LAHORE - Faisalabad-born winger Ali Adeem Shahzad came out as hero from the field as the 156th match of Pakistan Premier Soccer League 2008 saw PIA overcoming PEL 2-0 in second leg at Railway Stadium here Thursday. The 90-minutes tense match saw Adeem, former player of Wohaib FC, in fine touch scoring the opener and created the other for opportunist striker Shakir Lashari. It was seventh win for Tariq Lutfi-managed team which collected 28 points from 23 matches while PEL managed 27 points from 21 games. PIA, with Shakir Lashari and Nazeer Ahmed taking responsibility up front, were the first to settle down and tested keeper Ahmed Shahzad with long-range drives. PEL occupied lax approach in initial period and suffered a set back when they lost their star midfielder Muhammad Rashid in the 23rd minute, replaced by Amir Hamza. The same minute saw PEL go down when PIA punished a defensive blunder. A right flank move caused panic in PEL's area, PIA's Shakir and Nazeer were not able to clip the ball in and when the ball fell towards Adeem, the winger slammed the ball into left corner, giving Shahzad no chance from hand-shake distance. PEL got their first chance in the 29th minute but striker Din Badshah failed to head the ball properly off skipper Ijaz Sarfraz's cross. PIA's Shakir broke off-side trap and forced chance in the 31st minute off skipper Nasr Ullah Khan's cross but the chested-down ball drifted away from his control. Nasr Ullah might have scored in the 43rd minute but Shahzad was alert for PEL under cross-piece. PIA led 1-0 at interval. PIA sent Zeeshan Ali, hat-trick maker in first leg's 5-0 win, in second session but he failed to create any impression. PEL, on the other hand, were not able to penetrate through tight PIA's GK Bilal Rafiq and defenders Abdul Jabbar, Haji Muhammad, Zubair Moazzam and Ali Ehsan. PIA's second goal emerged in the injury time. Adeem evaded three tackles when he ran through from left wing and cut the ball low across the area. Unmarked Shakir Lashari, on far corner, was on hand to fire his 15th goal of the event. With 2-0 win, Pakistan's most successful outfit PIA recorded three valuable points as well as completed double over PEL, winning both legs. Friday (November 21) fixture: WAPDA v NBP (Railway Stadium, Lahore : 2.30 PM), PMC v Pak Steel (PMC Ground, Faisalabad : 3 PM)
