UniKL's Mohd Firdaus Musa reels away in delight after scoring the second goal against KL Sports School in the MJHL on Saturday. - SAMUEL ONG/The Star
KUALA LUMPUR: Poor finishing denied former champions Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) from notching a bigger win in their opening Division One match against KL Sports School-KLHC in the MHC-Milo-NSC Malaysia Junior Hockey League at the KL Hockey Stadium.
Although UniKL won 2-0 on Saturday with goals by Zizi Azwan Hassan Basri (39th) and Muhd Fridaus Musa (48th), coach Mohd Rodhanizam Maat Radzi was left seething with their laboured performance.
“We wasted far too many penalty corners in the match ... that’s something we need to rectify before our next game,” said Rodhanizam.
“While it’s good to start off with a win, it was quite an erratic performance in the first half but things improved once we scored the first goal.
“I believe the players were nervous as it was our opening match. They lacked patience against a team bent on defending in numbers.”
In another Division One match at the Bukit Serindit Hockey Stadium in Malacca, homesters Malacca High School were held to a 1-1 draw by Anderson-Perak SEDC.
Despite playing away, Anderson were the early aggressors and took the lead in the ninth minute through a field goal by S. Deavendran. Malacca High School equalised through Mohd Asraf Zuhry (66th).
In Division Two, Olak-PKT trounced Permatang Juniors 10-1 while Bukit Jalil Sports School could only pip their Juniors 2-1.
It was the second win for Olak, who are determined to move up to Division One next year. They had defeated KLHC Juniors 6-1 on Friday.
