SELANGOR SHOCK MALACCA

Selangor served up a surprise when they defeated Malacca 2-1 at the Sukpa Stadium this morning to throw wide open the race for the semi final spot from Group A of the women competition of the Malaysian Games in Kuantan.
Needing a win to stay in contention for a place in the last four, Selangor scored the winner two minutes from time through Ellya Syahirah Ellias whose deflection sailed over the Malacca keeper Nur Afiqah Omar into goal.
Malacca had taken the lead in the 44th minute through Nurul Aqilah Izzati Hasmawi in the 44th minute. But their joy was shortlived as Selangor drew level in the 46th minute when Nurul Safiqah Mat Isa put the finishing toucjes to a well worked penalty corner.
Currently four teams are in running for the semis spot, with Penang, Selangor and Malacca all tied on 7 points while Johor could join them on the same number of points if they can defeat Perak in a later match today.
