Sabah 2019: A test of Physical and Mental Endurance

It was an intense game of futsal matches. Over 50 teams gathered at the Yayasan Sabah Futsal Court last weekend to battle it out for the title of state champions and for a chance to proceed to the grand finals to claim the title of Raja Futsal 2019 for themselves.

The Sabah leg of Raja Futsal was concluded with Sainbara FT claiming the title of champions for Sabah, beating last years champions, Sri Aman with an end game result of 2-1. Raja Futsal also crowned its first female team champions, DBKK.

Sainbara FT’s team captain, Harnoman, shared that the journey to becoming the champions for the Sabah leg this year was difficult as they only prepared for a week prior to the competition. He also mentioned that having so many back-to-back games against strong teams was exhausting both physically and mentally. Especially against the previous year champion of Sabah, Sri Aman, who were also a very big name in Sabah. However, they are still going to give it their all to claim the title of Raja Futsal champions during the grand finals.
