Kedah took the lead through Liberian forward Kpah Sherman in the 28th minute and doubled their lead in the 31st minute when Malaysian midfielder Fadzrul Danel scored. Perak fought back and scored two quick-fire goals through Leandro Dos Santos.
Just after the hour mark, centre-back Renan Alves’s thumping header from a corner proved to be the winning goal for Kedah on the final day of the season. Terengganu won 2-1 against Pahang to finish the season in third place, their highest finish since 2011.
