Ermis' Last Runout
There was plenty of mutual hand-gripping all around as Amancio Canuto called the match to a close, with Vivian Grubenmann
admitting that he wasn't too eager for an additional half-hour. "It's an improvement. No sense emptying out the tank right now, there's plenty of serious games on the books."
The game would also be the last for the Buns' 38 year-old Greek striker Ermis Ftenopoulos

And over in Cambodia, Grilled International bested III.7 hosts Stronghold Hordes 2, by four goals to none. Ragib Banović
got the goals flowing with a headed brace by the 63rd minute, despite Wang Chu Chi
having to go off early with a strained thigh. Abdul Hamid bin Hj Ali Timbang
entered, and rounded off the scoring with a clever run off Meaker Sang's shoulder.
confirmed that Wang's injury was minor, but also that he would be unlikely to play any further part in the Supporter Week Trophy. "He'd best keep it on ice for a few days."
