It must have been heart wrenching for Keevan Raj as he helped Nur Insafi defeat Sapura 3-2 in the MHL match held at Tun Razak Stadium last night.
Keevan was a loyal servant for Sapura over the past few years, but it was his decisive pass in the 59th minute that set up Shabbir Ahmed Khan to score the winning goal against Sapura.
KLHC defeated Yayasan Negeri Sembilan 6-3 in a match that had almost everything, a spirited fightback, plenty of goals and even a scuffle at the end of the final whistle.
KL Hockey Club gained sweet revenge over their semi final conquerors last season, Sapura, as they hammered them 6-2 in the match played at the Tun Razak Stadium.
UniKL-TRC got their second win in successive matches when they defeated a star studded Yayasan Negeri Sembilan 2-1 at the Tun Razak Stadium.
And with YNS missing their three Pakistani stars, in the likes of Muhamad Imran, Mohd Rasheed and Momamad Waqas, the task was somewhat easier for UniKL-TRC to grab all three points.
Maybank have put the opening match defeat at the hands of Yayasan Negeri Sembilan behind them as they look towards the clash with defending overall champions Tenaga Nasional at the Tun Razak Stadium tomorrow (Friday) night.
