Kelantan draws 2-2 with Sarawak


KOTA BAHARU: The Super League match between Kelantan and Sarawak at the Sultan Mohammad IV Stadium in Kota Baharu was tied to a 2-2 draw on Friday.

Sarawak took the lead in the eighth minute through its import player from Australia, Makeche Ndumba.

Kelantan then equalised the score through its import striker from Macedonia, Blaze Ilijoski in the 43rd minute, who netted the cross from Jonathan Lucca.

In the second half, Ilijoski completed a brace in the 63rd minute by brilliantly netting in a pass from midfielder Wan Zack Haikal Wan Nor, catching Sarawak goalkeeper Mohd Iqbal Suhaimi by surprise.

However, The Red Warriors’ joy was short-lived when Sarawak equalised the score eight minutes later through Ndumba.

Kelantan coached by K. Devan, and Sarawak, coached by former national coach Datuk K. Rajagopal failed to score until the final whistle, hence sharing a point from the match which ended 2-2.– BERNAMA
