After a tight opening period, Bedok South took the lead just before halftime when Nur Irfan pounced on a loose ball to score the opening goal. Shortly after the interval, Tengah FC’s Saravanan Krishnamoorthy scored a deserved equaliser after some counterattacking play from his team. With the scores level after 68 minutes, Bedok South’s Firdaus Rashid took a quick free kick from the halfway line and sent the ball across to his midfield partner Azrin Junaidi to convert and net what would turn out to be the winning goal.
The prize ceremony was held at JBS after the match, with the Bedok South Avenue SC players receiving the coveted trophy from Football Association of Singapore (FAS) Vice President, Mr Teo Hock Seng.
