Sriracha 1-1 Sisaket (Sriracha won 4-2 on penalties)

Sriracha eventually prevailed winning a penalty shootout to knock TPL side Sisaket out of the League Cup.

It was a lively start to the game with both sides intent on attacking. The first goal of the evening went Sisaket's way when a free kick from Suttinan caused confusion at the back for Sriracha and a Diego Pishinin own goal (I think) give Sisaket the lead.

The Blue Marlins responded three minutes later with a goal of their own. Rewat unleashed a right footed shot from the left which curled past the Sisaket keeper into the net.

On the half hour, Rewat almost added a second, but his diving header was tipped over the bar by the keeper.

Maros Bacik came close for the Dangerous Kouprey slicing a shot inches wide as it ended all even at the break.

Sriracha were certainly on the front foot after the interval with Rewat heading wide and Pornsak forcing the Sisaket stopper into another sprightly save.

Preecha really should have put the TPL side into the lead seven minutes from time, but he headed the ball into the ground and over the bar.

With time ticking down, Seiya Kojima hit the visitor's crossbar and extra time was to be played.

It was a fairly uneventful extra 30 minutes and the tie had to be resolved with a penalty shootout.

Sriracha won 4-2 with Ratinho scoring the decisive penalty.

Overall, Sriracha were the better side and if they keep playing like this, I expect them to climb the Division 1 table.

Man of the Match: Rewat Meerian - Was a constant menace for the Sisaket defence.
