QAF FC beat Wijaya FC, 4 -1
| Jake Ten |
QAF FC responded to their shock 3-1 defeat at the hands of 10-man MS ABDB with a convincing 4-1 win over Wijaya FC at the Berakas Track and Field Complex last night.
Ratano bin Hj Tuah set the home side on their way with a well placed shot across the Wijaya FC keeper which found the bottom left corner in the 12th minute. Wijaya FC, perhaps prematurely, threw men forward in search of an equaliser, and piled some heavy pressure on the QAF FC backline.
That was arguably the root of their demise, as Petrus bin Jumat found himself in acres of space down the right wing on the counter, cutting inside the Wijaya FC 18-yard box and squaring for Adie Arsham bin Md Salleh, who pummelled the ball into the net three minutes before the break.
A Wan Firdaus bin Hj Hamidon goal in the 49th minute threatened a comeback, but Riwandi bin Wahit restored QAF FC’s two-goal cushion, effectively sealing the win in the 67th minute. Mardi Mirza bin Abdullah Bujang scored QAF’s fourth goal in 90 + 3.
