Rams Overcome Stags

While I have been bouncing around Central and East Java, there is plenty of stuff going on in Singapore.

On Wednesday, Nicolas Velez hit four for the Warriors as they defeated Albirex Niigata 4-0 at Jurong East Stadium.

On the same evening, DPMM kept their recent fine run going as they defeated Hougang United 1-0 at Hougang with the goal coming from Azwan Rahman 13 minutes from the end. After a couple of convincing home wins against the Singapore and Malaysian development sides, coach Steve Kean would have been just as happy with scraping the three points on the road against one of the better teams in the country.

Home United are rattling in the goals at the moment...they defeated Tanjong Pagar 4-0 at Bishan with Lee Kwan Woo, Dakyung Kwon, two, and Shafiq Yacob doing the damage. On the bench for Tanjong Pagar, but unused, was Lucas Jester...I kid you not!

Jorg Steinbrunner seems to be doing a fine job at Geylang International. He has reversed their slide and they managed a 1-1 draw at Balestier Khalsa. It was the home team who had taken the lead between you know mean you don't know? What planet are you on? Goran Ljubojevic if you must know but Felix Ezequial equalised for Geylang with about 10 minutes remaining.

And to the shock. Champions Tampines going down 2-1 at home to Woodlands Wellington.  Chang Jo Yoon had given the visitors a 10th minute lead but Shahdan Sulaiman equalised a few minutes into the second half. 

Atsushi Shimono restored Woodlands advantage just minutes later and they held on for a famous victory, one that perhaps justified coach Darren Stewart's rejection of a switch to Newcastle Jets in the ALeague.It was only the Rams second win of the season and the three points saw them climb to 8th place.

Those fascinating results leave the table looking like this:

1 - DPMM 8 6 1 1 20-4 19
2 - Tampines  8 6 0 2 18-12 18
3 - Warriors 8 5 2 1 15-6 17
4 - Home United 8 5 1 2 18-8 16
