The Hamster’s 7 game winning streak was snapped including the team record 6 straight clean sheets by U-20 candidate Mark Itaas at the CM Arena. The Manila derby was once again the talk of the town and the action inside the pitch did not disappoint the fans one bit.
A controversial penalty in the 5th minute started the scoreline for the hamsters but 2 quick goals from 911s lads ensured that the home team went ahead at the break. An equalizer by Heinrich Steinkrauß at the reset gave the visiting team a glimmer of hope but a brace from 911s winger Lewis Sullivan finally put the hamsters out of their misery. Bonciano Ranada scored a consolation goal and made the game a little bit more competitive till the end. but with the wide difference in possession, this game could only go one way.
“Mark is still very young and this defeat will be a lesson, he will learn because of this.” said gaffer maya_arms, who now needs a miracle on Sunday to have any chance for the division championship.
