Uniform Derby thriller


It was a thriller as much as it was unexpected.

With an hour gone it should have been game over for SAFFC who was starting at a third defeat in a row to start their 2012 season.

Down by two goals thanks to Qiu Li and Shotaro Ihata, they were goner but no one told them that script as they rally back in the last quarter.

Fazrul Nawaz was the instigator as he came off the bench to notch two goals with Tatsuro Inui adding another in between.

But Home was no quitter in that  time with Qiu Li also notching another goal.

In the end nobody could land that sucker punch and 3-3 was the fair result in a game that lit up in the final quarter.

In the other match, it was also a draw as Balestier Khalsa and Gombak United play out to a 1-1 game.

Park Kang Jin score for Balestier while Mustaqim Manzur notch for Gombak.
