Not So Honeyed

Moey Xin Seng thought the Cup test a fine warmup for the league. "We did okay out there. ju5tan0therper50n might have done better had they gone on the defence from the outset, but they should be commended for not resorting to that. We might be seeing more of them soon."

Chan Ze Han didn't enjoy the double-teaming much, but asserted that it was nothing he wasn't used to. "If it creates room for the others, I see it as a win."

Farmer Bunnies would advance in the competition too, but it would be tougher than they had expected against IV.8 challengers Honey Bunny FC. The Geylang representatives and twice league runners-up would run up a two-goal lead in the first half, lifted by a 16th minute penalty converted by Ghabous Sorkhabi. A shock crash-out seemed imminent before the Iranian's 72nd minute free-kick floated just over, and Billy Camperio got one back against the run of play.

Ong Li Jing would then grab an equalizer from Xue Kangfang's cross, on only his second start for the Buns, with the underperforming Vitaliy Efendiev gone off for Ibrahim Zahran Al-Maashany. Jerad Meyer would likewise be replaced by Vishnu Tallapaka for extra time, before the Buns endured a see-sawing penalty shootout that had Lau Keng Kwang and then Ong come up with pitiful attempts. Marko Petkov overcooked it on Honey Bunny's sixth take, however, which allowed Lim Su Liang to finally conclude the contest with a calm sweep to the left bottom corner.

That it even went that far did not reflect well on the Buns' condition, as Ghana international Richard Agyei had to acknowledge. "We played below ourselves, plain and simple. There should be no excuse for not doing better."

Grilled International enjoyed the customary one-sided rampage against in-administration EDE International, with Sazwan bin Hj Muhd Salleh leading the way with a brace against the Germans. Not much could be surmised from the 8-0 rout of far inferior opposition, but for Chua Jun Long, it was simply a relief to get off the scoring mark, late in the game.
