CIBUBUR (18 Nov 2011) – Hosts Indonesia picked up their first three points in men’s Futsal when they edged the Philippines 9-5 as Thailand confirmed their place in the semi-finals with a 9-2 demolition of Malaysia at the POPKI in Cibubur.
The Indonesians, who were held to a disappointing 2-2 draw by the Philippines yesterday, put up a better performance this time round scoring the early lead in the second minute through Indra Purnomo before Hairul Ohorella then doubled the score a minute later.
The Philippines then pulled two quick goals by the ninth minute off Misagh Bahadoran and Edward Mallari as Ariel Zerrudo then gave the Philippines the lead for the first time three minutes later.
Hairul’s second goal of the afternoon and then another from Jaelani Ladjanibi put the score 4-3 to Indonesia. Ariel then put the Philippines on level terms with his second striker in 21st minute.
But Indonesia were quick to regroup as they then found the back of the net through Indra (22nd minute), Afif Tamimy (28th), Jealani (35th), Sayan Karmadi (37th) and Stefanus Home (40th) put them well on the way.
Philippines managed to score only once in the second half through Misagh in the 24th minute.
Defending champions Thailand, who had steamrolled over Myanmar 17-0 yesterday; found themselves trailing in the fifth minute to Malaysia when Mohamad Ali Mahat found the back of the net.
But given the quality in the Thai side, it did not take them long to nail to equaliser through Lertchai Issarasuwipakorn in the 11th minute. Jetsada Chudech then put Thailand in front on 17 minute as Suphawut Thueanklang then added the third two minutes later.
The score at the end of the first half was 3-2 to the advantage of Thailand. The second half however is all Thailand.
Suphawut completed his hat trick with two further goals in the 25th and 26th minute as Jetsada then added another goal in 27th minute. The other goals for Thailand came off Sermphan Khumthinkaew (31st minute), Kritsada Wongkaeo (34th) and Apiwat Chaemcharoen (39th).
A late second strike from Mohamad Ali gave the Malaysians little solace as they realised that they will have a lot of work to do against Myanmar tomorrow.
In the women’s division, Myanmar bounced back from their loss to Vietnam in the opener yesterday to beat the Philippines 6-3. The score at the end of the first half was 2-1 with Myanmar having to come back from a goal down after the Philippines had taken the lead in the fifth minute off Cristine Zacarias.
The Myanmar girls were in target through Khin Marlar Tun in the sixth minute and San San Maw four minutes later. Immediately after the break, Myanmar turned on the power for Khin Marlar to complete his hat trick with goals in the 26th and 38th minute.
San San the added another goal on 27th minute as Aye Nandar Hlaing then completed the round with the sixth goal two minutes to the end.
A late rally from the Philippines off Karla Pacifidor (37th minute) and Jocelyn Guico (40th) failed to change the inevitable.
Vietnam on the other hand, picked up their second win with an easy 6-0 routing of hosts Indonesia with the first goal of the game coming off an own goal from Rani Sari in the second minute.
Ngoc Hoa Trinh (5th minute), Thi Duyen Nguyen (7th) and Thi Chau Nguyen (14th) were all on target to ensure that Vietnam were 4-0 in front at the break.
A double in the second half from Thi Thuy Trang Tran (22nd and 30th minute) then ensure the comprehensive victory for the Vietnam girls.
