Uninspiring Start for Former Champions SMK Bukit Nenas
Posted on 03 March 2013
SHAH ALAM (3 March 2013) – Former champions SMK Bukit Nenas of Terengganu did not get the start they were looking for when they were held to a scoreless draw by SMK Seksyen 11 of Selangor in a Super League match of the Minister of Education League Cup match that was played yesterday.

SMK Sekyen 11 of Selangor (in all yellow kit) against SMK Bukit Nenas of Terengganu (in white/black kit).

In spite of the sweltering heat, the 2011 winning side created several clear chances in the first half but they just could not make any of it count even though SMK Seksyen 11 were playing with a man less following the second yellow card on Aqil Danish Azman in the 69th minute.

“It should have been our game with the chances that we had,” said Zainuddin Mohd Zain, the chief coach of SMK Bukit Nenas afterwards. “But to be fair, it is only our first match, so I’m quite confident that the lads will get better.

“The heat here was tremendous and it affected our concentration.”

For SMK Seksyen 11, they were more than happy with the one point even though they had picked up their first full points after beating SMK Tabuan Jaya of Sarawak the previous week.

Chief coach Abdul Razak Salleh said that the team should be happy with the draw considering that SMK Bukit Nenas were a different kettle of fish.
“The boys from SMK Bukit Nenas are physically stronger and you can see, it was a tough game from the get-go,” he added. “So getting a point from this match is good enough.”

In a Premier League match, Pahang Sports School with players from the Under-13, scored their first win of the season with a 4-0 whitewashed of SMK Syed Hassan of Perlis.

Muhammad Iqbal Hakem Mohd Hata gave Pahang Sports School the lead in the 20th minute to be followed by Wan Muhammad Fitri Wan Zalani (38th minute), Muhammad Hadi Fayyadh Abdul Razak (38th) and Muhammad Faiz Nazri (70th).

In the meantime in the Ministry of Education Under-17 League, nine-men SMK Bukit Nenas of Terengganu scored a close 2-1 win over SMK Seksyen 11 of Selangor.

Two goals from Muhammad Safaw Rasid (10th and 72nd minute) saw SMK Bukit Nenas comfortably in front before a red card on Solahuddin Mahmud in the 76th minute allowed SMK Seksyen 11 to score through Muhammad Zulhairy Zulhaimi two minutes later.

Deep in injury time, the side from Terengganu had Ahmad Muzhaffar Sulaiman sent off but it was too late to give Selangor the opportunity for the equalizer.
