Kuching FA overwhelm Batu Dua FC 4-1 in second last match

KUCHING: Kuching FA continued their winning momentum thrashing Batu Dua FC 4-1 in their second last M3 League match at the Sarawak Stadium here Sunday night.

The victory with a big goal margin was exactly what their chief coach Ideris Untong had asked for from the players, thus sending a strong signal to the State senior team that they meant business and will not take it lightly in their play-off match.

Both teams started cautiously with Kuching FA’s Yuta Suzuki breaking the deadlock when he slammed in a
perfect pass from veteran striker Joseph Kalang Tie in the 19th minute.

Faizal Aziz equalised for Batu Dua following a blunder by the homesters’ defence that allowed Faizal to fire the ball past Kuching FA keeper Hafiezulhashim.

They were tied to 1-1 scoreline in the first half.

After the breather, both teams exchanged attacks until substitute Samsu Alam put Kuching FA 2-1 ahead in the 77th minute through a powerful volley in the penalty box.

Joseph made it 3-1 in the 80th minute while Suzuki scored his second goal to complete Kuching FA’s 4-1
victory.

Ideris told TribuneSport that he was very happy and satisfied with the victory and the big goal margin.

He said his team played a quality game and were of high spirit although the victory
did not change the team’s position as the league’s first runners-up.

“Congratulations to all the players and thank you to our supporters who came to the stadium to give us their support,” he said.

Kuching FA last match is scheduled on Nov 16 at home against Ultimate FC.

“I hope we can also win the last match against Ultimate FC,” said Ideris, adding that the victory will boost their confidence ahead of the play-off match against the Crocs.

He said the win would also be a gift for the supporters.
