Can you see me grit my fangs? Yes, that's a fan frustration on seeing his precious 3 pointer prey slipped away. Argh! The bird flew away. Okay, that moment's over. Back to the drawing board. :)

I was there excited as ever as Hougang United started the game with a bang. They went off like a cheetah on high and Geylang United's defenses suddenly found themselves in de ja vous when in the 15th minute Jordan Webb latched on to Carlos Delgado through ball and blasted one in with his sweet left.

Second half was not as pleasing as the first half's high. Hougang United's backline started feeling the tides of an eagle's Tsunami as Geylang United's rally started pouring in waves after waves of attacks.

And in the 50th min Geylang United were level 1-1. Korean striker Kim Jae Hong's free kick found the inside of the net. Keeper Ridzuan Hassan was left wrong footed courtesy of an unfortunately deflection.

The Cheetah's had to inject insurgency and pressed on for a goal. Noor Ali had a great chance when he found himself in front of goal but his efforts were well met by Geylang custodian Nazri.

Fadzli Jaffar also had his fair share of goal poaching. The tricky winger produce a long ranger but his shot was tipped over the bar by the Geylang keeper.

But then Geylang United kept returning the onslaught. And on the 66th minute, after some messy scramble in the Cheetah's penalty box, they managed to unlock the Cheetah's paws and slotted one home for the Eagles. Second goal for the Korean striker. Ah Jong. 2-1 the score read.

Geylang United held on to their 1 goal advantage until the final whistle.

Aide Iskandar will not be so happy about the lack of defensive displine. Most of the goals let in this season came from set pieces. So it's back to the drawing board again.

However, big cheers to the Hougang United Supporters Club, it's always never quiet home or away when you guys are around. Keep it noisy guys!

I'll be looking forward the the next home match. Another big cat fight. The Cheetahs vs The Tigers.

Go Cheetahs Go! rrrrrrrrr!
