Persitara North Jakarta v Persita Tangerang 2-2

Not a bad first half up at Kamal Muara.

Benson gave the vistors the lead after about 18 minutes when half the Persitara defence posed for a photograph. Two minutes later Kurniawan DY beat the offside trap, something I don't think I've written many times before, and finished cooly.

Ilham Jayakusuma scored a second for Persita while the defence made like trees and didn't move for a moment or 6.

Second half and someone who aybe called Swakely took advantage of the slack defending that has marred this game to make it 2-2.

Itmi Dickson went close for Persitara and his later cross was missed by Yaso when it was easier to order a pizza, read War and Peace and score.

On 60 minutes a water bottle thrown from the Persita fans struck a linesman and play was held up for a few minutes. The linesman seemed most reluctant to resume his position and only did so when Persita coach Benny Dolly joined him on the touch line in front of his own teams fans.

The Copa Indonesia tie earlier in the season between these sides was marred by trouble also. Looking at the home fans already manning the fences you sense this isn't over yet.

Ernest, the giant Persita striker, is brought down in front of the Persitara support and even before he has hit the ground the water bottles are being thrown by the morons in the crowd. It's all getting a bit scrappy now.

With 10 minutes to go Kerry of Persita was sent off for a couple of rash challenges. Not sure it was worth a straight red though. Just to even things up the ref red cards home striker Pascal on 86 minutes.

A game that started brightly degenerated in the last 25 minutes into a nothing spectacle. Persitara captain Kurniawan DY spent some time playing in Italy. He must have wondered what the hell was going on.
