KUALA LUMPUR: Defending champions Malaysia romped to a 15-0 win over Indonesia in the Asian Schools Under-18 hockey championships at the Sultan Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh on Saturday.

In the opening Group B match, Singapore sprang a surprise when they defeated Sri Lanka 1-0. The Sri Lankans were runners-up in 2006.
The Singaporeans scored their solitary goal through Irfan Noor Hakim off a penalty corner set-piece in the 60th minute.
In another match, Thailand defeated Hong Kong 3-0 to put themselves in line for a semi-final berth.
