Saturday, October 24, 2015THE Royal Brunei Armed Forces Sports Council (MS ABDB) clinched the DST Super League title for the first time after crushing bottom dweller Kilanas FC 6-1 at the Tutong Sports Complex last night.
With 45 points, the army men have an insurmountable 13-point lead over two-time defending champions Indera Sports Club – who are second with 32 points. MS ABDB have two games left and Indera four, with both teams facing each other in the season-ender on Nov 16.
Taking a 1-1 lead at the break, the army men came out firing on all cylinders in the second half and Kilanas could find no reply.
When interviewed by The Brunei Times, MS ABDB’s interim manager Major (A) Razanol Hardi Abd Razak refused to accept credit for the win, instead saying he was just carrying the team that was built by MS ABDB manager Major (A) Pg Md Farisan Pg Hj Metassan - who last month left for a one-year stay in Mindanao, Philippines, with the International Monitoring Team (IMT).
“Kudos to Kilanas FC for giving us a very tough game, especially in the first half. They definitely kept their promise by giving us a good challenge,” said Major (A) Razanol.
“Major Pg Farisan gave me a fantastic team to manage, so most of the credit should go to him.
“At the end of the day, it’s the players who worked hard the most - and they have done fantastically!
We won this title and it’s all about the teamwork we have.
“We have two more games to go, and of course, we want to conclude the season with a bang.”
