Grilled's continued pleasure was balanced by more pain for the Farmer Bunnies, as they were relegated to the third division by Batok Earthquakes, a precipitous decline for a club that had finished mid-table in the S-League, just last season. There were few signs of that Buns side at Carrot Field today, sadly, as the succumbed to second-half strikes from Ronald Kiriwawanvu and Lim Cheng Hui.
Assistant coach Li Aik Meng was left to fend off the press, as the ever more quiet Dalibor Kostadinović
retreated into the dressing room, and word is that the Serbian head coach has already been given marching orders, though with a transition period written in. While this could not be officially confirmed, there seems little doubt that this high-mileage Bunnies backline will be broken up sooner rather than later.
It would be better for Grilled International at least, as they recovered from their own blues, with an 8-0 whipping of Madagascar Division Three hosts All My Life. Founded by the same management of established Turkish clubs s'onsuz and Yeni Hayat, this recently-assembled side was nonetheless no match for International's raw firepower, which saw them create a steady stream of goals over the entire match.
