Tuesday, April 5, 2011

TWO penalties in the first half condemned BIBD FT to a 2-1 defeat against Rimba Star FC during their DST Group Brunei Premier League II (BPL II) match at the Berakas Sports Complex last night.

It was a match to forget for BIBD FT defender Ahmad Nazmie Omar who committed the fouls that allowed Md Rafiie Hj Abd Majid and Hazwan Hamzah to seal the deal in Rimba Star's favour.

Though BIBD FT were the better side throughout the match, the bankers only notched one goal via Ak Md Khairul Anwar Pg Md Salleh.

Supporters did not have to wait long for the goals to come by when both teams found the back of the net within three minutes of the game.

It looked like BIBD FT faced an uphill task early in the match when Ahmad Nazmie felled a Rimba Star player within the box.

Md Rafiie stepped up to the spot and he made no mistake to fire Rimba Star to the front in the 2nd minute.

However the Rimba Star followers were silenced a mere minute later when Ak Md Khairul Anwar towered over the defence to drill in the equaliser.

The BIBD FT forward almost provided an assist with a low cross from the right flank but Mohd Saidy Hj Abd Rahman was not able to direct it into the net.

Mohd Saidy had another chance, at the receiving end of Md Salihen Suhaimi's corner kick, but the header was off target.

BIBD FT skipper Shaiful Mohammad curled in a freekick into the opponents' box and Amp Md Badaruddin Asri Amp Hj Said should have done better to give his team the advantage.

The bankers were made to rue the missed chances when the referee awarded another penalty kick in Rimba Star's favour following another reckless challenge by Ahmad Nazmie.

Hazwan successfully buried the ball into the back of the net but the celebration was cut short when the referee insisted the penalty kick to be re-taken.

It only delayed the inevitable as the Rimba Star skipper beat BIBD FT goalkeeper Ak Ahmad Fitri Pg Hj Momin again to restore their one-goal lead in the 24th minute.

Md Salihen tried to put BIBD FT on level terms soon after with a header goalwards but Rimba Star goalkeeper Abd Rahim Awg Tengah dived excellently for the save.

Rimba Star thought they had lost the lead when their failure to clear a corner gave Mohd Shukor Hj Abd Ghani time and space to fire a missile past stunned Abd Rahim.

However the bankers were left disappointed when the linesman raised the flag for an offside.

Both teams started off the second half slowly and neither teams had any clear cut chances on goal.

The BIBD FT supporters grew frustrated with their players' lack of creativity to find the equaliser and started to chant the team's name to muster up their spirit.

Substitute Ak Syafie Pg Hj Shahrum almost repaid their belief by finding the first real chance of the half but it flashed wide off the near post.

A confusion in Rimba Star's box allowed Md Salihen to shoot from point blank but it went straight to the goalkeeper.

He tried to test the goalkeeper again soon after but Abd Rahim rushed off the posts before he could pull the trigger.

Even with four minutes of stoppage time the bankers were unable to break down Rimba Star, who made no notable threats at all throughout the match besides the penalties, and paid the price with the 2-1 defeat.

The result in Berakas last night means BIBD FT slip down to fifth while BPL II debutants Rimba Star soared to third in the 10-team BPL II table.

The BPL II will resume with five matches slated this weekend.

Saturday's sole match will pit Rimba Star and basement team Menglait FC at the Berakas Sports Complex at 8.15pm. Meanwhile, three matches are slated to take place on Sunday at 4pm.

Brunei Shell FT will play host to Muara Vella FC at the Brunei Shell Recreational Club in Seria, while BIBD FT take on leaders Kilanas FC at the Balapan Track (moved to SNHB) and Field in Berakas. Over at the Berakas Sports Complex, Brunei Youth Team will take on Lun Bawang. The late match will feature league namesakes DST Group FT and Perkasa at the same venue at 8.15pm.

REVIEW: Ketara BIBD FC menguasai perlawanan ini dan RIMBA STAR hanya dapat menembusi gawang BIBD FC melalui 2 sepakan penalti (Goalkeeper BIBD FC, juga akan merasa perlawana menentang Kilanas FC satu perlawanan yg bererti, kerana Ak Ahmad Fitri Pg Hj Momin (Pat) adalah bekas penjaga goal Kilanas FC, yg berpindah ke AH United pada 2 musim lepas) Walauapapun, diharapkan pada hari minggu ini Kilanas FC tetap akan memberikan saingan hebat dan mudahan kitani berjaya dan unggul dalam Perdana II musim ini!! AMIN..
