The second season Akaal Premier League (APL) kicked-off in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday with the two top teams from last year – Rawang Akaal Warriors and Pulapol Eagles — maintaining an unbeaten run after two matches.
The football tournament for Sikh youth under 12, with an allowance of two players under 14, saw 29 goals scored and three yellow cards on day one, after the nine teams making up the league played two matches each.
Klang Rangers and Kampung Pandan Lions also retained an unbeaten streak at the close of the Match Day 1 on 17 July at the Akaal Arena, the futsal field at Gurdwara Sahib Jalan Kg Pandan, Kuala Lumpur.
After its successful stint in December 2015, three additional teams are stepping forward for the challenge. They are the Seremban Lions, Selayang Sardars and Klang Rangers.
The original six — Pulapol Eagles, Rawang Akaal Warriors, Pandan Village Lions, Beruntung Hills Twin Lions, Iron River Kings and Titiwangsa Panthers — will continue with their campaigns from where they left off last year.
