HONG Kong Football Club A rallied from a two goal deficit to scrape past in-form Dutch A 3-2 and retain their leadership in the Hong Kong men's First Division at Happy Valley yesterday. It was Club's sixth victory of the season but they had to work harder than they could have imagined after Robert Jansen and Dutch international Walter Drent had put Dutch ahead early in the second half. Dutch held the rampaging Club forwards to a goalless first half but looked like pulling off the upset of the season when Jansen and Drent put them ahead with two excellent field goals. But Club came storming back, scoring three goals in a 12-minute spell. Captain Andy Bough came to his club's rescue by knocking in two goals from penalty corners and Angus Emmerson scored the winner in the final minute. Club lead Kowloon Cricket Club A by two points after the cricketers kept the pressure on the leaders when they defeated British Forces A 4-2 at King's Park. Club B made it a double celebration for the Happy Valley club when they crushed KNS A 6-0. Hong Kong's youth team, the Tigers, are lying third in the standings, one point behind KCC, thanks to their 6-0 thrashing of Dutch earlier in the week. Pasbaan-Pakwatan, the team who led the league standings two weeks ago, dropped two places to fifth place when they were upset by struggling Nav Bharat A who opened their account in an upset 3-2 victory. Shaheen put themselves right in contention for the title with a 5-0 thumping of Pakistan Association A also at Happy Valley joining the Tigers in third spot but on an inferior goal difference.
