Kilanas thrash Muara Vella

Saturday, January 9, 2010

KILANAS breezed past Muara Vella FC 6-2 in a DSTGroup Brunei Premier League II game which they dominated for large periods at the Berakas Sports Complex yesterday.

Though Muara Vella grabbed the first goal in the fifth minute when 39-year-old Rosli Ahad exploited some slack defending to score past Amp Md Abd Rahman Amp Hj Abd Kahar, it was the last time the goalkeeper had to pick the ball out of his net in the half.

Throughout the game it was evident Muara Vella were second best in all departments because they weren't as hungry for the ball, nor looking anything at all like the 'Red Giants of Brunei' they claim themselves to be.

Gifting Kilanas space and time, Muara Vella's lead evaporated in the space of two minutes when Ak Md Sukri Pg Hj Jaludin and Md Ehsan Hj Moksin netted in the 25th and 27th minutes.

Receiving a cross from the right, Ak Md Sukri held off a defender and side-stepped another before slotting past Ahmad Zawawi Pengarah Hj Ibrahim on the near post.

Kilanas' dominance in midfield was rewarded when Md Ehsan scored from inside the box after receiving a pass on the right from Zulhilmy Abd Majid, who did all the hard work by dribbling past three players to create space.

Muara Vella lacked support going forward, and their passing at times could only be described as aimless.

Amp Md Abd Rahman produced a fine save from point-blank to deny Md Saidy Abd Rahman in the 40th minute in what was Muara Vella's best chance to equalise before the break.

Muara Vella ended the half strongly by creating two good chances, the first when Abd Azim Zainal shot wide off the bar in the 43rd minute and the second when Sabtu Yahya had a half-volley which went inches wide of the right post two minutes later.

They failed to carry forward their bright play in the second half though, falling further behind after only three minutes of the restart.

Ahmad Zawawi had a goal-kick which was taken outside the area and Md Alikhan Hj Md Yakop's ensuing curling free-kick from the edge of the box made it 3-1, despite 10 Muara Vela players manning the wall.

Creating space after a one-two, Zulhilmy should have got his name on the scoresheet a minute later but shot wide despite being through on goal and only Ahmad Zawawi to beat.

Rosli had a golden opportunity to cut the gap in the 55th minute but his diving header failed to connect on a cross from the right.

Md Hamiduddin Hj Talip scored the game's best goal when his free-kick from inside his own half found the back of the net in the 64th minute. Yahya was booked for a late two-footed tackle on Ak Md Sukri and Md Hamiduddin's free-kick amazingly beat the clueless Ahmad Zawawi.

Rosli scored his second in the 70th minute after receiving a pass from Rosmi Merali on the left but Muara Vella were unable to capitalise on the strong spell they enjoyed after the goal.

Ak Md Sukri saw his shot from inside the box parried away by Ahmad Zawawi five minutes later but there was nothing the goalkeeper could do to keep out a speculative long-range attempt from Md Alikhan in the 83rd minute.

It was 6-2 two minutes later when Ak Md Sukri lobbed the ball over Ahmad Zawawi from inside the box to make up for his previous glaring miss.

Meanwhile at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas, Menglait FC saw off Kota Ranger 5-2.
