Tampines Champions Again

Drama all the way as usual as Tampines Rovers held on to their SLeague title. Going into their final games of the season both the Stags and DPMM were in with a chance of glory though the Champions did have a one point advantage over the rivals from Brunei.

Tampines were hosting Harimau Muda and it took a 41st minute penalty from Mustafic Fahruddin to earn them the three points that guaranteed them the title.

Meanwhile over in Brunei the home team were not having things their own way. Balestier Khalsa, with their notoriously difficult defence, scored two late goals, 80' and 86', before Sairol pulled one back on 87'. By which time Fahruddin's penalty had made the events across the water academic.

The end of another thrilling SLeague season, this time round without the on field brawls or teams withdrawing. It is up to the Singapore Football Association to start marketing the game, not changing it by introducing more games fans don't want to see or forcing the team that comes bottom to pay a fine.
