Not one of Crown's better performances but they were too strong for BBU and after leading 3-nil at the break, ran out 4-2 victors at RSN this afternoon. Sary Matnorotin netted twice on 9 minutes, finishing off a Santie Koroma pass at the 2nd attempt, and again on 36 minutes. His second goal was a neat first-time finish inside the post following more excellent work from Koroma, who celebrated his 19th birthday yesterday. Sandwiched in between was a well-struck penalty kick by Bin Thierry, on 15 minutes after Shane Booysen had been hauled down by keeper Sos Proshim, as he followed up a Matnorotin shot that was saved. Two goals in six minutes, on 62 and 67 minutes, gave BBU a sniff of a result that was extinguished as Booysen raced onto Matnorotin's pass, rounded the keeper and rolled the ball home on 71 minutes. Game over.
