KUCHING: Sarawak kicked off their 2018 Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win over Kuantan at the Stadium Negeri yesterday.

The solitary goal was scored at the 18th minute by winger Abdul Rahim Abdul Razak who converted a cross by Mateo Roskam following the Croation’s sublime solo through Kuantan’s defence.

The Crocs almost doubled the score three minutes later, after striker Bobby Gonzalez’s effort beat Kuantan goalkeeper but hit the bar.

In the second half, Sarawak mounted series of attacks only to be frustrated by the visitors’ resilient defence. The scoreline remained until the final whistle.

Sarawak’s next match is against Terengganu II at Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium on Monday.
