was goalless as fellow midfielder Jon Andrea Rottman
hit a hattrick against Glory Hoggers in the second round of the Cup, but he responded in style with four, breaking his duck this season. Clementi side wheelow has had a long history but has fallen on hard times, and just entering the third-round tie was a new record for them.
They qualified by beating hantu 3-2 and then followed up with another 3-2 win in the league versus Equator Holland, but it was all for naught as Ulf Hjortlind
wasted no time in getting his name up in lights, breaking the weak central defence pairing of Abd Aziz bin Ismail and Shu Nhu-Nguyen with consumate ease. Forgetting Peter Magunsson's boo-boo last week, Zhan Ju-Hau
launched himself into an unnecessary tackle and was very relieved to only be shown a yellow. Magunsson himself, surprisingly back in the fray on the right, set Au-Yong up for the second as he bent a short cross pass in which the midfielder took on the fly.
Au-Yong had two to his name by the fifteenth minute, this time courtesy of Kolesov as the defenders' attentions were strictly on Grilled's Swedish strikers. In between, ageing winger Ashaari bin Yub Abdul Majid could not stand the rigours of the game and had to be substituted by another veteran, Xi Chun-min.
33 year-old halfback Xia Keng-Ooi revealed surprising vigour as he showed Kolesov, not much more than half his age, a clean pair of heels. wheelow had a real chance at a goal as Keng-Ooi made good time towards Öhmo, before Dewilde came across from the left to defuse the situation. The experienced winger taught Kolesov a lesson or two in positioning, which left the Bulgarian sore after constant tumbling to counter him.Au-Yong Siu-Yue
equalled Rottman's feat in just 49 minutes as he happened upon an overhit cross from Kolesov, and his wild volley smacked against a couple of players before burying itself right into the corner as a despairing She Lau-Po watched. The wheelow skipper did all he could, but millions in value showed as Ola Martinsson
hit a fifth past him in the 58th minute.Au-Yong Siu-Yue
surpassed Rottman's deed with a flash of flamboyance as he went upside-down to score a fourth from close range, a feat seldom experienced since the heady days of Tim Hobson
. The battle on the flanks was also slowly being won by Kolesov, as the pace of the game told on Keng-Ooi. Xia was ultimately hauled up for taking down Kolesov as the youngster's superior endurance won out. Ola Martinsson
added another as he blasted a hard free-kick through a reluctant wheeloh defensive wall, and Hjortlind ended the game as he started - with a goal.
