Belait District Office (JDB) FT and KB FT will compete in the Belait District Football Tournament final on October 5-6 at the Seria Arena Football Field.

JDB FT defeated Hawa FT 3-0 in the semi-final, while KB FT also beat Hoist FT with the same scoreline last weekend.

Md Fadzil Md Yanie of JDB FT broke the deadlock in the final minutes of the first half match against a stubborn Hawa FT.

In the second half, JBD FT rode on their momentum and scored two more goals through Pengiran Md Sallehudin bin Pengiran Haji Idris and Hamizan Aziz Sulaiman in the 73rd and 84th minutes.

Meanwhile, KB FT started their semi-final match against Hoist FT strongly as Md Azizul Syafiee Tajul Ariffin netted the first goal two minutes into the game. The early goal spurred KB FT to push more on their offence, and Md Azizul Syafiee scored his second goal in the 10th minute, followed by a brace from Nur Hazwan Khan bin Asmah Khan in the 16th minute.

KB FT switched to defensive mode in the second half, and held on to secure their win.

Hawa FT and Hoist FT will compete in the third-place playoff.
