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.
