THE race for the DST Super League title continued to heat up after Indera SC edged Jerudong FC 3-2 at the Berakas Track and Field Complex last night.
Indera SC opened the scoring when the league’s top scorer, Md Azwan Ali Rahman, delivered an exquisite cross-field pass for Abdul Mu’iz bin Sisa, who controlled the ball expertly before applying an emphatic finish in the 11th minute.
Sahrin bin Momin’s free-kick from just outside the box made it 2-0 nine minutes later, but a superb header off the back of a corner from Md Enddy Zulyady bin Awg Sapar showed Jerudong FC were alive and kicking just two minutes later.
Mohammad Khayrun bin Salleh restored Indera SC’s two-goal cushion on the hour mark, although Muhd Abu Bakar bin Mahari did pull one back for Jerudong FC in the 89th minute to force a nervy ending to the match.
Indera SC held on for the win and went to the top of the table with 10 points after four games, meaning MS ABDB now trail by a single point, although they do boast a 100% start to the season and still have one game in hand.
