Impetus comeback to draw

27th: Kroniz's challenge for excellent suffered a blow as their late rally was only enough to secure a draw at Kebajikan Field against The Army Engineer Squadron Fc.
AES Fc were 2-0 up just before the hour mark when they capitalised on Kroniz's lack of speed in defense with two quick straight forward goals.
Kroniz staged a comeback with goals in the 70th minute and 78th both from Pg Eddy, but they could not find a winner.
Kroniz were in need of a lift following defeat from last week game, but they made the worst possible start as AES Fc took the lead after only 10 minutes.
AES players was allowed the space to broke forward with their speed and sending in a dangerous delivery that resulted in both goals.  Kroniz's defensive frailties were laid bare with AES young and full of stamina players.
Although AES gain more possession but they were struggling to get a proper foothold and kroniz's showed some threatening signs with a few glaring misses. 
Kroniz should have taken the lead when the ball dropped to Metusin right in front of goal, but the midfielder could only strike it straight into the sky.
Kroniz continued to press, Gnal seeing a cross but his shot come off his legs away from goal.
AES with the availability of thirty players was on rolling  substitution through out the game in an attempt to give their side more attacking impetus.
With two goals behind and no luck in front of goal kronizs seemed to be fading, but a slick move saw them suddenly pull a goal back through Pg Eddy, who played a one-two with Alinordi before turning and rifling a shot beyond AES keeper.
The goal lifted kroniz up and began pouring forward and eight minutes after Pg Eddy's strike they found a leveller, with the pilot again the scorer.
Alinordi looping cross hit the post and AES defence was unable to deal with the rebound before Pg Eddy bundled it over the line.
Kroniz now looked the more likely winner and sent a succession of balls into the AES box, but there was no way through.
Metusin free kick at the death of the game saw his shot inches over the bar as AES hung on for a vital point.

Inevitable lost for Kroniz Fc

18th Mac: Kroniz's  striker Alinordi fired a 85th minute shot to draw the game level but was ruled out by the referee in a frustrating game for Kroniz at PTEK field against Jerudong Senior Fc.

Its was a frustrating game for kroniz with the unavailable of players for the third time.

Jerudong Senior took their few opportunity to turned the tide and scored late in the first half with a sweetly-struck goal from the right at a tight angle.
The second half doesn't fair any better for Kroniz, as JS players capitalising on confusion in the kroniz defence to lead 0-2.
Not giving up Pg Eddy reached a lovely ball from Hj fendy  cross just outside the the penalty box who powered his shot from the edge of the area to closed the gap 1-2. 
As Kroniz continued to press forward for the equalizer their effort was shortlived when Kroniz conceded a free-kick just outside the area when Pg Nizam shoved JS player in the back, the JS player blasted the set piece through the wall to the surprised of Jamri and Jul on the goal line for JS to lead 1-3.
After that goal, Kroniz were more incisive in attack and their reward came in the 80th minute through Pg Eddy once more as he saw the ball bounce around the left post allowed him to power home with a header.
A late flurry from Kroniz was futile as an 85th minute goal was judged offside to the protest of kroniz players.
A series of hair-raising moments in the JS area saw Kroniz subdued by some desperate defending by JS player to held on to the win.
The game ended with a lost to kroniz 2-3. Scorer Pg Eddy (2)

