Arabic title Al Bayan bossed their opening encounter in Group Two to chalk up a big 12-0 win over Khaleej Times. Basil Al Ajlooni (5) and Abdel Raheem Al Taweel (3) led the way in the scoring stakes for Al Bayan, while Hazem Obaid and Mohammed Abu Obaida scored a brace apiece. Elsewhere, there were one-sided victories for the Sharjah-based Al Khaleej and Etisalat, who overcame Al Ittehad and the ‘Sports Section’ 6-0 and 5-0 respectively. The Security Magazine and Emarat Al Youm also prevailed without conceding a goal with dominant wins over Sharjah Media (4-0) and Dubai Press Club (3-0), whereas Dubai Media Inc and Dar Al Sada shared the spoils in a hard-fought 2-2 draw. Tournament matches continued on Saturday night and there’s yet more action on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, when it’s hoped Khaleej Times will have drastically improved on their initial foray here.
