Winning start for Persebaya, Gresik in Super League

Persebaya Surabaya kicked off their 2015 Indonesia Super League campaign with a win on Sunday after beating Mitra Kukar 1-0 at the Gelora Bung Tomo.

The only goal of the game arrived after 16 minutes when Slamet Nurcahyo found the back of the net, handing the Green Crocodiles maximum points in the process.

In Sunday’s other game, Gresik United also kicked off the new campaign with a winning start after defeating newly-promoted Pusamania Borneo 2-1 at the Petrokimia Stadium.

Yusuf Effendi fired the hosts in front four minutes after the half-hour mark, before Rico Simanjuntak doubled their advantage on the stroke of halftime.

Erick Weeks Lewis did manage to pull one back for Pusamania with four minutes remaining but it proved to be too little too late, as Gresik held out for maximum points.
