Grilled 2 - 6 ATKM
illed started off with a 2-5-3 lineup. The following players took the field: Seng - 力勇 (Liyong), Awyong - Fu, An Chu, Kong, Hoy, Chan - Wan Kang, 勇航 (Yonghang), Bellamoli.
ATKM had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: De Kwang - Ze Yew, Lee Min, Eng Yao - Long Su, Tse Boon, Kwang Loong, bin Ahmad, Tse Yau - Yao Jia, Tse.
Grilled clearly preferred using their ability to attack in the middle. Grilled's Pompeo Bellamoli
was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 5 minutes. 梁. 力勇 (Liyong)
enjoyed the sunshine and demonstrated his stunning technique over and over again. The most controversial moment of the game was likely the penalty given after 13 minutes. ATKM's Chung Yao Jia
kept his concentration, despite the upset crowd, and calmly put the ball past the keeper to make the score 0 - 1. 26 minutes into the game, ATKM had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to solid
. A drive down the left side allowed Chung Yao Jia
to get in close and score another goal for ATKM after 31 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 2. Confident in their lead, ATKM's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. The home crowd was given a certain amount of consolation when Leong Wan Kang
scored after a brilliant midfield combination through the centre, reducing the lead to 1 - 2. Chew Eng Yao
was the first to reach the corner kick, but his header was blocked by the keeper. However, ATKM's Kenneth Tse
managed to get hold of the rebound and tucked the ball into the empty net. 1 - 3 With 39 minutes played, ATKM's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Mo Tse Yau
he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 1 - 4. 1 - 4 was the score after the first half. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by ATKM, with 54 percent of the ball.
A review of the gameplan helped ATKM get back to a solid
organisation when the referee blew his whistle again. Grilled's fans were urging them forward as they tried to get back into the game, and their vocal support was rewarded 49 minutes into the match as Lin An Chu
ran onto a beautiful ball played through the visitors' defence and slotted it past the keeper to reduce the deficit. 2 - 4. After 57 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave Chew Eng Yao
a chance to increase the lead for ATKM, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 2 - 5. After the ball was lifted in from the left, Tan Lee Min
was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 76 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. 76 minutes into the game, ATKM were awarded a penalty and Chung Yao Jia
was able to increase the visitors' lead to 2 - 6 rolling the ball in by the right post. That was his third goal of the match - a hat trick for Chung Yao Jia
. Neither team were able to dominate possession this half. 田. 勇航 (Yonghang)
performed admirably for Grilled. Winston Chan
turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating ATKM player was without a doubt Chung Yao Jia
. Khaw De Kwang
on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 6.
