Hougang deny DPMM; Young Lions held by Harimau Muda

Hougang United struck deep into injury-time to deny S.League leaders DPMM FC as both sides played out a 2-2 draw at the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium on Sunday.

Following a goalless first half, it was the Cheetahs who drew first blood ten minutes after the break when Nurhilmi Jasni headed home a cross by Geison Moura.

But in the 77th minute, the hosts pulled level after Adi Said found the back of the net with a header from a corner.

Adi then struck again eight minutes later to put DPMM ahead, and it looked a mere formality that they would see out the remainder of the contest.

Nonetheless, in the fourth minute of injury-time, Moura struck the equaliser to earn Hougang a deserved share of the spoils.

The result meant that the Bruneian outfit were only able to move one point clear of second-placed Tampines Rovers, while the Cheetahs remain sixth on the table.

Over at the Jalan Besar Stadium, Courts Young Lions snapped a three-game losing streak as they played out a 0-0 draw with Harimau Muda.

Despite missing five key players through international duty, including captain Al-Qaasimy Rahman and top scorer Sahil Suhaimi, the Young Lions looked the dangerous of the two sides throughout the 90 minutes.

Harimau Muda were extremely fortunate not to be reduced to ten men four minutes after the hour mark when goalkeeper Ilham Amirullah brought down Jordan Webb as he was about to race through on goal, only to be shown a yellow.

Still, the hosts had only themselves to blame as they did have their fair share of chances; Shameer Aziq missing the pick of the bunch when he headed over from four yards out in the final minute after being picked out by Ali Hudzaifi’s delightful left-wing cross.
