PFA feeling the Karma

PFA suffered their first league defeat as Kerma 11 recorded an emphatic 3-0 triumph at Padang Kompleks Sukan Mumong on Sunday afternoon.

PFA struggled to cope with a vibrant attacking display from the opposition throughout the contest as PFA looked to be missing defending stalwart in JJ at the back four. The captain started the match as a goalie as an alternative replacement for the injured Gigz.

It proved to be decisive when PFA’s back four looked so uncertain on every occasion and conceded two goals very easily in the first period. A vast improvement was definitely the order of the day in the second period but within fifteen minutes of the restart, PFA had found themselves with a mountain to climb as the opposition snatched a 3rd goal of the game.

There had been very little to cheer for the PFAs faithful, but there were chances created but it was not the day for the purple of PFA. This defeat means PFA will now have to bounce back in time for what promises to be a tough clash against Belait District on 3rd July 2011 followed by GBLL on 13th July 2011.

1st half:

JJ, David, Boy, Alai, Boy Habs, Nameng, Dillah, Fizu, Qayyum, Alfi, Daniel

2nd half:

JJ, David (Aqil), Boy, Alai, Boy Habs, Nameng (Bebek), Dillah (Jafni), Fizu (Duan), Qayyum, Alfi, Daniel

Qayyum’s magic give PFA first league win

PFA        2-1      Meraq Utd

PFA secured a 3 points against Meraq Utd in group B match after grinding out a 2-1 win at Padang Kompleks Sukan Mumong. PFA could not have wished for a better start after Daniel broke the deadlock as he smashed home past the goalkeeper in the first period. It was cagey opening with both sides tentative in their approach play.

PFA should have perhaps furthered their lead through Boy, who was guilty of failing to convert a penalty spot-kick. It was proving to be a difficult first game for PFA and their cause wasn’t helped when Japni was replaced by Fizu after the midfielder pulled up a groin injury.

The opposition were beginning to buckle under the pressure and finally got the equalizing goal in the second period after PFA’s defensive mix-up at the back. It was a huge blow to PFA followed by injuries which forced out Daniel and Najib from the pitch due to ankle injury. Both has been replaced by Arif and Aqil respectively.

Heads might have dropped, but a remarkable period of play was not over yet – and 15 minutes from the final whistle, PFA were back in front when Qayyum strike home a wonderful long range shot into the net which was proved to be the winning goal for PFA after the final whistle.

1st half:

Gigz, David, JJ, Alai, Boy Habs (Boy), Qayyum, Dillah, Japni (Fizu), Nameng, Daniel, Najib

2nd half:

Gigz, David, JJ, Boy, Alai, Qayyum, Dillah, Fizu, Nameng (Bebek), Daniel (Arif), Najib (Aqil)

Man of the match: David (You could call him Mr Duracell, after his performance today likened to a Duracell battery - always running and always on the go.)
