WASTEFUL Indera SC were made to settle for a point after drawing 3-3 against Jerudong FC in a thrilling DST Super League encounter last night.

Md Asnawi Syazni Abd Aziz had given Jerudong the lead in the 11th minute but it was shortlived with Md Aimmil Rahman Ramlee equalising just two minutes later.
Indera then went in front for the first time four minutes before the halftime whistle courtesy of Asri Hj Aspar at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.
Indera control much of the second half but couldn’t find a way past Md Iswandy Hj Md Azmi in between the Jerudong sticks.
They came close in the 66th minute but Naziruddin, who had only come on for two minutes, was denied by the post.
Hazwan Hamzah’s header off a corner was goal bound but was cleared off the line by a Jerudong player four minutes later.
Another chance went begging in the 74th minute after Asri somehow put the ball over from point blank range.

Instead, Jerudong levelled off a superb counterattack in the 82nd minute.
Indera’s freekick from the edge of the area came off the wall and was cleared upwards to skipper Atifudin @ Amir Mamduh Momin.
He then put the ball to his left before Hidayatur Rahim Aliuddin held off his defender to slot it home.
Jerudong went in front three minutes later after a freekick from the right was headed to the far post.
It dropped nicely for Yansen Efendi, who took a side step before firing it past Indera custodian Md Ahsanuddin Hj Md Dani.
Indera got the equaliser when Jerudong were a man down with Atifudin getting treatment at the sidelines.
A ball from the left by Safwan Amaluddin Sabli was not cleared properly and only got to as far as Naziruddin to fire home from inside the area.
Indera almost snatched it seconds from the end but Md Aimmil put his effort wide to see both teams take a point from the matchup.
Meanwhile, Kasuka FC moved to the summit of the 11-team standings after a 3-1 win over Wijaya FC at the Berakas Sports Complex.
Md Nazri Hj Hassan put Kasuka in front in the 18th minute but was cancelled out by Pg Anaqi Sufi Pg Hj Omar Baki in first half stoppage.

Mohd Asnawi Syazni bin Abdul Aziz scored the winner for Jerudong in the hour mark.

“It is every manager’s hope to win a game. Jerudong won tonight and I’m grateful that all players were able to do what they were instructed,” said Jalaluddin in a post-match interview.
“Wijaya are a strong team and if I’m not mistaken they were third last season.”
Jalaluddin hoped that his charges would continue with their hard work in training.
“We play football as a team. Hopefully, we continue to do so,” he added.
Jerudong finished at the bottom of the DST Super League last year with only one win to their name while Wijaya sealed a top three finish.

Not two far — MS PDB mount gallant fightback for draw

|     Fadhil Yunus     |
MS PDB staged a second half comeback after recovering from two goals down during the 2-2 draw against Tabuan Muda ‘A’ in a thrilling encounter in the Brunei DST Super League at the Berakas Sports Complex last night.
Abd Hariz bin Herman and Abd Mateen bin Said have provided Tabuan Muda a two-goal lead at the break but an effort five minutes from time denied the youths victory after Abd Azim bin Abd Rashid’s goal has earlier handed MS PDB a reprieve in the 66th minute.
The police personnel preserved their unbeaten record with all their goals coming in the second half this term while Tabuan Muda ‘A’ remained in the hunt for their first league win this season.
Tabuan Muda ‘A’ head coach Takao Fujiwara admitted that the third goal would have killed the tie.
“We should have ended the contest with a third goal. If we had scored the third goal, this game is already crossed off,” said Takao in a post-match interview.

Players vie for the ball. – KHAIRIL HASSAN
“Once we’ve had too many mistakes, then for sure our opponents had opportunities,” he added.
“It’s not only about protecting the lead and stay at 2-0. We always think about an international match,” said Takao.
The Japanese accepted that competitive games like the league fixtures and more training sessions would only bode well for the future adding that they need more experience.
Meanwhile, Takao’s opposite number MS PDB head coach Staff Sgt Sahrin Mohamad Jaya expected a tough match against a young Tabuan Muda side.
“We don’t think that it is easy to get three points tonight as Tabuan Muda is a future team for the national team,” said Sahrin.
“They (Tabuan Muda ‘A’) have developed from last year and looking at the game it has certainly been the case.”
He revealed that his charges lacked concentration and lost focus in the first half prompting him to instruct his charges to adopt an attacking play during the half-time team talk.

MS PDB COME BACK TO DRAW AGAINST TABUAN MUDA A

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
THE Royal Brunei Police Force Sports Council (MS PDB) came from behind to draw 2-2 against Tabuan Muda A in the DST Super League last night.
The policemen faced a two-goal deficit against the national Under-18 team at the interval but regrouped in the second half to score two goals, with the equaliser coming in the 85th minute at the Berakas Sports Complex.
MS PDB were on the defensive for most of the opening half and trailed in the 16th minute when Abd Hariz Herman was first to react to a blocked shot by MS PDB goalkeeper Cpl 4673 Md Khairol Amin Hj Zainuddin.
Tabuan Muda A, who played in the DST Premier League last season, continued to pressure their opponents and Abd Mateen Said doubled their lead in the 33rd minute when he headed home a cross from Md Hanif Aiman Hj Adanan after a good run down the right flank.
But the national juniors dropped their intensity in the second half and failed to finish off several chances - which ultimately cost them the game.
MS PDB grew in confidence after pulling a goal back when APO 7071 Abd Azim Abd Rashid dribbled past two players and beat Ak Yura at his near post in the 66th minute.
The policemen wrestled control of the game for good when they scored five minutes from time.
“We knew it would not be easy to get three points as Tabuan Muda A are the future national team and have developed well from last year,” said MS PDB coach Staff Sgt Sahrin Mohmad Jaya in a press release.
“We weren’t really focused in the first half but we told ourselves we had to attack more in the second half and get some goals,” he added.
His counterpart Takao Fujiwara felt his charges need more games at this level to improve.
“We made too many mistakes and our opponents took their opportunities, so hopefully we learn from this game," he said.
“We also needed a third goal to finish the game off,” concluded the Japanese.
The competition continue today with defending champions MS ABDB (Royal Brunei Armed Forces Sports Council) up against Lun Bawang at the Batu Apoi Sports Complex in Temburong at 3pm.
The other game pits Jerudong FC against Wijaya FC at the Berakas Sports Complex at 8.15pm.
