Sriwijaya v Persipura 1-1

For the third consecutive cup tie Siriwijaya were taken to extra time and for the third consecutive tie the Palembang emerged triumphant as they won the Copa Indonesia for the first time in their short history.

Perspiura started strongly and Sriwijaya keeper Ferry Rotinsulu was called on early to hold back the Papuan onslaught but he had no chance when Ernest Jeremiah drove home from an acute angle, crashing his shot in off the underside of the bar.

Keith Kayamba Gums scored in the second half to take the Final into extra time.

Sriwijaya won the penalty shoot out 3-0, Ferry again inspired in goal.

With the Copa secured coach Rahmad Darmawan's men now have their sights on a unique domestic double. Next week the Liga Play Offs begin and they are up against Arema, PSMS and Persiwa.
