Grilled striker Mohd Safri bin Mohd Kassim
expressed his disappointment at not being able to meet the full strength of Kampung United. "I still remember playing - and scoring - against them as a rookie back when we were in III.13. Their record in Division Three has been exemplary thus far, and maybe we'll meet again quite soon!"
, Grilled's other survivor, albeit with a break in between, from those days, seconded the sentiment. "It was a strange experience really, but rules are rules. Kampung are not quite out of it yet, don't count them out from winning their next three matches."
The Birds, while now second on four points and goal difference, will be up against it with Scallop Soccer Team next on the agenda. Scallop were perhaps slightly unlucky to lose 3-5 to current leaders Random Curiosity FC in an evenly-matched contest, even as Be Champions FC kept close with a controlled 2-0 over Ho Seh Liao.
In the other group, Dodogado and BDSM FC continued setting the pace with tight victories over Fafane Club and Tampines Phoenix F.C. respectively, with Toader-Vasile Ciobanu again proving his worth for the former. There was some disappointment after Golden Jaguars conceded a walkover to Team of Semipro, with the team bus reportedly stuck in traffic.
