Botak 5-0 Kenneth team: Botaks ran riot as Alex bids farewell, Liang under fire
Botaks continued to show few signs of missing Liang as Mian-ager's young Botaks swept aside Kenneth's team 5-0 to get their summer campaign off to the perfect start at the ITE east stadium.
Star defender Liang may have been missing due to other commitments during the summer but the rest of the squad have certainly pulled together, racing to the top of their form with four wins from five games.And it was another composed and collected display to see off the challenge of Kenneth's team, coached by Singapore national swimming coach Mr Albert who was more often than not, using his hands more than his feet. An own goal from Kenneth, deflecting in Alex's shot on 51 minutes, set the Botaks on their way, with Teoh doubling the hosts' lead after the thrid quarter and substitute HB adding a third in stoppage time. Botaks just needed to retain focus for the closing stages to ensure a perfect start to their summer campaign. Choo flashed a diving header just wide of the far post following a determined run and cross from Alex down the left. In stoppage time, Teoh swept home from close range after a neat exchange between Alex and Mel. Du's clinical finish made it 5 before the final whistle was blown. However, Botaks had already done more than enough to deserve another comfortable victory of what has been an impressive, and perhaps ominous, start to a campaign which was supposed to offer little chance of success without their unavailable Liang.
