Two Late Goals Fire Balestier to Top Spot

Two goals in the last ten minutes enabled Balestier Khalsa to overcome some stubborn resistance from Woodlands Wellington in their Great Eastern-YEO’S S.League clash at Toa Payoh Stadium on Sunday.

South Korean striker Kim Min Ho and winger Ruhaizad Ismail netted in quick succession to send the Tigers to the top of the league standings and condemn their opponents to a third successive defeat after five rounds played.

The dismissal of first-half substitute Zulkiffli Hassim failed to dampen the spirits of the 1,913-strong partisan crowd, as the Tigers continued their fairytale league season under the stewardship of Australian head coach Darren Stewart.


Fans Celebrate as the Tigers Went Top After Convincing Win Over the Rams

Unbeaten Balestier Khalsa dominated Woodlands Wellington and came away with a 2-goal win at the Toa Payoh Stadium. The goals came late in the game scored by Kim Minho (81st) and Ruhaizad Ismail (83rd) who is now BKFC's leading goal scorer with 2 goals.

The win put Balestier Khalsa top of the League table first time this season. The Tigers had most of the possession and goal scoring chances for much of the game. After the late goals, the Tigers ended the game with 10 men when Zulkiffli Hassim was sent off at the 90th minute. The club officials and fans were absolutely ecstatic after the win.


Zulkiffli Strike Keeps Balestier Unbeaten

A little piece of individual magic from Zulkiffli Hassim was all that separated his Balestier Khalsa team from Hougang United as Thursday evening’s encounter at Jalan Besar Stadium proved incredibly close.

With 76 minutes gone, Zulkiffli received the ball at the edge of the Hougang area before twisting and turning past his defender and releasing a powerful shot beyond the reach of Fadhil Salim.

That strike was enough to give the Tigers all three points to maintain their unbeaten record, taking them one point and one place above Hougang, who now stand third in the league table.

But Nenad Bacina’s Cheetahs would be aggrieved not to get something out of the match, having put a fair bit of pressure on their opponents’ goal and were looking the better of the two sides in the second half.

This match was one for the purists, as not many goalscoring opportunities were created, nor was there a lot of goalmouth action.
