MENGLAIT FC beat Kilanas FC 5-4 last night in their DSTGroup Brunei Premier League II match at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.

Ak Md Sallehuddin Pg Sairfuddin was the hero bagging a hat-trick for Menglait FC to grab all three points.

Kurmin @Ridhwan Hj Bini opened the scoring for Kilanas FC controlling the ball with a good first touch in the area to score past Ak Muhd Mu'izzuddin Pg Ismail, the Menglait FC goalkeeper, in the ninth minute.

The joy was short-lived however with Md Khalid Mustapah levelling the scores for Menglait FC two minutes later with a well taken strike from outside the penalty area to put the ball past the Kilanas FC goalkeeper, Amp Md Abd Rahman Amp Hj Abd Kahar.

Ak Md Sallehuddin then put Menglait FC in front with his first goal of the night in the 25th minute putting the scores at 2-1.

Izzul Wazien Osman got the equaliser in the 35th minute when Menglait FC were a man down due to injury.

With the scores tied at 2-2 at halftime, Kilanas FC came out storming and they were rewarded in the 49th minute when the Menglait FC defenders couldn't clear the ball and then tripped one of their opponents in the box.

Mohd Razi Hj Lamit made no mistake and converted from the penalty spot to let Kilanas FC regain the lead.

Ak Md Sallehuddin got his second goal of the night in the 58th minute bringing the scores to 3-3 when he chipped the ball over Amp Md Abd Rahman.

Menglait FC grabbed the lead again through Ak Md Nurhikman Pg Rajid when he curled a free kick from the right side to beat the Kilanas FC goalkeeper in the 64th minute.

Ak Md Sallehudin completed his hat-trick in the 79th minute after another mistake by Amp Md Abd Rahman to give his team a two-goal cushion at 5-3.

Kilanas FC were then given a lifeline in the 86th minute when Kurmin got his second goal of the night when he was left unmarked inside the box to score past the Menglait FC goalkeeper.

Menglait FC defended desperately in the closing minutes of the game as Kilanas FC pushed forward in search of an equaliser. But it was not to be as Menglait FC held on for the victory.

"We came here ready to win and got the points. The players really gave it their best and showed good motivation. That helped us to win," said Wan Mazini Mohd Zelani, the assistant coach of Menglait FC.

"Kilanas FC gave us a good fight but well done to our players as they really did well tonight (Tuesday)," added Wan Mazini.

Today's games will pit league leaders QAF FC against AM Gunners at the Balapan Track and Field in BPL I action while Indera FC will take on Majra FC at the Berakas Sports Complex.

Both matches are scheduled to kick off at 8.15pm.
