Grosset shines as Stars demolish Tanjong Pagar United

Wilson Grosset’s hat-trick led a rip-roaring Etoile FC to a dominating 6-1 win over a hapless Tanjong Pagar United FC on home ground at the Queenstown stadium.

The Stars were also humbled on this very ground 20 days ago, when they were defeated by high flying Albirex Niigata (Singapore) 7 - 2.

With those disappointments fresh in the Stars’ minds, they decided to turn disappointment into motivation and showcased their “true” attacking prowess to the crowd who were present yesterday.

Albirex’s Samurai mission disrupted by Courts Young Lions


Albirex Niigata’s stream rolling success was put to an end by the Courts Young Lions with a 1 - 1 draw at the Jalan Besar Stadium last night.
