Old horse Duric set up Stags win

Leaders Tampines Rovers crushed Sengkang Punggol 3-0 to get their season back on track.

After the Eastern Derby defeat, there was only going to be one outcome at Hougang as the Dolphins feel the full force of the anger of the Stags with one from Khariul Amri along with a brace from Qiu Li.

But the hero has to be Duric, who despite not scoring, was the main conductor of the three goals as he tormented the Dolphins defence time and time again as they could not keep up with the 'pace' and strength of the 40-year-old.

The old horse have show there is still life in him and could go yet again for another year even as he claimed he is into his last season.

That was what Woodlands Wellington needed, two days earlier, as their own old warhorses, other than Abdelhadi Laakkad, was showing their age as they were outgun (Or out of breath) 1-2 in the end despite playing brilliantly.

Abdelhadi Laakkad had given Rams the lead but the White Swans refuse to give up as the Rams gave them the chance by 'refusing' the chances that came their way.

In the end, they were punished as Shota Matsuoka and Tatsuro Inui score for the White Swans.
