Grilled destroyed Holland side lamediao 9-0 in their traditional runup to the new season, even as Ola Martinsson
continued to bed in to his lone striker role, with Hjortlind stewing on the bench.
The all-important opening goal wasn't long in coming, as Quah Han Kok
, playing right wing, simply blew past the muscular Alfian bin Yaacob, who attempted to get a handful of Quah's shirt but missed. Fabian Bona
then pulled off a low-percentage overhead kick, and Grilled were on easy street.
lamediao, already two down in four minutes, attempted to get a grip, but their half-hearted defending was soon exposed again by the sheer pace of Quah, who rounded a couple of defenders before unleashing a stinger. It was too much for striker Faizal bin Jamal Mohd, who pulled a hamstring racing to a rare ball down the channel.
Substitute Lin Yuan was much more circumspect in his efforts, though he need not be bothered as Grilled kept the ball well away from him. van Liere and Paullin got it to five, before lamediao winger Peng Ying Zhong was booked for a rather sad attempt at conning the referee into giving a penalty.
Sid then contributed a brace in the second half, while Martinsson, who had put in a lot of hard running and holding up of the ball, ensured that he would not leave empty-handed with a timely sprint. van Liere would round it all up, with Grilled's near-spotless disciplinary record marred by a yellow for Sid in the 86th minute.
