Football: Bruneians become first foreign side to win silverware in S'pore

SINGAPORE : DPMM made history on Friday night, becoming the first foreign club to win silverware in Singapore football when they beat SAFFC 4-3 on penalties in the 2009 League Cup Final in front of 5,320 fans at Jalan Besar Stadium.

The Brunei club's feat is even more remarkable considering this is only their first year in the S-League.

SAFFC, Singapore's most successful club with seven league titles in 13 seasons, took the lead in the sixth minute through captain Aleksandar Duric, who headed in an inch-perfect cross from Hafiz Osman.

Determined DPMM didn't let their heads drop and they stunned the Warriors just three minutes later when Croatian defender Rene Komar scored arguably the goal of the tournament.

Receiving the ball on the halfway line, Komar jinked past two Warriors and curled his left shoot shot past helpless keeper Shahril Jantan from well outside the SAFFC penalty area.

SAFFC upped the pressure late in the game and had the better chances, but Vjeran Simunic's men held firm as the match headed to a penalty shoot-out after extra-time.

With the shootout tied at 3-3, stand-in captain Rosmin Kamis fired home the winning penalty.

In the third-place playoff earlier on Friday, Home United beat Woodlands Wellington 4-1 in a penalty shootout, after the match ended 2-2 after extra-time. - TODAY
