Bested By Oneteam

Grilled captain Moey Xin Seng hadn't enjoyed this particular match. "Robbie were dreadfully effective, and it works for them, but I can't say that I like this type of football. I consider it a moral victory, even if we got just one point."

littlehorse pulled six points clear of Grilled, and two points of second-placed Mia San Toa Payoh, with their 5-0 whitewash of their meek Talpons visitors, who also lost striker Emiler Valverde early on. Mia San for their part did their job against a stubborn Kim Tae Hee FC side, helped plenty by Jerry Lim's opportunistic ninth minute opener.

Bottom two -= Manchester United =- and richlyeng rangers played out a 0-0 that helped neither team really, with John Mcnamara now also suspended for ranger's upcoming clash with littlehorse, not that it should matter too much. United arguably did enough to win it, and would have, had Manuel Nastasi taken his time against Krystian Dub in the 65th minute.

While this leaves United without a win - if with four draws - after five rounds, Hovaness Nourbayan remained wary of them. "They may have released several good players, but they're also a wounded beast right now. There won't be many chances, which the players have to keep in mind considering what happened today."

Farmer Bunnies meanwhile fell to their first loss in Division Two, even if it was a close-run affair against leading Serangoon club Oneteamtoplay. The two-time Challenger Cup winners were expertly hemmed in by the Buns, with the inventive Shabanali Izad Panah all but neutralized by Brendan Leung. They couldn't find a way past Pere Puigpelat, however, and Boe Mogensen would come up with the hosts' winner in the 76th minute, off his own rebound.

Controlar's victory over Between a Walk and a Hard Pace saw them overtake the Buns on goal difference together with Oneteamtoplay, as a disappointed Sim Leng Cheng could only lick his wounds. "I'm not sure what more we could have done."

The only good news for the week was left to Grilled International, who smashed Indonesian semi-pros Kebebasan tanpa batas without breaking a sweat. Safari bin Hj Jali was entrusted with the armband, and scored in all of four minutes. Abdul Hamid bin Hj Ali Timbang then recorded only his third career hat-trick, with Micky bin Kadir and substitute Hesky Atmanegara making it six goals for G.I. in total.

The win opened up a healthy six point advantage for G.I. over the chasing pack in the middle of the V.231 table, though Black Trapper continued their perfect run with a 5-0 against fc Snoetie. Understandably, the Trapper doubleheader in a fortnight is foremost in Tajit bin Mohd's mind.

"It'll be challenging, but I have faith in the squad." Tajit said. "They have a great defence, but it's not entirely beyond us."
