Sriwijaya v Persija 1-0

19 mins - Kayemba with a sweet drive from 20 yards gives Siriwjaya the lead. 1-0
23 mins - Deliberate hand ball by Kayemba gives him yellow card, Persija penalty. Agus Indra skies it
30 mins - Ambrizal (Sriwijaya) yellow card for handball
33 mins - Evgeney fumbles a free kick, Charis (Sriwijaya) misses an open goal
36 mins - Atep (Persija ) shoots wide from 25 yards
40 mins - Bambang's snap shot is spilled by Ferry Rotinsulu but Sriwijaya clear
45 mins - Bambang's chip comes back off the back stick

Sriwijaya v Persija 1-0. Kayamba shouldn't even be on the pitch...deliberate handball in the penalty box is a red? Ferry has been the most troubled keeper with Bambang looking lively but I'm wondering why Agus Indra was on spot kick duty? Both keepers have looked nervy.

Second half Persija did enough to get a result, Hamkah Hamza went close with a spectacular over head kick while Aliyudin would have found it easier to score from one yard if he'd fallen on the bloody ball and not tried kicking it.

It wasn't all one way when Zah Rahan strode Moses like through the Persija defence only to see his effort trickle agonisingly past the post. On two other occassions last gasp Herman Abanda clearances saved the Jak's blushes.

So there we are, an all Sumatran final with Sriwijaya coach on target for an unprecedented domestic double as well a personal second Championship in three years.
