Bandar Seri Begawan - QAF FC ensured Najip FC ended the season without recording a single point after thumping the DST Super League cellar-dwellers 9-2 at the Belapan Track and Field Complex last night.
Skipper Riwandi bin Wahit opened the scoring for QAF FC in the 4th minute after reacting fastest to poor clearance from a Najip FC defender off the back of a free-kick.
Muhd Hafis bin Mahari quickly doubled their advantage after beating the offside trap and firing an accurate shot across the Najip FC goalkeeper.
Micky Anak Gindi scored a third for QAF FC in the 16th minute, with a double-digit scoreline looking like a safe bet.
Muhd Hafis bin Mahari rounded the keeper and slotted into an empty net for the fourth, before a clever chip from Riwandi bin Wahit, the captain's second of the night, made it 5-0 in QAF FC's favour.
Muhd Hafis bin Mahari completed his hat-trick with a cool finish after leaving the Najip FC defenders in his wake, but the goal gluttony lost momentum in the second half
Mardi Mirza bin Abdullah Bujang's header in the 58th minute piled the misery on fort Najip FC, but the whipping boys would capitalize on two defensive errors in quick succession to notch up two consolatory goals of their own, courtesy of Mohd Asril bin Kubu and Norfaez bin Awang Sayang in the 67th and 71st minute respectively.
Mohd Hardiani bin Metussin rose highest to meet a Riwandi bin Wahit cross for QAF's eighth goal of the night, before Mardi Mirza unselfishly allowed Hardi Anak Bujang to get his name on the score sheet in injury time.
