S.League Match 31
|Opponent: Young Lions
Date: 4th Oct, 1945hrs
Venue: Jalan Besar Stadium
Final Score: 0 -1(Kenji Arai 48″)
|Completely unaware of this match being played due to the irregularities of the match fixtures of late with the Singapore Cup tournament and Young Lions’ recent matches postponement.
Once again whoever scheduled fixtures in the league has done brilliantly to alienate viewers again; just when the stone cold fact that we just aren’t the Top 10 league in Asia.
On the ground, they were humbled by Geylang United days before, the Dolphins bounced back with a nifty win to see them notching a record 27 points (in Sengkang Punggol era).
With 2 games left to play (one against Tampines Rovers), 10th position in the final standings definitely look a yard too far now.
Against a weakened and well fatigued Young Lions, the Dolphins clinched the win from Kenji Arai’s second goal of the season.
An impressive tailend for coach Aide and his team who really outdid their predecessors (including the highly touted “all stars” class of 2009) and surely a platform to build upon for the next season.
