Rhinos maintain perfect home run

10th February, 2018

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Rhinos kept their perfect home record going after registering a 2-0 over PDRM in a Premier League match at the Likas Stadium last night.

Nippy flanker Maxsius Musa scored the opener for the hosts in the opening half before Heo Jaenyeong added the second after the break.

It was not the best of starts for the hosts as it was the visiting PDRM that had the best chance in the game, but fortunately Robson Rendy Rining was in his element to deny Mohamad Hariz Fazrin in a one-on-one situation.

Then in the 16th minute, Sabah Rhinos finally found the much needed goal when Maxsius picked up a loose ball before slotting home from 25 meters out that went into the back of the net.

It all started when Pito Ramos fought for the ball with the onrushing PDRM custodian Willfred Jabun in a 50-50 situation.

Unfortunately, the lanky Puerto Rican failed to overcome his opponent. However, the speedy Maxsius lurked from behind and picked up the loose ball and slotted home the opener.

The first half ended 1-0. After the break, Sabah Rhinos extended their lead through Heo Jaenyeong by heading home from close range after receiving a well-executed free kick by Sabri Sahar.

Sabah Rhinos created numerous chances to increase the lead, but none hit the target.

With the win, Sabah Rhinos are back in pole position in the standings on seven points, at least until previous leaders Felda United FC take on Penang on Monday.

Next Sabah Rhinos will take on Sarawak in the Borneo Derby tie on Feb 24.
