The match witnessed by hundreds of spectators took place quite exciting because the host must win to be able to qualify for the last eight of Liga 2.
Since the early minutes of the match, coach Frans Sinatra Huwae's foster children took the initiative to attack the opponent's defense area which was a team from the mainland of Kalimantan.
The attack that was built by Laskar Sultan Adam, the nickname of the Martapura FC team, managed to produce a result in the 21st minute through a goal scored by attacker Qischil Gandrum Minny as a result of cooperation with several of his colleagues.
Unfortunately, that advantage did not last long. Only four minutes later, a goal from Persiba through the foot of Sandi Septian changed the position to 1-1 until the first half ended.
Entering the second half, Laskar Sultan Adam players increased the tempo of attack and tried to master the match so they could get full points as a determinant of qualifying for the next round.
Despite dominating the attack and mastering the midfield, the attack building did not produce results due to the opponent's tight defense.
Position 1-1 draw lasted until the game was over so that the Martapura FC team failed to advance to the last eight.
Martapura FC coach Frans Sinatra Huwae expressed disappointment with the referee's leadership because he did not take decisive action when leading the fight despite an incident that harmed the host.
"We saw referee less assertive because a number of incidents should be given action but left unchecked. Including the opposing players deliberately buying time is not given a warning," he said.
