With the East Coast and Northern regions kicking off their competitions on Saturday, April 9, a total of 53 teams with about 800 teenagers took to the pitch in four venues across the country.
Playing in their second week, teams in the Klang Valley went to the UKM Bangi fields for two more matches over the weekend.
The appetite for goals is at a peak in the Central region with most teams scoring at least six goals over the two weeks of action.
Gen Pro FC and Ombak FC were the only two to maintain their perfect record, topping Group A and Group B respectively, after two weeks of action, winning all four matches so far.
Ombak FC just keep getting better. In week two, last year’s national finalists trounced their opponents 7-0 and 5-0, and now have the best scoring record in the AJFC with 18 goals, all while keeping a clean sheet.
Two other teams with perfect records last week in Group B, KS Glenmarie United and Wira Semenyih SCFC, failed to keep pace. Glenmarie remains just behind Ombak with a win and a draw but Wira had a total collapse, losing their two matches this time around.
In Group A, Gen Pro FC are still the team to beat winning their two matches, including beating a strong Royal Selangor Club, which had won both its matches in the first week.
Eagle Premier FC dropped points for the first time, and are a close second behind.
A strong MRSM JB joined the action, in Group B, in the second week, having had no matches scheduled last week, and instantly made an impact, winning all three ties.
They now lead the group over last week’s table toppers Melaka Baru FC, who failed to maintain the first week’s perfect record, drawing 1 and losing the other match on Saturday.
In Group A, Terendak failed to maintain the winning run but still top the group with 10 points after 4 matches, a point ahead of Sinar FC who showed intent winning both their matches in the second week.
Ten teams kicked off, all playing in one group with As Daruga FC and Arslan FC taking the lead in week one, winning both their matches though with narrow margins.
The more significant stat is that there were no draws in all 10 matches – with 8 out of the 10 teams feeling the thrill of victory at least once.
The first time that boys from the East Coast are taking part in the AJFC, saw 14 teams participating, coming from Pahang and neighbouring Terengganu.
Two venues in Kuantan, Pahang - Kolej Islam Pahang and Majlis Perbandaran Kuantan – played host to the six matches played on the first week.
A school team from SMK Bukit Goh top Group A, while Elephant Pahang have the edge in Group B.
