Table toppers Revenant FC continued to dominate the board at the top of the table as second placed Trebuchet FC were held by a resurgent Senso SC today. Revenant FC came back from behind to avoid a seemingly forgone defeat in a dramatic turnaround against New Ecclesia to register a hard-found 5-4 win.


Moakaba opened the account for Revenant in the 14th minute but Arishilu netted three goals in eight minutes while Pangertemsu scored another goal to give New Ecclesia a 4-1 lead. Arishilu scored in the 22, 25, and 30 minutes to complete his hat trick while Pangertemsu scored in the 33rd minute. Mayangnok scored for Revenant in the 41st minute and the score line remained 4-2 in favor of New Ecclesia at half-time.


Revenant FC, however, recovered from the first-half debacle as they reorganized to not only cancel the deficit but also score the decisive winning goal to maintain their position at the top.


Rongsenchiba scored twice in the 58th and 70th minutes to seal the deal for his team. Moakaba also scored his second goal of the match in the 66th minute to equalize the deficit.
