Bontang PKT have handed PSLS Lhokseumawe a shock defeat in the Indonesian Premier League, triumphing 3-2 in a match featuring three penalties.

Nurkholis Hamdi’s two second-half penalties looked to have wrapped up the win for Bontang as they led 3-0 with just over 10 minutes remaining on Wednesday but PSLS almost pulled off a draw after a brace from Carlos Raul.

The win over PSLS was Bontang’s first victory in April and takes them to 10th on the ladder with nine points.

PSLS (11 points) remain fifth, five points adrift of Indonesian Premier League-leaders Semen.

Yossi Aditya put Bontang in front in the first half at Stadion Mulawarman and when Nurkholis scored from the spot in the 63rd and 79th minutes, the home team looked on track for a comfortable victory.

But Raul took advantage of a defensive error to get PSLS back into the game when he scored in the 84th minute and six minutes later the Argentine-born attacker slotted his spot kick to ensure a nervous finish for Bontang.

The hosts held on, however, to claim their third win of the season, while in the other match, Persebaya 1927 drew 0-0 with Persiraja.
