Harsh reality

24th April: Kroniz Fc was defeated by Gannas Fc 0-3 at kebajikan field today. The margin of defeat was harsh on kroniz, who missed several chances of their own.
In what were admittedly a fine day conditions, kroniz flattered to deceive in the first half, dominating the opening 20 minutes without finding the net.
Kroniz plyers looked certain to do so inside those 20 minutes - just as they had done in the last game.
Pg Eddy, Dodoi, Nasrin and Alinordi all went close but Gannas's blanket defence stood firm.
Their attacking threat had been virtually nil but that changed in the 24th minute when Gannas striker managed to beat the offside trap and scored close-range with the keeper beaten.
Kroniz were becoming increasingly sloppy, with a suicidal pass going unpunished and a lack of communication among the players.
Kroniz  lost  Dodoi due to injury moments later and hobbling off and Nasrin carried off the pitch in worryingly innocuous fashion.
With 20 minutes remaining, Korniz lost it all when Gannas scored their second and third goals. Final score: Kroniz Fc 0 Gannas Fc 3

Losing battle

8th April: R11 Fc condemned Kroniz Fc to another defeat of the season at PTEK Field.
Central midfielder Aliuddin fired home from a distance in the 15th minutes after exchanging excellent passes in the early part of the game however after that kroniz struggled to find any real fluency.
R11 started the fightback with two quick goals in the 25th and 28th minutes after two school boys mistake by Kronizs defenders.
Kroniz battled all the way to the whistle in a desperate attempt to rescue the match but R11 were good value for their win. 
Kroniz were buoyed by the knowledge and optimism that for the first time in many games that 15 players were available for selection. 
However Kroniz usually central defenders were not available and the initial solution was to promote Nasrin and Hj Radzi to the role with central defender taking over at the back, although the move patently did not work.
However, Kroniz  dominance in the early part of the game was fleeting and the lead not only evaporated, but was overhauled in the space of three minutes in the first half.
The second half Kroniz were in positive mood and twice within a minute forced saves from R11 keeper, the first of them less than convincing.
The match was becoming increasingly open to leave both defences under pressure, Kroniz refused to throw in the towel, but simply did not have the craft or guile to get themselves back on terms. Kroniz Fc 1 - R11 Fc 2.  Scorer: Aliuddin

Sprited win against UNISA FC

1st April: Midfielder Gnal was Kroniz's unlikely saviour as he curled home a beautiful top corned  winner to ignite his side's survival battle in their friendly games at PTEK field.
The 1980's under 16th Piasau Garden Belait champion player has found the net only once this year but the importance of his latest strike could not be underestimated.
His side appeared to have been frustrated in their bid for victory despite the visitors throwing everything in the latter stages of the second half after Pg Eddy had equalised Unisa fc opener in the 25th minute.
But when the impressive Gnal challanged Unisa defender to rolled the ball back from the byline the midfielder switched it on to his stronger left foot before smashing a curled shot past Unisa goalkeeper.
Whether this latest effort will be enough to keep Kroniz in the top flight against younger opponents remains to be seen but it lifted the sprit of the team.
More importantly, it will boost the confidence for Kroniz keep on fighting before retirement at aged 60.
More often than not Kroniz had no cause for complaint when they took the lead after just 15 minutes.
Matusin's flick-on appeared to catch three Unisa players in a day dreaming position on the edge of the Unisa penalty area, Pg Eddy  reacted quickest to shoot past Unisa keeper for the first goal.
Apart from few' early shot Unisa had not threatened but out of the blue their winger broke free on the left to equalised in the 25th minute.
In the 35 minutes Gnal had the ball in the net after looping a shot over Unisa keeper although he was challenged on the edge of the area for kroniz second goal.
In the 40th minutes, Kroniz was awarded a penalty after Metusin was tackled in the penalty box and Bab gratefully took the responsibility but he could only banished the ball well off target. 
In the first half the game ended 2-1 to Kroniz.
As expected the match opened up after the break, with Unisa pounding at kroniz's defence but they stood their ground.
Both team could killed off the game but to no avail. The game ended with Kroniz FC 2 -UNISA FC 1.
