Persipura v PSMS
0-0 after 90 minutes. PSMS won the first half 0-0, Persipura clearly won the second 0-0 even though James Koko Lomel did break free in the dying seconds but Persipura managed to recover
Now we have extra time and if it remains 0-0 we get penalties.
94 mins - Markus smothers the ball at Goncalves feet
95 mins - Down the other end Saktiawan curls the ball just wide from 10 yards down the inside left channel
99 mins - Again Saktiwan down the right this time works the Persipura keeper who saves smartly at the near post
101 mins - Koko fails to make a decent connection from 12 yards and the ball trickles out. End to end stuff
103 mins - Persipura captain Ivakdalam replaced by Da Rocha
104 mins - PSMS Mbom replaced by Boy Jati
0-0 Half Time of Extra Time
105 mins - Free kick Da Rocha threatens migrating pigeons
111 mins - Desperate defending in the PSMS penalty area clears an Immanuel Wanggai cross
115 mins - Usep looks dangerous as he dances along the Persipura goal line but his cross is weak
117 mins - Penalties here we come?
120 mins - 0-0 It's penalties...Jendri and Markus are two of the best keepers in the country. Now they stand between defeat or loss for their respective team. A cruel way to end a football match but it's better than watching American Idol, also a cruel way to spend an evening.
Both teams are in huddles while I feed one of my turtles.
