Sunday 2030 defeated Sentul 2-1 to emerge as the Champions of Division Two of the Kuala Lumpur Hockey Association league at the Pantai Hockey Stadium this evening.

They went ahead in the 15th minute via a penalty corner converted by skipper Wan Mohd Faizal. And four minutes into the second half they doubled their advantage when Ikmal scored, also through a penalty corner.

Former Project 2013 player Jasdev Singh Dhillon reduced the deficit in the 61st minute also from a penalty corner. But despite 2030 playing with 10 men after Balbinder singh was sent off in the 48th minute by umpire Rosdi Pilus, Sentul could not capitalise on the numerical advantage to find the equaliser.

For the record the two teams drew in the league match. Sentul however ended the league on top of the standings with 17 points while 2030 were in second spot with 14 points.

But 2030 made it count in the final and took home the Dato Abu Huraira Trophy and cash prize of RM2,000 while Sentul had to be contended with RM1,000. NSTP finished third and were presented with RM1,000.
