Rhinos squander 2-goal lead

Kuala Lumpur: Last season's FA Cup runners-up Perlis managed a 2-2 draw with Sabah in their 1st leg FA Cup quarter-final encounter while Johor Pasir Gudang managed a 2-0 win against Kuala Muda Naza Tuesday night.

At Likas Stadium, Sabah opened accounts in the 20th minute when their import Prince Guy Ative scored with a fierce drive following a Charles Obi cross. Sabah doubled their lead in the 43rd minute when Azrul Ejati Damsah scored from 20 metres out which gave the hosts a 2-0 lead going into the halftime interval.

Two Perlis goals in the final 5 minutes of play ensured the visitors did not go home empty-handed with Mohd Nazaruddin scoring in the 87th minute and then Phillemon Chepita in injury time much to the disappointment of the hosts.

Meanwhile, at Johor Stadium the encounter between the two Super League sides saw the hosts defeating Kuala Muda Naza 2-0.

Hairy Azly Mahamad opened the scoring in the 4th minute from a free kick before Mohamad Khairul Ismail added to the visitor's woes with 90th minute goal.

The return legs will be played on May 29. - Bernama
