9th December, 2019

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KENINGAU: Kota Kinabalu boys are on course in their title defence of the gold medal that they won in Sandakan two years ago after registering an impressive 4-0 win over Tenom in a Group A tie of the hockey event in the 9th Sabah Games (Saga) at the Keningau Sports Complex yesterday.

The convincing win also saw them seal their semi-finals ticket with a game to spare.

They will be accompanied by Kota Belud into the knockout stage that will be played on Thursday (Dec 12). The two sides will meet in their final group game on Tuesday (Dec 10) where Kota Kinabalu need a mere draw to win the group.

Both sides are level on three points but separated by goal difference.

In the group opener on Friday (Dec 6), Kota Belud had recorded a 3-2 win over Tenom, which languished at the bottom of the three-team Group A.

Meanwhile, in a Group B challenge, hosts Keningau also claimed their semi-final ticket after registering a 3-1 win over Sandakan.

They are unshakable at the top of the four-team Group B on six points while Papar, who edged Lahad Datu 3-2 in another Group B encounter are in second on four points followed by Sandakan in third on one and Lahad Datu fourth on zero points.

Either Papar or Sandakan will accompany Keningau into the semis.

Tomorrow (Dec 10), Keningau will conclude their group campaign taking on Papar while Sandakan will take on Lahad Datu.

Today, hockey event will continue with the women’s category where defending champion Keningau will take on Tenom while Kota Kinabalu facing Telupid, Tawau will face off with Beaufort and Kudat pitting against Tuaran.
