BRUNEI Polytechnic ‘A’ edged KUPUSB ‘A’ 1-0 last night at the Berakas Track and Field Complex to go top of Group B in the Uni Cup.
The two sides played out a goalless first half, before Ak Ahmad Dasuqi bin Pengiran Haji Sulaiman’s second half effort settled matters, meaning Brunei Polytechnic ‘A’ climbed to the top of the standings in Group B on four points.
Elsewhere, in the afternoon fixtures, UNISSA ‘A’ and UBD ‘A’ shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw at the Berakas Track and Field Complex, whilst UNISSA ‘B’ inflicted a 2-1 defeat on UBD ‘B’ in their first game of the Uni Cup at the Royal Brunei Recreation Club.
Julazni bin Haji Zaini’s goal gave UNISSA ‘A’ the early initiative, but a brace from substitute Mohammad Hafizuddin bin Haji Muhammad for UBD ‘A’ in the second half and Muhd Hibatul Hakimi bin Hj Suhaili’s solitary goal meant both teams walked away from the encounter with a point, allowing for UBD ‘A’ to maintain their position at the top of the standings in Group A on four points.
Meanwhile, UNISSA ‘B’ rallied back from a goal down to come up with all three points in their Group B
Zulhamizan bin Awang Jamil netted the opener for UBD ‘B’, before Muhd Amaluddin bin Jamaluddin and Abd Afiq bin Sahari’s goals turned the result on its head, in favor of UNISSA ‘B’.
