Black Pearls End BS United Winning Streak

Indonesia Soccer Championship

Bhayangkara Surabaya United v Persipura 1-2 (Thiago Furtuoso; Marinus Maryianto, Boas Solossa)

An eventful game in Sidoarjo saw misfiring Persipura end BS United's five game winning run thanks to Boas Solossa's injury time winner. Marinus, on a yellow, swept home Boas's cross to give the visitors the lead on 52 minutes and he celebrated by taking his shirt off. He spent the rest of the game ruing that decision as he received a second yellow and walked.

Thiago equalised in the last minute, driving home off the underside of the bar from close range, with his third goal in five games but it was not enough to earn the home side a point. Boas's first touch gave him the space to finish with BS United keeper Tri Wahyu beating the ground in frustration. Perhaps he could have done more but credit to Boas for his technique.

Persija v Mitra Kukar 1-1 (Hong Soon Hak; Abdul Gamal)

A much better performance by Persija in their first game post Paolo Camargo. With Jan Saragih taking charge temporarily and Mitra Kukar having Jafri Sastra in the dug out for the first time both sets of players had things to prove and to be fair they dished up a decent game that would leave no fan questioning their commitment.

The Kemayoran Tigers purred, especially in the first half as Ade JJantra and Amrizal Umanailo were given free reign to get at the visitors defence, It wasn't until the second half when Persija finally took the lead, their second goal in two games, with Soon rifling home a fee kick from 25 yards.

Persija weren't able to hold on to their lead and when they failed to clear a corner in the 76th minute defender Abdul Gamal drove home from 20 yards through a crowded penalty area. Mitra Kukar could have won it in injury time. Breaking from a corner, they were three on three against a backpedalling Persija defence but substitute Yogi Rahadian made a boo boo, electing to go for personal glory rather than giving the ball to a better placed team mate.
