    Fadhil Yunus

    His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah ibni His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office attended the first leg of the quarter-final match between DPMM FC and Indera SC in the Brunei FA Cup at the Jerudong Park Mini Stadium in Jerudong last night.

    His Royal Highness was accompanied by Her Royal Highness Paduka Seri Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah binti Pengiran Haji Salleh Ab Rahaman, Yang Teramat Mulia Pengiran Muda ‘Abdul Muntaqim, Yang Teramat Mulia Pengiran Anak Muneerah Madhul Bolkiah and Yang Teramat Mulia Pengiran Muda Muhammad Aiman.

    DPMM FC came back from behind to win 5-1 and will bring back a four-goal cushion in the second leg.

    The visitors stunned the home crowd after taking the lead in the ninth minute through an effort by Mohammad Aimmil Rahman Ramlee.

    It was the first time in six games that the Gegar Gegar men had conceded in the competition.

    But, Indera SC’s joy was momentarily short-lived as Muhammad Shahrazen Said replied for the hosts in the 25th minute.

    The home side found their rhythm and grabbed the lead through Muhammad Hakeme Yazid Said in the 55th minute.

    The battle of former FA Cup winners saw DPMM FC seize control of the game, with Muhammad Hanif @ Abdul Hadi Hamir adding a third.

    The Jerudong-based outfit passed what was potentially a major scalp in their route as club legend Muhammad Shahrazen made it 4-1 six minutes from time.

    His younger brother Muhammad Hakeme Yazid completed the rout just a minute later to ensure that they will be overwhelming favourites for a place in the last four.

    The two sides will contest once more in the second leg at the Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex on November 13.

    The winner of the two-legged tie will book a spot in the semi-finals, with both legs to be played on November 20 and 27.

    Elsewhere, Kasuka FC enhanced their burgeoning reputation as title favourites after steamrolling Panchor Murai 9-0 in the other last-eight match.

    The competition continues today with a mouth-watering clash in the Uniformed Derby between the Royal Brunei Police Force Sports Council (MS PPDB) and the Royal Brunei Armed Forces Sports Council (MS ABDB) and KB FC against Kota Ranger FC.
