Shell-shocked South China suffered another setback yesterday when they were thrashed 5-0 by Guangdong Winnerway in the Robust Cup Guangdong-Hong Kong Club Championship match in Shaoguan. But the refereeing came under fire from South China team director Peter Leung Shou-chi, who said there was no reason to continue the good-will tournament next season. Leung said: 'The referee awarded a penalty to Winnerway in the 10th minute when their English midfielder [Mark Rennan] fell down next to our Brazilian defender [Aurelio da Silva], who chested down the ball inside the box. 'I couldn't understand the referee's decision. Aurelio did not touch Rennan. I will suggest to the Hong Kong Football Association that it is meaningless to keep the tournament with such a low standard of refereeing.' Meanwhile, First Division new boys Yee Hope edged Sing Tao 1-0 in yesterday's Ericsson League clash at Mongkok Stadium. Yee Hope, now on top of the standings with seven points, opened the scoring in the 35th minute when unmarked Scottish striker Anthony McPeak headed in a Yeung Kin-wah cross. Sing Tao fought back fiercely for the rest of the game but their chances either missed the target or were blocked by Yee Hope's young goalkeeper, Fan Chun-yip. In other news, a Third Division 'B' match between Telecom and Sure Bright at Tai Hang Tung yesterday was abandoned following a fracas between both sides. Police were called to the scene but no arrests were made.
