Impressive 1-1 draw

26hb: Kroniz's ambitions of maintaining their winning ways suffered an untimely blow as CHL Family Team ended their winning form in the last game in a draw at UBD field tonight.
Despite dominating two-thirds of the match Kroniz failed to press home to their advantage.
Hamdan impressed once again, extending his remarkable goal scoring spree, but at the other end Jul's goal was breached  in the 60th minute when CHL striker prodded home from close range.
However, another positive note for Kroniz was the ability of ageing players to display a game full of energy, invention and determination against a much younger CHL FT side.
Had Kroniz enjoyed more fortune they would have won the match, having had Alinordi shot in the 80th minutes not miss the goal mouth after a solo run only the keeper to beat.
CHL FT, to give them credit, enjoyed a good spell only 20 minutes after the interval which culminated in their goal. .
But the CHL goalkeeper could do nothing about Kroniz's opener in the 2nd minute as Hamdan continued his scoring run.
Aming's cross from the left byline was partially deflected  but only as far as Hamdan 6 yards out and he smashed home a right-foot shot.
CHL were in danger of being overwhelmed as Kroniz continued to find space in and around their penalty area, blazing over from range on one occasion.
The closest CHL came to producing a response was when CHL winger fired in a low free-kick which Rosli claimed easily late in the first half.
Kroniz showed no signs of fading in second match in two day but Kroniz's inability to seize complete control and score a second gave the CHL hope and the threat of an equaliser turned into a reality in the 60th minute.

Temper flares in the second half as both team keep pushing against each other and the game was stopped for a few minutes after an incident involving Aming and CHL defender.
Kroniz's defenders Alinordi, Kucang and Metussin lead by Nizam continued to impress with their resolute form.
The result put a check, for now, as Monday night there is another game for kroniz with Kebajikan team as Kroniz will harbour hopes they can still pose a challenge with three games in four days.
Final score 1-1 Scorer: Hamdan

A five star performance

25th Feb: After two weeks without any game due to national commitments of Mauiud Nabi and Brunei National Day, Kroniz showed up all fired up for today game at SMSAB artificial field.
Bob scored his first hat-trick of the season as Kroniz turned in a five-star performance to demolish Lambak Fc.
The prolific Kroniz players scored 10 goals their first since 1995 set up.
More importantly for Kroniz it build up confidence as other players also finding the net ahead of tomorrow night game against CHL Family FC from Tutong at UBD field.
Kroniz  will be looking forward to tomorrow game knowing just how much damage they are capable of inflicting.
It has been said so often Kroniz are way below their best this season that it is almost accepted truth.
Five-goals in the first-half salvo gave lie to the theory as the Lambak Fc were pummelled from every angle.
However it took almost 20 minutes before Kroniz scored the first goal by Alinordi. That goal settled Kroniz and scored two more goals by Hj Fendi and Bob before Lambak pulled one back. Two more goals followed with Bob and Pg Eddy to end the first half 5-1.
Going into the second half  Kroniz now appear to strangle the life out of opponents, tightening their grip mercilessly once an advantage has been established.
The method is not foolproof, as Lambak fc pulled another this time a mistake by Kroniz defender Yazid to deflect an own goal.
But Kroniz are pretty good at exerting their power and Kroniz  profited from enterprising flurry of attacks, it was no surprise when they scored again.
This is the game not to forget, goalscoring wise, for Kroniz is having the time of their life.
Over and over again, precise passes driving through the heart Lambak's defence, Kroniz offering their strikers spaces to run wild.
Bob completing his hat-trick on kroniz's next attack. Others players also joining in the fury as Lambak 's defence crumble with industrious work from Kroniz in forward motion. Alinordi and Pg Eddy again joined in to scored. Gnal, once found in a central position barely six yards out, the rest was academic. The last goal scored by Yazid to avenge his own goal to make it 10-2,
More chances came and went. Alinordi must wonder exactly what he has to do to get more goals, 
It did not come. But after such an amazing game, Kroniz manager Bab's smile might turn into a frown when he considers how to stop CHL Family FC in tomorrow night tough game hoping Kroniz would not be complacent.
Scorer: Bob (3), Alinordi (2), Pg Eddy (2), Gnal, Hj Fendi and Yazid.

Thrilling game for Kroniz

9th Feb: Aming and Hamdan  ensured a compelling contest with DPMM Fc management Team in  a six-goal thriller at Jerudong Mini Stadium Tuesday night.
DPMM Mgt made much the better start and they rocked Kroniz  back on their heels by taking the lead with just fourteen minutes gone.
Aming cancelled out DPMM's fourteen-minute opener when gradually worked his way into an advanced position and characteristically shot at the far post beyond the reach of Dpmm keeper as he dived.

Midfielder Hamdan  picked up possession on halfway and he made his way towards the penalty area before cutting inside and blasting a swerving shot past the wrong-footed Dpmm's keeper to equalize 2-2. 
In the second half DPMM step up their game by introducing their younger players and were making the better use of their possession and taken the lead again twice.
Dpmm's third goal when of the resulting free-kick and the striker drilled a cheeky left-foot shot into the bottom corner with Kroniz;s keeper helpless behind his defensive wall.
Kroniz's were dropping ever deeper as Dpmm turned the screw and were in rampant mood to kill the game off. Kroniz keeper and defenders had to worked hard as they tried to held out to keep themselves in the match as the clock ran down.
Dpmm went even closer from the resulting corner when their striker headed on a cross and Kroniz's defenders threw themselves at the ball and orange reinforcements arrived in numbers.
Kroniz were indebted to the woodwork twice when Dpmm  shots beat the keeper but hit both posts and ran safe.
Dpmm's were tireless in their pursuit of a fourth goal, when Dpmm striker struck in stoppage time to turn a fourth home a beautiful cross.
The game ended with 2 - 4 lost for Kroniz.
