13th December, 2019

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KENINGAU: Kota Kinabalu look set to walk away with the overall title as they head into the final day of the 9th Sabah Games taking a four-gold medal lead at the top of the medal tally.

As of 9pm last night, the seven-time overall champions, are leading the pack after hauling 28 gold, 26 silver and 22 bronze medals.

Unofficially, they are the new overall champions, wresting the crown from hosts Keningau, who stay in second with 25 gold, 18 silver and 17 bronze medals.

Tawau are third with 15 gold, 15 silver and 19 bronze medals.

There are another three gold medals left up for grabs today – two from men’s and women’s hockey and one from tennis.

Although, Keningau will be featuring in two of the gold-medal matches of the hockey event, but winning both the finals will not be enough for them to pip Kota Kinabalu from the top spot.

However, not all is gloom for the hosts, as they won the Mother of All Golds after their men’s team blanked Sandakan 2-0 in the gold-medal match of the football event at the Keningau Sports Complex last night.

Youth and Sports Minister Phoong Jin Zhe and Assistant Youth and Sports Minister Arunarsin Taib as well as Sabah Sports Board Chairman Dr KH Tan were among the thousands of fans who flocked into the packed stadium.

Fredly Derexlyn Jamly and Alexian Jalius starred for the hosts after scoring a goal each in the tie. Fredly scored the opener on the stroke of half time, before Alexian Jalius sealed their win with a solo effort in the 72nd minute.

In women’s football, Tambunan won the gold after defeating Kota Kinabalu 1-0 in the final. Henrietta Justine scored the solitary goal of the match
