A great result yesterday for ITB "B" who have a perfect record with 2 wins out of 2 matche so far. They overcame a resilient UNISSA "B" and they scored three goals in the second half through Ak Muhd Muez (48th min), Mohd Sarif Mahmud (69th min) and own goal from Ismail. ITB "B" created a few great chances but they weren't able to hit the target in the first half. UNISSA "B" had a great opportunity late in the first half when they almost scored from a run of play only to have their powerful shot struck the woodwork.
In other matches, ITB "A" redeemed themselves with a 2-1 victory over Brunei Polythenic "B" after the 5-5 draw (against UNISSA "A") in the opening match last week. Haneef Haji Shaminan scored the winner in the 75th min after Hariz Amin of Brunei Polythenic "B" levelled in the 65th min. In the first half, Ruzaini Mahadi of ITB "A" scored the first goal in the 29th min.
UNISSA "A" was held to another draw, a 1-1 result against bottom team KUPUSB "B". Kamarul Ariffin scored for UNISSA "A" while Muhd Rusaini Awang leveled for KUPUSB "B". The result meant that UNISSA "A" is still undefeated but all their three matches have been draws (5-5 against ITB "A", UBD "A" and now KUPUSB "B"). Now it's a must win for UNISSA "A" to win their final match and hope other results go their way in the 5-team group table. The top two teams in each group will qualify for the semi-finals.
In the final match last night, UBD "B" defeated KUPUSB "A" 3-1 in the Group B match. UBD "B" scorers were Zulhamizan Jamil (36th min and 87th min) and Abdul Taif Hj Jais (78th min) while KUPUSB "A" scorer was Zulfaris Salleh (85th min). The defeat for KUPUSB "A" meant that they are also at the foot of the table with 3 losses while UBD "B" scored their first victory in the tournament and they are still in contention for a top two finish in Group B.
Honestly, I'm pretty impressed with the At-tamwil University Cup 2013 especially from the co-organisers ITB. The logistics and even the little things are taken care of and a bit shout out to the volunteers as well. I can see this University Cup to be a yearly thing and even bigger than this year. This is a good example that other organisers should follow. A big thanks as well to BIBD At-tamwil for making this possible for the University Cup.

A great turn out for the match yesterday
Fighting for the ball
A lot of appreciation also for the ball boy
A throw-in effort from ITB "B"
I thought football is a contact sport to an extent *ouch*
