Indera SC grabbed the first piece of silverware this season in the curtain raiser DST Sumbangsih Cup after winning 2-0 against MS ABDB at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium last night.

Indera SC abandoned their yellow jerseys for a black strip while the MS ABDB players were clad in green and not in their usual black and yellow.

Goals from Sam Frank and Hamizan Aziz bin Sulaiman ensured the title win for Indera SC.

The army stole an extra yard of space and nearly gave the crowd a major lift but slippery conditions may have caused all sorts of difficulties at the crucial moment.

They were reduced to half chances and could not quite find a way to break through a relatively comfortable defence. On the other end, an exciting move from one of Indera SC’s width players nearly gifted the perfect icing of the cake but there was no team- mate in sight to make the opportunity count.

By the final few minutes of regulation time, rain was starting to pour down heavily and Indera SC were relieved to see it go over the line.

Presenting the Champion’s Trophy and Sumbangsih Cup to the winners was Hj Suhaimi bin Awang Hussain, Chief Executive Officer of DST.
