.

“Our game improved after we scored the opening goal in the first half. We didn’t get that many chances in the second half but we took them each time we got them,” said Johari in an interview with The Brunei Times after the triumph. “Our finishing was good tonight (Saturday night) especially Azri and even our set pieces were alright,” he added.

Over at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex, Mohd Alikhan Hj Mohd Yakob salvaged a point for Lun Bawang FC after netting in the 93rd minute for a 1-1 draw against the Royal Brunei Police Force Sports Council.

The policemen looked set for all three points with a goal by L/cpl Jasriman Hj Johari in the 31st minute separated the two sides.

The competition continues today at 8.15pm with Tabuan Muda (the national under-23 football team) up against the Royal Brunei Armed Forces Sports Council (MS ABDB) at the Tutong Sports Complex.
