Juniors hammer Kepala Batas

KOTA KINABALU: The junior Rhinos went on the rampage as they annihilated SDM Kepala Batas by registering a 7-0 victory in a President’s Cup match played at the Kepala Batas Sports Complex field yesterday.

Selyvister Saini(pictured) grabbed a hat-trick while Tarajan Amil netted a brace with the remaining two goals scored by Leopold Alphonso Otong and Fandi Linik respectively.

But despite the big scoreline, the junior Rhinos’ head coach Rozlee Idris is still not satisfied, citing that it could have been more.

“We missed four or five more goal-scoring chances, and I’m not really happy with the misses because, without disrespect to our opponents, this team (SDM) is not really organised or well prepared.

“So we shouldn’t have wasted the opportunity because you never know at the end of the day this goal average could decide our position in the League.

“Next time around when we meet them again, we must not waste the opportunities,” said Rozlee.

But having said that, Rozlee was happy to see the team register their first away win of the season after failing in their first attempt – losing 1-0 to Johor FC in the opener.

Rozlee also congratulated hat-trick hero Selyvister for having a good game.

“He played much better than in our last game. But I’m a bit disappointed to see that Leopold was not up to his game. That’s why after the break, I brought in Tarajan to replace him.”

Rozlee was forced to make a last-minute change to his first team after both skipper Calaste Aping and Mc Barry Jaz Matin did not make the trip.

Calaste was down with a groin injury aggravated during training, while Mc Barry had something personal to sort out.

Mohd Siraj Munir and Zenelter Dangku started in place of Calaste and Mc Barry.

Rozlee’s decision to start two Premier League-based players – Leopold and Selyvister – in the attack seemed to work its wonders as the duo helped them to take a comfortable 3-0 lead at half time.

Leopold, who inspired the squad to a 2-0 home victory over UPB-MyTEAM in their last game, drew first blood for his side by netting the opener just after six minutes of play.

Then Selyvister extended the lead two minutes later before adding his second and third for his team, at the half hour mark.

After the break, second-half substitute Tarajan added more salt into the wounds of SDM by striking the fourth goal in the 63rd minute before Selyvister completed his hat-trick in the 78th minute.

But the junior Rhinos were not finished just yet as Fandi also put his name on the scoresheet with his 67th minute effort before Tarajan netted his second in injury time.
