Tampines stunned by Young Lions
Tampines Rovers' Great Eastern-Yeo's S.League title hopes suffered a major dent as they crashed to the Courts Young Lions 1-0 at the Jalan Besar Stadium last night.
Midfielder M Anumanthan struck the only goal of the game in the 16th minute as the Stags found no way past a well-drilled Young Lions defence.
In last night's other game, Warriors striker Fazrul Nawaz spared his side's blushes when he struck a second-half brace to salvage a 2-2 draw with Harimau Muda in Malacca.
Syafwan Syahlan and Mohd Shah Rosli scored a quickfire double for the home side in the 24th and 26th minutes.
Tampines are now eight points adrift of leaders Brunei DPMM (36 points) with a game in hand, while the Warriors moved up to second place on 33 points.
