Awangku Md Fakhrul Hibatullah bin Pengiran Hamzah scored a last-minute penalty to complete an impressive comeback in BIBD SRC’s 3-2 victory over Almerez FC in the Brunei Futsal League 2021 at the Multi-Purpose Hall of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex recently.

Almerez FC looked on course for a second successive win after taking a 2-0 lead following first-half strikes from Awangku Md Amirul Haziq bin Pengiran Kamshulzaman and Md Nasyrul Wafiy bin Haji Hassan. However, BIBD SRC had other ideas as club talisman Pengiran Anaqi Sufi bin Pengiran Omar Ali halved the deficit a minute into the second half before substitute Zulhirni bin A Rais drew his team level in the 33rd minute.

Pengiran Anaqi Sufi was named man of the match for a brilliant performance.

BIBD SRC’s victory sees them move level on points with Almerez with three points in Group ‘A’.

Meanwhile in Group ‘B’, PES and Kasuka & Ar Rawda settled for a thrilling 3-3 draw.
