Hougang United made it three wins in their last five Great Eastern-YEO’s S.League outings on Thursday after beating an understrength Harimau Muda 4-1 on Thursday.
Igor Cerina got the Cheetahs on their way when he opened the scoring after just four minutes, before he added a second in the 12th minute when he headed home a right-wing freekick.
Substitute Basit Hamid then scored shortly after coming on to make it 3-0 two minutes after the hour mark, and he too grabbed a brace 15 minutes later when he met a cross from Jerome Baker with an acrobatic volley.
Harimau Muda did manage to pull one back three minutes from time when Farizzuan Azhar scored from a tight angle, but it proved to be little more than a mere consolation.
Over at the Bedok Stadium, Geylang International claimed a 1-0 win over bottom side Courts Young Lions.
The only goal of the game came in the 41st minute when Yasir Hanapi played a brilliant through-ball to Jalal, who raced through before coolly slotting past Syazwan Buhari to hand his side all three points.
