Melaka edge Perak 2-0

Melaka triumph over Perak

Melaka defeated Perak 2-0 in the 5-8th classification match in the TNB-Tun Razak Cup Women’s Hockey Tournament at the Kuala Lumpur Hockey Stadium today.

The 2016 Malaysia Games (SUKMA) gold medallist scored through Nur Aisyah Yaacob’s 25th minute penalty corner conversion and Norshafizah Hashim extended the lead in the 31st minute from open play.

Melaka will now play for 5-6th position on Saturday against the winner of the Terengganu-Johor encounter which will be played later today.

In the inaugural edition of the TNB-Tun Razak Cup last year, Perak finished fifth following a 2-0 victory against Melaka in penalty shootout after the match ended 1-1 in regulation time.
