10 Sept (Bayan Baru) - Saturn ended the game as the lucky winner as MOT team tried and tested the shaky defence.
The Saturns came back from their international breaks looking tired and shaky defending display. A penalty was given to Saturns after a MOT defender handled the ball within the box. Lau stepped up but failed to convert despite a "go easy" pleadge from the team mates. Lau will not be taking penalty anymore as the failure rate of conversion is just unbearable.
Right after Lau BS missed the spot kick , RS falls behind to a goal after a swift counter attack from Motorola. MOT 1, Saturns 0.
1:1 Not long after, SB intercepted the ball at midfield, drive forward & play a neat one two with Chong Seng; brilliant returned ball from CS sent SB clean through to goal, SB calmly slot the ball over the keeper into the net & lifted the RS’s team spirit.
2-1: shortly after scoring the goal, SB sent CS down to left wing after another timely interception at midfield; CS’s dazzling dribbling skill sent the defender eating the artificial grass & lift the ball to the far post for Haniff to tap in. Wonderful team goal with Haniff showing superb and yet simple finishing skill!!!
2-2: after 10 second from the re-start with lacked of concentration from RS’s players, Motorola score the equalizer goal after race through RS defence & scored. RS's defenders were caught sleeping and unable to catch up with MOT's pacy attacks.
2-3: RS falls asleep yet again!!! Still trying to recover from the goals, Motorola have a long range shot from outside the area & flew in to the corner of the goal. RS defenders were unable to close up MOT and presented MOT chances to shoot and they take it superbly.
2-4: shocking defence from RS!!! Zahrein got robbed of the ball at just outside of the penalty area, leaving RS falls behind 2 goals after a good 1st half display.
3-4: CS scored with assist from Mun Choy. Lifted RS’s team spirit after a calamity start to the 2nd half. The RS dominated midfield with SB being influential, winning the ball back and initiated the counter attack with simple and accurate passing.
4-4: Haniff scored assist from Mun Choy after yet again a fine midfield attacking display. Haniff leveled the scores to 4-4 & bring in the final minutes with a chance to win the match.
5-4: a fine redemption from Zahrein after a disaster start to the 2nd half who sent CS clean through with a fine through ball, great 1st touch, CS scored the goal to the near post of the goalkeeper.
