KUCHING: DBKU yesterday failed to capitalise on a first-half sending-off that reduced defending champions Finexsys to 10 men in their Kuching Football League semi-final clash at State Stadium here.
They lost 0-1 to the 2008 Borneo Cup winners who sneaked into the final through an early strike from captain Zambery Zainal just two minutes into play.
The former state player headed home from a free kick.
Finexsysa�� Yusman Muhamad was given the marching orders by referee Abdullah Abu Bakar for committing his second foul by felling DBKUa��s Ideris Untong near the penalty box in the 31st minute.
Five other Finexsys players picked up yellow cards against DBKUa��s two.
Although the Kuching City North Commission boys had a fair share of chances, they were let down by poor finishing.
Unbeaten Finexsys will meet the winners of the other semi-final between Brooke Dockyard and Yayasan Sarawak today, also at State Stadium.
