The Seremban Lions recorded their first win of the season in the Akaal Premier League (APL) which got them lifted from the bottom of the table to seventh spot, now occupied by Beruntung Hill Twin Lions.
It was a bad day for the Kampung Pandan Lions with their squad plagued by injuries. The loss of their enigmatic Captain Rahul to a reoccurring ankle injury cost them dearly as well. Adding to the blow was the absence of Taran Jr. due to a knee injury but they were glad to get Nishaant back from an earlier injury.
Rawang Akaal Warriors suffered an equally bad day, losing both of their games on Matchday 4. Meanwhile, Selayang Sardars and the Klang Rangers were back in their winning ways recording both wins each for the day.
Surprisingly, Kg Pandan Lions and Pulapol Eagles saw the first match in this this season to end with a scoreless draw.
We are now half way through a total of eight match days but its still too soon to say who the eventual champions are going to be, as well as who would don the Golden boots. Stay tuned for more coverage.
APL, a Malaysian-made futsal league held in Kuala Lumpur for Sikh boys and girls, is organised by the Akaal Sports Academy (ASA), a sports non-government organisation headquartered at the Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Kampung Pandan in Kuala Lumpur. Asia Samachar is the tourney’s media partner.
Pulapol Eagles topped the league in 2015 and 2016.
