At the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex, Sohar rained in goals into Nizwa net by scoring in all the quarters.

SEEB PREVAIL

Dhofar, who suffered their second defeat in two matches, are out of contention.


Seeb will meet Al Nasr on Friday in a key tussle to decide both teams’ chances for a last-four entry.
