Weekend Review 17-19 February

Division 2 BKK
Bangkok Christian 0-3 Globex FC
Central Lions 2-1 RBAC-BEC Tero 
Customs Utd 1-1 Kasem Bundit
Samut Sakhon FC 1-1 Samut Prakarn United
Prachinburi FC 2-0 Assumption Thonburi
Chamchuri United 4-1 Luk Issan Thai Airways
Kasetsart 2-0 Nontaburi FC
Krung Thonburi 0-1 Thai Honda
Rangsit FC 0-1 North Bangkok FC

The Friday night opener ended with a surprising 3-0 win for Globex as they dispatched a youthful Bangkok Christian at the Thephasadin.
Chamchuri signalled their early intent the following day as they comfortably beat last season's bottom team, Luk Issan, 4-1. It was honours even in the battle of the "Samuts" as they drew 1-1 in Samut Sakhon. Central Lions and Prachinburi both scored home wins while recently relegated Customs got off to a disappointing start as they could only muster a point from their home game with university side Kasem Bundit.
On Sunday, last season's top 2, Kasetsart and North Bangkok, both got off to winning starts. Kasetsart beat Nontaburi 2-0 while North Bangkok won 1-0 at near neighbors Rangsit FC 1-0. In the other game, newbies Krung Thonburi lost 1-0 at home to Thai Honda.

ACL Playoff
Pohang Steelers 2-0 Chonburi

Underdogs Chonburi can be proud of themselves even though they lost 2-0 to the much fancied South Korean side Pohang Steelers. The Thai team, playing in unfamiliar chilly weather conditions, had a couple of good chances, but the Chonburi attack was well marshalled by the stronger looking Steelers back 4 throughout. A goal in each half was the Shark's undoing as they now have to contemplate life in the AFC Cup Group G with Citizen AA, Home United and Yangon United.

Toyota Cup Final
Buriram United 1-1 Vegalta Sendai (Buriram United won 4-2 on penalties)

Goalkeeper Sivaruck was the hero for Buriram United as he saved two penalties in the shoot out with Japanese side, Vegalta Sendai. Frank Achaempong gave Buriram a first half lead, but it was cancelled out in the second half by a Yoshiaki Ota penalty. The drawn tie headed straight to penalties and it was Buriram United who collected the Toyota Cup after a successful penalty shoot-out.
