RS coach Mr.X condemned Lau BS's teamwork attitude as the team's injury & MIA list is growing longer & longer, he still choose to abandoned the team on the last minutes again & again, luckily though not all RS's players have the same mindset as him.

Eventually the work paid off, Im FC's keeper try to pass out from the back & intercept by Zharif, who control & send a left footed into the bottom of the net. Games ON, RS can seen regain confident from the goal.
RS again building & circulate the ball nicely, Andrew's through ball send BK free at the right wing, BK saw the run of Zharif & send a wonderful into the heard the Im FC's 12 yard, Zharif arrived & score on the half volley into center of the net.

RS try hard to score a second ball, a brilliant chance fell to WJ when Andrew drive from midfield & send an overhead through ball, surprisingly WJ controlled the ball with wonderful first touch, try to beat the keeper with the toe poke shot but keeper is well aware & save his shot.
keeper quickly launch another attack by sending a goal kick high up the field, SB try to control the ball but slipped & let Im FC through, the winger square the ball & the striker tapped in the last goal. the game is done by that goal.
