Sarawak Super League Schedule

It was a game to remember as Sarawak showed no mercy against relegated Kuala Lumpur FA at the 21st Premier League game in the State Stadium.

Head coach Robert Alberts came into the game with his strongest side, hoping to score early, and decide the Premier League title as fast as possible.

However, the Crocs proved slow starters as Kuala Lumpur lead by ex-Sarawakian player Kalle Sone had good movements to unsettle the confident Sarawak side, resulting in the City Boys dominating the first ten minutes.

Nonetheless, the progress of the game saw the Crocs growing stronger as the striking power of Joseph Kallang, Bobby Gonzales, Muamer Salibasic and Zamri Morshidi proved more menacing than ever as the Crocs drew first blood in a game which was slowly tilting one side.

A brilliant move featuring unmarked Zamri was soon blasted with force by Muamer who managed dribble past three of his markers, making the State Stadium roar with cheers.

More efforts came soon after with Zamri and Joseph feeding both Muamer and Bobby, but the backline of Kuala Lumpur stood strong with the help of Benedict Martin which played for Sarawak last season.

With the first half a little bit unconvincing, the Crocs came in the second half with demolition in their minds.

As the referee blew the restart of the game, the Crocs went into immediate offensive with Guy Bwele joining his strikers up-front.

Sarawak grew more confident as they pushed their defense high, enabling more attacking options for their forwards.

The move finally bore fruit when a corner by Joseph drop back right at the lurking Ronny Harun who gave a sterling shot from outside the box to stun the unprepared Kuala Lumpur goalkeeper.

From then on, the raids kept coming with Bwele missing numerous clear cut chances including one which saw his shot saved at the goal line.

Joseph put himself on the score sheet with the clock closing up the 90th minute as he calmly slotted in a wonderful pass off the center of the pitch, making Sarawak 3-0 ahead in the game.

With Kuala Lumpur staring at defeat, and Sarawak closer than ever to their first silverware in 15 years, fan favourite Guy joined the scoring party by making a curling shot which was way too far for the Kuala Lumpur’s substitute goalkeeper to save.

Guy’s goal sealed Sarawak’s hold on the 2013 Malaysia Premier League, and the final whistle was greeted with a loud cheer from home fans as they sang popular Queens song “We are the Champion”.
