SAF are human!

Singapore Armed Forces lost a five goal thriller at Yishun last night against Super Reds which sees the Korean side move within a point of the uniform giants at the top of the SLeague.

SAF took the lead through Manzur on 17 minutes only for Sin Hyun Ho 40' to equalise with a penalty. Moon Soon Ho gave the home team the lead on the hour mark but three minutes later a Kim Sang Eun own goal made it 2-2.

Super Reds sneaked the victory when Yun Bo Young scored deep into injury time.

Following the defeat SAF coach Richard Bok was mangnaminous saying “Well this is part and parcel of football. It’s a long season, and it’s better to get this out of our system early on. Now we need to regroup, and look forward to the Home United game. I thought it was quite even, we both came out to play good football. The difference was that they took their chances, and we didn’t. But it was good entertainment for the crowd.”

Last year's whipping boys Super Reds have a steely determination about them this time round and despite all the doubts are hanging on in there. It looks like we have a genuine three horse race in Singapore and next up is SAF v Hone United! 2nd v 1st...
