LAHORE - Karachi Port Trust (KPT) recorded narrow 1-0 win over defensive-mind PEL at CDGK Stadium while PIA drew 1-1 with Navy at Korangi Baloch Stadium on Tuesday in the Pakistan Premier League Football tournament. Both the matches were played at Karachi. KPT are beginning to emerge as serious contenders in this rangy 141-day show, while four first-half missing of goals, with PEL's keeper Mubarak Ali helpless, may well end up seriously hurting Portmen's bid for the title race but a big sigh of relief showered onto KPT's coach Muhammad Talib after scoreless first-half when reliable-striker Zafar Majeed, who toured England with national team in 2001, opened the space for winger Zahid Ahmed to break the ice in the 48th minute with his third goal of the show. Under Naseer Ahmed, KPT who outwitted PIA 1-0, Pak Steel 4-2 and Navy 2-1 earlier, might have won the match by at least six goals, but poor finishing tarnished their image. On three occasions they failed to steer the ball into cage. There were no goals in second session as KPT earned their fourth successive victory. PIA and Navy shared one point in other match. It was third clash between the two teams in the PPFL 2004-07 history.  Navy held upper-hand last season by winning Islamabad leg 2-1 after 1-1 draw at Karachi. PIA, looking for their tenth national title after last triumph in Faisalabad 1997, were better outfit in a relatively slow paced match, with play confined to the midfield for long stretches of time. The seamen, who captured silver in 1999 National Championship at Lahore, soon went ahead when FIFA referee Jahangir Khan awarded Navy spot-kick. Skipper and famous penalty-taker Muhammad Ramzan made no mistake from the 13th minute golden opportunity by slotting the ball into left corner. SAF Games 2006 gold medallist Shakir Lashari, leading marksman for PIA last season, stopped four-match goal-drought in the 19th minute when he controlled a long ball from the back well to launch a shot that was saved by keeper Muhammad Shahzad, but former KESC player made no mistake on the rebound, slapping the ball past the international goalkeeper on the second try. With the score deadlocked, both teams tried for chances but without much conviction, and they went into halftime tied at one all. The second session remained barren.
