DPMM FC finish third

Saturday, November 28, 2015

DPMM FC equalled their best finish in the Singapore Cup with a 3-1 victory over the Philippines’ Global FC in the third-place playoff yesterday.
The win concludes the best season to date for Brunei’s only professional team after they claimed their first Singapore League (S-League) title last Saturday.
Md Hendra Azam Md Idris and Paulo Sergio gave DPMM FC, who also finished third last year, a two-goal lead in the first half before Dennis Villanueva pulled one back early after the restart.
Boris Raspudic then got his name on the scoresheet to seal the win at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
DPMM FC had a chance to grab the lead in the seventh minute after good pressure by Sergio to dispossess a Global defender.
The Portuguese forward fired at goal after getting in the box, but his attempt was denied by goalkeeper Patrick Deyto.
Another opportunity came begging in the 13th minute after a clearance by Deyto went straight to Rafael Ramazotti, but the latter’s shot was just inches wide.
A good one-two by Mark Hartmann and Mario Clarino in the 16th minute allowed the latter a shot at goal but DPMM FC custodian Wardun Yussof pulled off a good stop.
Hartmann tried one from range five minutes later but Wardun was to his equal for a save.
Global skipper Misagh Bahadoran released Hartmann in the 24th minute but he couldn’t place his attempt on target.
DPMM FC grabbed the lead fours minute later with Md Hendra Azam scoring off a - from the edge of the 18-yard box.
Global could have equalised in the 34th minute after Villanueva got at the end of a Hartmann free-kick, but his effort was just wide.
The Brunei side had a good chance to double their advantage in the 40th minute with Sergio through on goal, but he couldn’t get the better of Deyto.
DPMM FC were awarded a penalty two minutes later after Boris Raspudic’s header was kept out by Deyto before Daisuke Sato cleared using his hand.
Sergio stepped up and made no mistake from 12 yards out to make it 2-0.
Global pulled one back just four minutes after the interval with Sato getting past two markers on the left before sending a cross for Villanueva to head home at the near post.
The Filipino side had the momentum and Villanueva found the back of the net again in the 63rd minute again only to be flagged offside.
DPMM FC restored their two-goal cushion two minutes later after Global failed to clear a set-piece.
Deyto had kept out a Brian McLean effort from inside the box but Ramazotti gave chase and put the ball to the middle for Boris Raspudic to poke home from close range. Hartmann tried one from a tight angle in the 75th minute but his shot was deflected wide.
The Global forward had another chance in the 85th minute but his header went straight at Wardun - summing up their game.
