Women's hockey team suffer third straight loss

GLASGOW: The Malaysian women’s hockey team suffered their third consecutive defeat when they were outplayed 5-0 by England in a Commonwealth Games Group B match at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre.

Malaysia, who lost 4-0 to Australia and 2-0 to Scotland, defended in numbers against 2010 Games bronze medallists England but to no avail.

The dominant England, who defeated Wales 2-0 in the first match, had to wait until the 17th minute to open the scoring through an Ellie Watton penalty corner attempt.

England then made it 2-0 through yet another penalty corner set piece, this time through Giselle Ansley in the 35th minute.

England stepped up a gear after the breather to knock in three more goals.

Sophie Bray sounded the board in the 42nd minute, Alex Danson eight minutes later and Hollie Webb rounded off a perfect day for England with the fifth in the 70th through yet another penalty corner set piece.

This has been a nightmarish outing for goalkeeper Farah Ayuni Yahya, who described yesterday’s loss as the toughest game for her.
