Hockey FIH Series: Malaysia hit a dozen past southern neighbours

After a fighting performance vs Ireland on 8th June, today, Malaysia looked competing with Ireland for the biggest win margin of the day.

Malaysia scored 12 goals as a young Singaporean team looked helpless on the field.

The first goal of this match set the tone of what to expect.

Malaysia’s Hanis Onn raced solo from the half-line and beat couple of defenders to open Malaysia’s account.

Onn’s goal would be considered as one of the better goals of the tournament.

What followed was a flurry of goals by the team in white as they left no stone unturned to better their Goal difference ahead of their next match against Czech Republic.

Malaysia’s Nuraini Rashid showed her prowess as she converted three penalty corners with her powerful drag flicks.

Malaysia’s dominance reflected not only in the scoreline (12-0) but also in the amount of possession they held and number of opportunities they allowed Singapore to enter their circle or have a shot on the goal.

Malaysia now face Czech Republic on the 11th June.

Malaysia’s Nuraini Rashid: “I am really happy that I scored three goals today and it gives me confidence that I can score more goals in the next match.”