Thrilling Encounter vs Starfam Fc

11 Mac: Alinordi scored  hattrick in a thrilling encounter at the Kebajikan Field as Kroniz held on for a priceless victory.
Kroniz were second best for much of the first half as  for the second game only 12 players were available for selection including a few injured players. In also for the second time kroniz only played with 10 player in the beginning of the first half. 
However with determination and smart game plan Kroniz veteran players deservedly took the lead through Roslan only for Starfam Fc to draw level soon after. 10 minutes before half-time Alinordi managed to scored for kroniz to lead 2-1 before half time.
The match really got going in the second half as Starfam Fc drew level again before Arch netted the third for kroniz. Not long after that Starfam scored again to level 3-3. 
And it was certainly the visitors who provided most of the attacking threat with their fit and young players, kroniz defenders and keeper was forced to repel a barrage of balls fired into his box.
Kroniz welcomed back Pyan after five weeks out injured was also handed a rare start, after he returned from holiday in  Australia.
Kroniz continued to press and Alinordi scored another from another terrific delivery by Kroniz midfield, but Starfam fc shocked their opponents by drawing level again to 4-4.
A lovely ball from Roslan found Arch in acres of space down the right and he took the ball to the byline before pulling back and could not miss from three yards for kroniz to lead again 5-4.
Just when kroniz seemed to have taken a stranglehold on the match, Starfam Fc pulled one back, and it could not have been simpler as corner kick picked out the head of the towering Starfam's player to level 5-5.
However, with a "never say die" attitude Kroniz  did manage a sixth in the 81st minute, Alinordi was central to the goal, as the veteran  striker juggled the ball from right to left foot before guiding a shot just inside the far post.

There was no doubt which team was on top now, Starfam Fc pushed hard for an equaliser through five minutes of injury time but this time Kroniz stood firm to hold onto the three points. 
The Game ended 6-5 to Kroniz. Scorers Alinordi (3) Arch (2) Roslan (1)

Prolific game at PTE Katok

4th: Kroniz celebrated a 3-0 win against Sutlan's Flight FT at PTE Katok field this afternoon. Attendance for kroniz was disappointing this afternoon when kroniz have to play the game with nine players for the first 10 minutes. They managed to hold SFFT at bay until reinforcement arrived.
It was the first game of the season with the new jersey for Sulaiman, Pg Asmale and Roslan. Their returned to the game is welcome breather for Kroniz. The dependable defender Sulaiman partnering with Alinordi in the center of defense played with commanding integrity.
It was just the result kroniz was looking for to avenged their lost in the previous game. 
Kroniz almost took the lead a couple of times but Yazid and Bob just couldn't converted the chances. 
SFFT responded as well but Kroniz keeper Jul diverted SFFT effort to safety a couple of times as well.
Kroniz finally made the breakthrough in the 25th minute with Yazid after skipping into the area following a one-two with Bob before finding the corner of the goal with his effort. Kroniz lead the first half 1-0.
In the second half, Kroniz continued their fine performance and was rewarded with a second goal this time by Roslan after he had linked up with Aliuddin.
Kroniz continued to turn the screw and Aliuddin made space for himself in the let lose a low  shot beating SFFT goalkeeper.
Given how prolific kroniz had been in the match there were gasps of astonishment around the ground when they just couldn't score more goals. 
The game ended with a win 3-0 to Kroniz. Scorer: Yazid, Roslan and Aliuddin

Unable to salvage anything in the third marathon of games

28th: Kebajikan Team registered victory over kroniz from two goals in the second half at Kebajikan field tonight.
Kebajikan opened the scoring after sixty-four minutes and then another struck late in the second half. 
Kroniz enjoyed a fair share of possession but lacked a cutting edge as they suffered their first defeat in a marathon of games of three games in four days.
Kroniz had picked up only four points from the three matches with a win, a draw and a lost. 
Kroniz looked the more threatening throughout the 90 minutes with  surging run forward from the back to good effect. Kroniz were well marshalled in defence by skipper Nizam and were a constant threat on the counter-attack.
Kroniz almaost got off to a dream start in the rainswept conditions with Alinordi putting in ball in the net in the first half after he pounced on the loose ball but the referee called for an offside. The first half ended 0-0.
In the second half the tried legs of kroniz players finally showed them that they cannot sustained aggressive games and let in two simple goals. 
Missing play makers in the middle of the field kroniz seldom threatened to salvage anything tangible from the match.

The match ended 0-2 to Kebajikan Team.
