Najip FC reclaim top spot

Sunday, May 24, 2015

NAJIP FC reclaimed the DST Super League summit again after ousting IKLS FC 2-1 at the Berakas Sports Complex last night.
The three points bagged meant Najip FC hopped over defending champions Indera SC and are first again with 15 points while IKLS FC suffered their fifth loss of the season. But today, Indera SC can take their spot again if they win against the Royal Brunei Police Force Sports Council (MS PDB) at their match at 8.15pm at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium.
Cagey was the name of the game as both teams played direct but kept squandering their chances.
Individual star performances from both teams were the difference last night.
Like a predator, Najip FC’s Abd Faiq Roslan poached right behind a defender, received the ball and drilled it past IKLS FC’s goal line to make it 1-0 at the 23rd minute.
Right after the break, IKLS FC responded right away as winger Ak Muhd Nur Izzuddin Pg Yusof faked a shot to lure Najip FC custodian Fardillah Hj Md Ali out and gleefully chipped it to the top right corner.
Excitement got the better of IKLS FC’s players however as they needlessly conceded a freekick right at the edge of the box.
Najip FC midfielder Haziman Hj Abd Halim curled the ball in and it was actually within the grasps of the IKLS goalkeeper but he spilled the beans, kindly falling over to Noor Raimi Karim who slotted the winning goal at the 52nd minute.
In the match between the bottom dwellers, Lun Bawang somehow was awarded four penalties and scored their first win of the season last night.
Lun Bawang ousted Kilanas FC 6-3 to keep their sorry opponents immobilised at the bottom with 22 goals conceded while Lun Bawang jumped from ninth to eight, replacing IKLS FC who now fell to ninth.
