Weekend Round-Up 11/12 June

Thai Port 3-0 Khon Kaen
Navy 0-1 Sriracha
Buriram PEA 5-0 Chiang Rai
TOT 1-3 BEC Tero
Samut Songkram 0-1 Army
TTM Pichit 2-2 Sisaket
Osotspa Saraburi 2-0 Police
Bangkok Glass 2-0 Chonburi
Muangthong 2-0 Pattaya

The TPL action this weekend was overshadowed by the bus crash which killed 7 Chiang Rai fans on their way to see their team play Buriram PEA. Rather surprisingly, the game still went ahead as Buriram unveiled their new 24,000 capacity I-Mobile Stadium. Buriram PEA won 5-0. 

PEA are now 10 points clear at the top as Chonburi lost 2-0 at Bangkok Glass. The deadly strikeforce of Sarayoot and Saruta scored one each. That goal was "Jo" Sarayoot's 8th in his last 5 games. BG must be wishing that they could wind the clock back and play the in form strike duo from the very first game. If they could, they'd be chasing PEA for the title.

At the Yamaha Stadium, Muangthong scored a goal in each half to beat Pattaya United 2-0. TOT's guest appearance at the Royal Thai Army Stadium didn't go to plan as they lost 3-1 to BEC Tero. That win for Tero ended a run of 4 consecutive defeats. Police United became the latest team to lose 4 consecutive games with a 2-0 loss at Osotspa Saraburi.

The Army finally won on the road with a goal from Leandro enough to give them a 1-0 victory at Samut Songkram.

Division 1
Raj Pracha 2-0 Suphanburi
RBAC 1-1 Chantaburi
Phuket 4-1 Chainat
BBCU 3-0 Air Force
JW Rangsit 1-3 Buriram FC
Bangkok Utd 1-0 Saraburi
Songkla 5-0 Customs
PTT Rayong 6-1 Thai Honda
Chiang Mai 1-2 Bangkok FC

BBCU got back to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 home win over Air Force United. All 3 goals were scored after half-time with last season’s Division 1 top scorer, Chainarong, scoring two of them.

Bangkok Utd reamain in 3rd place after beating Saraburi 1-0. They are 2 points in front of Songkla, although Songkla have a game in hand.

Up in Chiang Mai, Bangkok FC came from behind to beat their hosts 2-1. Big things were expected from the northern club this season but so far it's not gone to plan. They sit 3rd bottom in the table just above Thai Honda and RBAC. Thai Honda have only picked up one point in their last 9 games and they were hit for 6 at the weekend by PTT Rayong.

Division 2 (Bangkok)
Assumption Thonburi 1-0 Jamjuree
Samut Prakarn United 5-0 Globex
Thanyaburi Asia Utd 1-2 Bangkok Christian
Mapthaput Rayong 0-0 Thai Fleet
Kasetsart 3-3 Raj Vithi
NSRU 4-0 Thai Airways Luk Issan
Prachinburi 0-0 Nontaburi
North Bangkok FC 5-0 Kasem Bundit 

The big game of the weekend ended in a 3-3 draw between Kasetsart and Raj Vithi. All 6 goals were oddly scored in the first half. I watched the highlight clip on SiamSport and witnessed some awful defending from both sides. 
On Monday evening, North Bangkok FC beat Kasem Bundit 5-0. They moved up to 2nd place in the table and are now just one point behind Raj Vithi.
