Malaysian-based Liberian striker Kpah Sherman’s 11 goals this season is keeping him in contention for the 2019 Malaysian Super League’s golden boot award.
While his club, PKNS FC, has been struggling to win, Sherman has remained consistent in scoring goals. The former Black Aces FC striker scored his tenth and eleventh goals on Tuesday, June 18 in PKNS FC’s painful 3-2 defeat at home to Kedah FA.
Having won only one of their previous seven games, the Red Ants were hoping to score a win against the visiting Kedah to push their bid for at least a mid-table finish. However, it was the visitors that walked away with all the three points after the sound of the final whistle.
Kedah made a quick statement in the match, scoring just 10 minutes after kickoff time. They defended their one-goal lead until the end of the first half, giving PKNS an uphill task in the second 45 minutes. Eight minutes into the second half, Kpah Sherman levelled the score before giving PKNS the lead in the 66th minute. However, Kedah got the score back on level terms in the 70th minute though before Riza Ghazali scored the match winner in the stoppage time.
Despite the defeat, Kpah Sherman’s 11th goal of the 2019 Malaysian Super League season took him at the top of the goal scoring chart. The next highest goal scorer has nine goals.
Sherman will be hoping to extend his goal scoring form on Tuesday, June 25 when PKNS travels away at PKNP.
