A second league test, a second win for Hovaness Noubaryan
, who could not help but be proud of his players. "Ropelearner rattled us at the start, but the team's response was outstanding. It's difficult to guard a side that specializes in shooting from distance, but we made up for it with our own attack."
Chan Ze Han
, of course, merited special mention. "Chan again changed the game when he went on. He's one-of-a-kind for us, but we don't want to burn him out, as happened late into the last campaign."
-Blitz- and newbies are newbies stayed about the Birds with 6-2 victories, with the former's George-Cosmin Tudorache getting back into the groove with a hat-trick against a subdued Red Chaos. Red Chaos' Austrian forward Peter Mader deserved praise for his two goals in difficult circumstances, but there was no doubt as to who were the better side.
newbies for their part cleaned out newcomers FC Pires, who did salvage some confidence for their next match with a late burst of energy. Over at Home Of De Young Guns, ArSenal U21 recovered from the opening day defeat to the Birds, by beating United Warrior Team 5-1.
Enzo Paolo Panzarino
ensured that Farmer Bunnies didn't miss Liderhan Kadyr overly, as he got another hat-trick in the Buns' 8-1 smashing of GoonSquad. Abdul Rafi Mohammad Zaafarani gave the visitors something to enjoy with his 18th minute leveller out of almost nothing, but Panzarino and Brendan Leung
- who struck twice himself - were far too much for the Gooners.
Ang Mohs in flip flops nevertheless replaced the Buns at the top of III.11 due to their 9-0 whitewash of City Wanderers, but they will find it much harder against Unium F.C, who came back with a tight 2-1 over M4 United, next Sunday. Sikong Darong
is certainly not underestimating M4.
"Every point is precious in our title quest, and there can't more any slip-ups like before." the Buns head coach said. "M4 have always been tricky opponents, and rest assured that we'll be studying them extremely carefully."
Grilled International completed the collection with a 8-0 over Real Hazard, although they like Grilled stayed third, with Benfica 1904 and Shaka Zibby performing likewise. Micky bin Kadir
wound up empty for once, with Abdul Hamid bin Hj Ali Timbang
, Wang Hanxuan
and Tommy Dongelmans
