MBPJ survived a comeback by PAUITM to keep pace with the league leaders UiTM. MBPJ found it tough to break thru the PAUITM defense early on in the game as the first quarter ended scoreless. MBPJ finally got their breakthrough on the 18th minute when Mohd Shahril Nizam was at the right place and time to slam the ball in. That goal rattled PAUITM and MBPJ was quick to capitalize on that with two quick field goals on the 20th and 22nd minute by Mohd Hafif Elka to give MBPJ a 3-0 lead going into the half time.
PAUITM came back stronger after the break and began finding space thru the MBPJ defense lead by former national player Baljit Singh. On the 37th minutes Mohd Ariff Engliman pulled one back for PAUITM with a lovely reverse stick goal. The goal spurred PAUITM more and 6 minutes later Mohd Suhail Shafferi’s field goal made it 3-2 at the end of the 3rd quarter.
MBPJ welcome the 2 minute break and came back in the 4th quarter with renewed confidence as they took control of the match. On the 50th min, MBPJ’s Mohd Azrul latch on to a cross and slapped it past the PAUITM keeper to kill off any chance of a comeback by PAUITM and secure his team a 4-2 win.
