Sabah’s Borneo Cup title hopes rest on Tabs

10th October, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: Kota Kinabalu-based Tabs will be Sabah’s best hope to end their title drought in the ongoing 2019 Malaysia Borneo Football Cup.

They have clinched their final ticket in the Under-12 category after emerging as Group A winners. They will meet the winners of the Group B in today’s championship match that will be held in Likas.

Tabs opened their campaign on a modest mode after being held to a two-all draw by FC Kuala Lumpur on the opening day.

However, yesterday (second day), they upped their game and managed to register three consecutive wins. They defeated Australia Institute Football 2-0, followed by the 3-1 win over Northern Inland Football 3-1, before edging MMT 2-1.

The 10 points gained was all they needed to win the group.

FC Kuala Lumpur claimed the second spot on seven points after registering two wins, one draw and one defeat, followed by Mix Media Team (MMT) in third on six points. They recorded two wins and two defeats.

Fourth-placed Australia Institute Football and fifth-placed Northern Inland Football are level on three points but separated by goal difference.

The rest of the Group A matches yesterday saw FC Kuala Lumpur score a narrow win over MMT and Northern Inland Football. Both matches ended with identical score-lines of 1-0.

The other match saw MMT register their second win after defeating Australia Institute 3-1. Australia’s Caloundra FC are the favourites to win Group B.

They are currently leading the pack on nine points, followed by ATPP Shah Aman (seven), Turf City of Singapore (four), Malaya of the Philippines (three) and TUFC Kids Kota Belud (zero points).

Caloundra FC will need a mere draw to finish top of the group when they take on ATPP Shah Alam in the top of the table clash today.

The other Group B match will see TUFC Kids Kota Belud taking on Malaya.

For the record, DTC Pasir Gudang of Johor won the Under-16 title, MFC of the Philippines lifted the Under-15 title while Indonesia Junior League All Stars (IJL) and BIMO FC, also of Indonesia, were crowned the Under-14 and Under-13 champions respectively. – FRANCIS XAVIER
