Home Secure First Half Of Double
It's every schoolboy's dream. You're in the Cup Final, it's heading for stalemate. Then, right at the death, you pop up and score the winner. Arsenal are past masters of this; think Alan Sunderland in 1979 and Andy Linighan in 1993.
In yesterday's Singapore Cup Final it was the turn of Frederic Mendy to live the dream. His goal, two minutes from the end, won the Cup for Home United for a record fifth time and ensured the Protectors half of a domestic double.
It was a hard fought victory with Home picking up five yellows, four of them going to their foreign players, in front of a pretty decent crowd of 3,322.
Next up for Home is the small matter of an SLeague game against Tampines Rovers on 23 November. The maths are simple. Win it and Home United are champions.
