Cubs defeat Eagles

The Courts Young Lions defeated Geylang United 3-2 in front of a near 3000 crowd at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

One should have expected the crowds as Courts have managed to invite Pele and Cantona to the match.

It has also clearly inspired the Cubs as they raced to a two-goal lead thanks to Fazli Ayob and Shahfiq Ghani but they threw it away as the Eagles staged a comeback.

Yasir Hanapi and Syed Thaha scored either side of the break to make the score 2-2.

But once again, this week, there was yet another contentious goal as Shahfiq Ghani notched his second of the night.

As seem from these pictures, one cannot tell as the movements was incomplete and who know where the keeper scooped the ball so I just have to take the words of the linesman.

The Eagles though could not stomach it and I do not blamed them but it will cost them as they saw Stanely Ng and Kim Jae Hong send off.

The Cubs also saw Irwan Shah send off along with assistant coach Slobodan Pavkovic, who was reported as having push the referee.

The Serbian is expected to face a ban along with a fine for that action.

In another match on the next night, also at Jalan Besar, the Jaguars and the Rams drew 0-0.
