The race is on. With just a week more for the teams to prepare for Match Day 6 on  Sunday (23 Oct 2016), it’s getting tougher to close the gap on the Pulapol Eagles, now standing tall with 28 points.

The only team close enough at Eagles’ heels are the Klang Rangers with 25 points.

It looks increasingly tougher to dent the Eagles’ campaign this season when they’ve been on an unbeaten run since Match Day 1! That itself is a feat to talk about for the next few seasons to come.

Pulapol Eagles remains unbeaten after 10 matches in the Akaal Premier League (APL), a Malaysian-made futsal league in Kuala Lumpur for Sikh boys and girls below 12, with an allowance of two players below 14.

On the other side of the table, the Titiwangsa Panthers are still struggling to register their first win but their formation and plan of play do seem to have improved, and there’s potential there to grow into a formidable team even within this season.

With three more Match Days left throughout these next few weeks, the race for being APL winners will most probably be between the Eagles and the Rangers as both these teams are pulling away from the pack.

Akeysh Singh (Pulapol Eagles) has been on searing form all season, pulling away from the rest for the Top Scorer position but Kabir Singh (Selayang Sardar) is fast increasing his goal tally.

Match Day 6 this coming Sunday on the 23rd of October has the mouth watering North Selangor derby between fierce rivals Beruntung Hill Twin Lions and the Rawang Amal Warriors. Encounters in the past suggest a no holds barred, no prisoners taken encounter.

And the Lions rampage as well as the Kampung Pandan Lions meet the newly promoted Seremban Lions in a fight for pride and supremacy.

Much is to be excited about when all teams meet on Sunday. We hope you enjoy our next report as much as we watch these proud youngsters fight for honor and pride amongst themselves.
