U-19 squad’s mean streak snapped by costly errors

16th April, 2018

By UMESH RAJAN

KOTA KINABALU: The five-match unbeaten streak by the Sabah Under-19 squad ended disappointingly as they lost 0 – 2 at the hands of PKNS FC on Sunday during their Youth Cup Group A tie at the PKNS Sports Complex in Kelana Jaya, Selangor.

The home side took the lead as M. Asryaf converted home a spot kick controversially awarded by the match official in the 39th minutes.

Asryaf doubled PKNS FC’s lead in the 58th minutes, coolly finishing from close range after a mistake by Sabah’s goalkeeper, Azrine Abdul Rahim.

The win gave the home side all three points as they overtook Sabah on the standings into third place on 14 points with better goal difference while Sabah dropped down to fourth also on the same points.

Team manager, Azman Mastar was disappointed with the result as his team lost touch with leader, Terengganu FC IV, but was optimistic the state juniors will rise back in their next match.

“It is disappointing to get such a result as you are on a roll of several matches unbeaten but this is football and we have to accept that we are the second best team on that day.

“There were several major mistakes made during the match today (Sunday) and we were punished dearly by PKNS FC leading to us coming home empty handed.

“We shall now identify those mistakes and rectify them before our next match against the leader, Terengganu FC IV at home on April 18 (Wednesday),” he said when contacted after the match.

Azman added that his players performed well where they created several good opportunities to score but could not find the back of the net.
