First Singapore Cup Upset

Geylang United sensationally crashed out of the Singapore Cup last night, beaten 2-1 by Philippine side Loyola Meralco Sparks (apparently this is the name of a football club and not David Beckham's next child).

The Eagles had taken the lead at Jalan Besar through Michael King just before half time but the visitors equalised in the second half through Mark Hartmann before Min Ho Park scored the winner on 95 minutes.

No mention of attendance on SLeague site which is a shame.

In other games so far SAFFC drew 1-1 with Balestier Khalsa who needed a late equaliser from Kim Min Ho to level Mislav Karolgan's opener while SLeague champions Tampines Rovers made hard work of defeating Cambodian side Phnom Penh Crown needing veteran Aleksander Duric to give them a 4-3 after Khim Borey had given the visitors the lead.

Home United edged leaders DPMM 1-0 at Yishun Stadium, John Wilkinson doing the damage on 40 minutes.

The Singapore Cup continues this weekend with Myanmar side KBZ playing Woodlands wellington at jalan Besar.

Meralco is electric company in the Philippines, which sponsors the team. There's nothing odd about it. Loyola, is the place where the school it represents is located.
