Attendance: 6,800

The largest crowd of the season saw South China defeat Sun Pegasus 2-1 to win the Canbo Senior Shield. After a week of discord with the match fixing scandals engulfing both Happy Valley FC and Tuen Mun FC, the 6,800 fans in attendance were treated to a thrilling match; no doubt HKFA management were happy with the healthy gate and the end to end game played out.

Sun Pegasus took the lead via Jaimes McKee in the 12th minute with a beautifully placed volley. Sun Pegasus held onto the lead until the 7oth minute when Saša Kajkut equalized; four minutes later, Andrew Barisic scored what proved to be the winning goal. Both players were making their Hong Kong debuts and definitely made an immediate impact. A glorious day for South China was marred when Kajkut was given a red card in the 81st minute for a bookable offense. South China, the top dogs of Hong Kong football for so long, are aiming to make this a winning season and winning the Senior Shield is definitely a step in the right direction.
