Persiwa Lose Another Home Game, Young Lions Earn First Point Shock!

Indonesia Super League

Persiwa v Sriwijaya 0-1 (Eric Weeks Lewis)
Persipura v Pelita Bandung Raya 1-1 (Boas Solossa; Rendy Saputra) 23,184
Barito Putra v Persisam 2-0 (Djibril Coulibaly, Yongki Aribowo) 6,475
Persiba v Mitra Kukar 0-0 5,317
Persita v Persib 2-2 (Ade Jantra Lukmana, Cristian Carrasco; Sergio Van Dijk, Hilton Moreira) 24,587

Bloody hell! Persiwa lose another home game and even Persipura drop points! Sriwijaya the clear winners with Persipura and Persib dropping home points. How to explain Persita and Persita. Persita come from Tangerang in Banten province. Before Banten became a new province it was part of West Java, same as Bandung. For this season Persita have been playing their home games in Kuningan which is in West Java. Against Persib however the game was moved to, umm, Bandung. Which means Persita's biggest home crowd of the season was in fact a home game for the away team. So there!

1 - Persipura 20 14 6 0 42-8 48
2 - Sriwijaya 20 13 3 4 36-26 42
3 - Persib 20 12 5 3 45-26 41
4 - Arema 20 12 3 5 40-18 39


Albirex Niigata v Hougang United 2-1 (Kazuki Sakamoto 2; Mamadou Diallo)
Balestier Khalsa v Tampines Rovers 4-0 (Li Qiu, Kim Min Ho, Paul Cunningham, Park Kang Jin)
Warriors v Woodlands Wellington 1-1 (Inui Tatsuro; Atsushi Shimono)
DPMM v Young Lions 1-1 (Adi Bin Said; Fareez Farhan)

11 goals in four SLeague games...and just one scored by a Singaporean?! Anyway massive result for Balestier Khalsa, thrashing champions and leaders Tampines while Young Lions managed to earn their first point of the season in the most unlikely of places; Brunei! The White Swans narrow win over Hougang means the gap at the top is just two points now
