BBCU 0-2 Air Force

Air Force more or less stamped their ticket for the 2014 TPL season with a comfortable 2-0 victory over BBCU.

A free kick into the box from Thongchai caused BBCU immediate problems before it was booted to safety by Nantapol.

The host's only real effort of the half came in the 12th minute when an angled shot from Pichit went straight into the arms of Samuel P Cunningham.

Air Force were in control during the first period and they opened the scoring just after the 30 minute mark. Kouassi broke through the BBCU back line and held the ball up before cutting back to Oiboh. The Nigerian drilled his shot onto the post and the rebound was then crossed by Supphakorn for Kouassi to head home.

Kouassi got his second goal of the match in the 53rd minute when he raced through to net after the powerful Supphakorn had slipped him in.

Three minutes later, Julius Oiboh almost added a third but couldn't get his laces through Supphakorn's low cross from the right.

BBCU never looked like recovering and the closest the came to scoring was from a rasping Moussa Sylla 25yard shot that was deflected over.

In the dying minutes, Kouassi almost completed his hat-trick. Yet again, a through ball set him up but his shot rolled paifully across the goal. All credit must be given to Kouassi for staying on his feet after a challenge from the BBCU keeper.

Throughout the season I've been critical of Air Force's promotion credentials but after tonight I must recognize them as potentially worthy Division 1 champions. They have the best keeper in the league in Samuel Cunningham and their robust defence is well organized by Jarulsak. Up front, the lighting pace of Kouassi and Oiboh will always cause problems and Zezinando is the modern day box-to-box footballer.
BBCU deserved nothing out of the match and they played like a side that was just going through the motions. 

Man of the Match: Kouassi Yao Hermann
