Five-star Kilanas put on a show

Wednesday, October 31, 2012
KILANAS FC outplayed BESA FC 5-1 in last night's DST Brunei FA Cup third-round match at the Balapan Track and Field at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.

Kilanas commanded most of the possession in the first half with through balls and one-two passing, leaving BESA to defend at all costs.

They marked their first goal in the sixth minute when Mohamed Azmi Hj Zainin was fed a cross from the right, with the striker easily tapping the ball home.

Their second goal was the result of a 22nd minute mistake from a BESA defender, who accidentally passed the ball to Kilanas' Naasiruddeen Abdul Wahab in the penalty box, the midfielder scoring with a right-footed shot.

Syazwan Azizi Hj Mohd Taib made it 3-0 in the 29th minute when he ran onto a through ball which tore BESA's defence apart, and just two minutes later, Mohd Nor Hidayatullah Hj Zaini sprinted with the ball to the right and fired the ball pass a helpless BESA FC goalkeeper with a shot from just outside the penalty box.

The second-half saw more ball possession for BESA, but they were limited to long-range attempts because of Kilanas' strong four-man defence.

Mohd Khairul Hj Abd Halim made it 5-0 with a 73rd minute penalty to the left which crept in under BESA goalkeeper Md Hasif Hj Amdan.

Although the game was over for BESA FC, the team managed to get themselves a late goal two minutes from time when a cross from the right found Hj Mohd Aliakbar Damong Hj Omarali, who tapped the ball into goal.

Speaking to The Brunei Times, Kilanas FC assistant coach Mohd Radzuan Hj Madali said that the team won because of their initial strategy of going full-steam ahead in the first-half.

"Our tactic worked as we just went all-out on offence in the first-half," he said.

The assistant coach added that even though BESA were pressing them in the second-half, they still controlled the game with good defence and counter-attacks.

Tonight's match will see Liang Lumut Recreation Club Football Team (LLRC FT) taking on Setia Perdana at the Balapan Track and Field at 8pm.
