Past Matches: Eagles VS Tigers
By Eagles Admin on 18 March 2012
Out of the 27 times both sides met, the Eagles won nine times, while Balestier Khalsa won 12. The goal difference for the Eagles is -2, while it is the exact opposite for the Tigers of +2.
Statistics like this shows that matches between the both sides has most of the time been a tight affair. Balestier Khalsa started their resurgence in 2011 with Paul Cunningham marshaling the defense. The Eagles lost the first two meetings at Jalan Besar Stadium and Toa Payoh Stadium respectively, before grabbing a brilliant win in the final round at Bedok Stadium.
Coming from two goals down, former Eagle and current Singapore International Hafiz Rahim scored from the spot to narrow the margin. Veteran Syed Fadhil then scored an evil curler, placing the ball beyond Joey Sim’s reach to bring things level. Former striker Nakano Yuta made sure the Eagles grabbed three important points with an individual effort towards the end of the game.
This coming clash will also see former Eagle Syed Thaha turning out for Balestier Khalsa.
