DPMM FC got back to winning ways in the S.League on Sunday evening after cruising to a 6-1 win over Courts Young Lions at the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium.
It was Young Lions who took the lead in the 23rd minute when Sherif El-Masri played a neat one-two with a team-mate, and fired away a shot that deflected off Abdul Aziz Tamit and into the back of the net.
However, it took the hosts just nine minutes to pull level when Roy O’Donovan lashed a shot home from just inside the box, after the opposition defence had failed to clear a Rosmin Kamis corner.
Rosmin was the provider once again five minutes before the break when his searching ball picked out Rodrigo Tosi, who made no mistake in heading past the onrushing Syazwan Buhari to hand his side the lead.
From then on, DPMM were always in control of the game and edged further ahead in the 56th minute; Roberto Alviz pouncing on a loose ball and dribbling past two men before firing past Syazwan at his near post.
Tosi then grabbed his second of the game – and sixth of the season – with another clinical header two minutes after the hour mark, before O’Donovan made it 5-1 three minutes from time when he nodded home an Alviz cross.
But there was still time for one final hurrah as Azwan Ali broke free and fired past Syazwan in a one-on-one situation, capping off a fine display from Steve Kean’s charges.
With the win, DPMM moved back into second spot on the table and just two points behind leaders Tampines Rovers, who dropped points for the first time this season after losing 4-2 to Hougang United on Saturday evening.
