Panchor Murai recovered from an opening-day defeat after stunning BSRC to a 3-1 victory at the Tutong Sports Complex last night.
The newcomers gave one of the league most passionate crowds a rollercoaster ride in the first game almost snatching a surprise draw against table- topping Kota Ranger but the latest result no doubt gave their fans a major boost in their pursuit of promotion in the first attempt.
Mohamad Nazirul Azmi bin Haji Ali opened the scoring in the 2nd minute for Panchor Murai before Nur Hazwan Khan bin Asmah Khan levelled matters for the Belait outfit.
Ahmad Asyraf bin Md Saudin restored the lead in the 46th minute before extending a two-goal cushion that his side would not relinquished in the 61st minute.
The win lifted Panchor Murai to third place with three points by virtue of a goal difference.
