Rhinos fail to make final

Kuala Lumpur: Kedah and Perak are through to the Malaysia Cup final after registering wins over their opponents in their respective semi-final matches Tuesday night.

At Ipoh Stadium, hosts Perak defeated Sabah 2-1 on the night to win 3-2 on aggregate. Mohd Khalid Jamlus was Perak's hero when he scored a brace with efforts in the 10th and 39th minute.

He was also on the scoresheet in the first leg match which ended 1-1. Zulamri Muhammad scored the Rhinos solitary goal in the 32nd minute.

At Darul Aman Stadium, Kedah continued their treble hunt with a 2-0 win over Terengganu. The Super League and FA Cup champions who were cheered on by 30,000 fans, opened accounts as early as the 4th minute when Kedah's ace striker Marlon Alex James was fouled in the penalty box by Terengganu defender, Mohd Marzuki Yusof.

The resulting spot-kick was easily converted by Kedah defender Nelson Sam Martin. Hasmawi Hassan made the game safe with another goal in the 29th minute to book Kedah's ticket to the final with a 2-0 aggregate win.

The final will be played on Saturday at a venue to be determined later.
