Four goals from The Guardians were presented by Muhammad Hargianto, Dendi Sulistyawan, Herman Dzumafo Epandi, and Melvin Platje.

The first half was just starting to be marked by clashes between Bhayangkara FC defender I Putu Gede and Persela winger Riyatno Abiyoso while fighting for the ball in the air.

Both players had to receive treatment, including Putu Gede who had to continue playing for about five minutes with his head bandaged before being pulled off the field.

In the 29th minute, Bhayangkara FC scored their first goal through Hargianto who utilized Herman Dzumafo’s breakthrough pass and made the position 1-0.

Persela Lamongan had a golden opportunity through Malik Risaldi 10 minutes before the end of the first half, but his shot went wide.

The second half has only been running for five minutes, Bhayangkara FC got its second goal through Dendi Sulistyawan due to a blunder by goalkeeper Dwi Kuswanto so the position changed to 2-0.

In the 74th minute, Laskar Joko Tingkir had to play with 10 players after Syarif Wijianto was given a second yellow card for violating Bhayangkara FC player Ichwan Tuherea.

Bhayangkara FC took full advantage of the surplus of players and three minutes later Dzumafo made it 3-0 through his goal that used Platje’s pass.

In the 90th minute, Platje’s header which used Dzumafo’s cross made Bhayangkara FC’s goal 4-0.

This landslide victory for Paul Munster’s team brought Bhayangkara FC to third place in the standings with 62 points. Meanwhile, Persela, which is definitely relegated, is sinking in 17th position with 21 points. (OL-8)
