berated the players despite the win at Super Lakhsa-Lorong 12, which put Grilled atop III.15 alongside old rivals newbies are newbies. "We made it far harder than it should have been." he complained. "McCoys aren't a weak side, but they were right there for the taking."
Bacelar did accord special praise for Moey Xin Seng
, who he felt had matured into a fine on-field leader. "Twenty years is young, but it isn't that young either, and Moey is doing exactly what I would expect of a captain-in-waiting. Goals aside, his ability to read the game - and translate it into action - has also been improving by leaps and bounds."
Lastly, Bacelar would offer some encouragement to reserve goalkeeper Dan Seng
, who committed a high-profile mistake, while also making several top saves. "Dan did well not to let his gaffe affect him. He may yet play in a few more big games, this season."
Elsewhere, newbies are newbies went ahead of Grilled on goal difference, after prevailing away in a thriller at sealion, five goals to three. ArSenal U21 remained unbeaten by holding Pearl Divers 2-2, while Quipersss appear destined to hog the bottom spot, after taking yet another heavy whitewash, this time 0-8 at the hands of Changi Genius.
As for the Farmer Bunnies, Vishnu Tallapaka
lived up to his new billing with a fine counterattacking goal to kick things off versus Boat, but the day belonged to the redoubtable Enzo Paolo Panzarino
, who didn't miss a beat in scoring four on the day. Sarkis Krikoryan
got one in somewhere in the midst of those, while Japanese import Yuta Nishimura got Boat's consolation from a corner.
The result leaves the Bunnies level with BENG UTD and Sporting VDF atop III.11 with six points from two games, if with a far inferior goal difference, after the two routed AKBMH FC and M4 United respectively. New East Coast and Kim Tae Hee FC battled to a grueling two-all draw in the last fixture.
