SABAH girls checked into the fi­nal of the Na­tional Un­der-16 Cham­pi­onships in style when they ham­mered Ne­gri Sem­bi­lan 3-0 in Group Y yes­ter­day.

Sabah look set to meet Kuala Lumpur in the de­cider as the city team lead Group X go­ing into to­day’s fi­nal round of sec­ond stage of matches.

Kuala Lumpur have one win, and only need a draw against Pe­nang to­day to qual­ify for the fi­nal.

“We have a very good side this year, but the play­ers still do not be­lieve in them­selves. Even in the win against Se­lan­gor (2-0), they ini­tially were afraid of their op­po­nents.

“I have tried to calm their nerves and hope­fully, a day’s rest be­fore the Pe­nang game will help our cause,” said KL coach A. Kan­nagi.
