Sengkang's woes continue...

SHORT SCRIBE OF THE GAME Just back from Hougang Stadium and saw Sengkang Punggol crushed out of the Singapore Cup by Albirex Niigata (S). 1-0 was the scoreline and Ryuta Hayashi scored the only goal in the 50th minute and Shahir Hamzah, again, was sent off by referee Sukhbir Singh in the 81st minute. While Sengkang thought they had levelled the game later through a Duncan Elias's spot-kick but only to be ordered to be re-taken due to some infringement, the second time was proved to be disastrous with the penalty being saved by 'keeper Koto Kobayashi. SOME PICTURES FROM THE GAME
