10-man Glass rally to win


Bangkok Glass, re­duced to 10 men since the mid­dle of the first half, put on a brave fight last night to shock Chi­ang Rai United 2-1 in their Thai League 1 clash at home.

The Glass Rab­bits were dealt a big blow when Jhas­mani Cam­pos was given his march­ing or­ders for el­bow­ing Phi­ti­wat Sukjit­thamakul a shade af­ter the 20-minute mark.

Chi­ang Rai pounced on the op­por­tu­nity to go ahead at the stroke of half-time when Felipe Azevedo scored.

Bangkok Glass did not give in and hit back with the equaliser in the 63rd minute when Apisit So­raya found the net.

The win­ner was headed in by Su­rachart Sa­reepim two min­utes into in­jury time.

In an­other game last night, Pat­taya United wasted a two-goal ad­van­tage to let hosts Navy walk away with a 2-2 draw.

Pat­taya shifted gears in the sec­ond half when they scored through Mi­los Sto­janovic and Alek­san­dar Jevtic.

Navy pulled one back when Sut­thipng Lao­porn struck late and Pat­taya United skip­per Lee Won-Young gifted the hosts an own-goal two min­utes from time.

On Sat­ur­day night, Bangkok United picked up three points at their home ground, de­feat­ing Nakhon Ratchasima 2-0.

Bangkok United put on an im­pres­sive show as veteran striker Teerathep Winothai put them ahead in the last minute of the first half. Yo­han Tavares scored their sec­ond in the 52nd minute.

Also on Sat­ur­day night, Sukhothai ral­lied from 3-1 down to share a point with Ubon UMT United fol­low­ing a 3-3 draw.

Hosts Sukhothai saw Khap­fah Boon­matun claim a bril­liant hat-trick. He net­ted his first in the fourth minute, only to see Car­los tie the score for Ubon UMT 10 min­utes later.

The vis­i­tors quickly moved ahead through a Taweekul Thon­gon strike be­fore Prat Sa­makrat con­ceded an own-goal to hand Ubon UMT United a mas­sive 3-1 lead at half-time.

Khap­fah was in a spec­tac­u­lar form in the sec­ond half as he found the net twice within a space of seven min­utes to earn Sukhothai a draw.
