Bakes FC closed the gap on fifth place in the NFABD Under-19 Youth League after they hammered Panchor Murai 6-1 at the NFABD House Artificial Football Field yesterday.

Bakes opened the scoring through Asif Al-Baqi bin Abdul Rahim in the 10th minute before Md Mqaiman bin Haji Zuraimi doubled the lead in the 22nd minute.

Abdul Hasbul Faeizul bin Haji Bolkiah extended his side’s lead a minute after the break before Ahmad Hamimi bin Yakub restored Panchor’s hopes in the 61st minute with his effort.

A double from Md Sufi Syahiran bin Haji Zulkifli in a space of five minutes dashed any hopes of a Panchor’s comeback before Abdul Hasbul Faeizul added gloss to the win seven minutes from time.

Bakes FC remain in sixth place in the nine-member league but are just three points adrift of fifth-placed Panchor Murai.
