Saturday 15 March Review


BEC Tero 3-2 Buriram Utd
Chainat 1-1 Sisaket
Suphanburi 2-0 Bangkok Glass
Chonburi 3-3 Ratchaburi
Muangthong Utd 1-1 Police
Army 1-1 TOT

Buriram ended a disappointing week with a 3-2 loss at BEC Tero. It appeared that Buriram were going to end the week on a high when Jay Simpson's penalty gave them the lead midway through the first half. However, goals from Iwamasa and Koomson shortly before the break swung the tie in the favour of the Fire dragons. Altobelli equalized in the 52th minute but a long range strike from Peerapat won the points for Tero.

The highest scoring game of the day came at Chonburi. The much improved Ratchaburi were 3-1 up at Chonburi with 11 minutes remaining. The had found a chink in the Chonburi armour as all three of their goals came from crosses from the right. Chonburi did fight back for a point with Wanit being the unlikely savior of the day.

Muangthong still top the table but they'll have been perturbed with a 1-1 draw at home to Police. They couldn't capitalize on an early Durovski penalty and they were punished midway through the second half when Surachat's glanced header earned Police a point.

It also ended 1-1 at Army United. Tanakorn pounced on a defensive mix up in the 71st minute to give Army the lead but a Kawamura header seven minutes later ensured the spoils were shared.

The 1-1 theme continued at Chainat v Sisaket. Joe 5 yards gave Sisaket the lead but Nikezic soon cancelled that out. 

And finally we have lift off in Suphanburi. After a lot of pre-season hype, the War Elephants finally claimed their first points of the season. Two quickfire goals from Bireme Diuof around the hour mark were met with massive relief around the stadium. Two yellows for Puritat helped Suphanburi wind down the clock as Glass played the last 28 minutes with ten men.

Division 1

Roi Et Utd 1-2 Krabi
Ang Thong 4-0 Pattaya Utd
Bangkok FC 3-2 Ayutthaya

Pitiful Pattaya remain bottom after a 4-0 drubbing at Ang Thong. The newly promoted side's four goals came from foreigners. Nobu got the first before Obatola and Gaston twice completed the rout. The table this morning has Ang Thong on top and Pattaya at the bottom.
Krabi finally got their season up and running with a 2-1 success at Roi Et. It was a Roi Et old boy who was the match winner with a 91st minute winner. Erivaldo's first goal for his new side was met with a muted celebration.
The man who Erivaldo replaced at Krabi got a double for his latest club yesterday. The much travelled Valci Junior bagged two goals to help Bangkok FC come from behind to beat Ayutthaya 3-2.
