KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional completed their fixtures in Division One of the MHF-Milo-NSC-Admiral Junior Hockey League with an 8-0 win over Srii-Aroma of Penang at the KL Hockey Stadium here yesterday.
The Tenaga sided could have piled up more goal but for the lack of sharpness to the finishing.
They completed their league fixtures with 22 points and have a goal difference of 12 more than the other title contender, Malaysia Sports School.
Sports School have 19 points and they will pip Tenaga to the title if they can beat Johor Sports Council by a 12-goal margin in their final league fixture on Sunday.
Yesterday, Tenaga's national Under-19 player Azli Misron fractured a finger early in the match and will not feature in the knockout round of the competition.
Against a side who are already demoted to Division Two, two Tenaga players scored a hat-trick – S. Selvaraju and Kelvider Singh. It was the second consecutive hat-trick for Selvaraju following his strikes in the 9-2 win over MPK-Olak on Saturday.
The other two goals against Srii-Aroma was scored by Abbas Nekmat.
Tenaga will be hoping that Sports School fail to pip them to the title of goal difference. A second place in Division One will mean having to play a fancied Division Two champions Malacca MC in the quarter-finals. Winning the title will pit them against Division Two runners-up Sports School Juniors.
At the Pandamaran Stadium in Klang, SM Datuk Taha defeated Synergy Hockey Club 2-0.
The Negri side needed to win the match by at least a 23-goal margin to make the cut for the quarter-finals. But they only had goals by Mohamed Zulfadi to show – in the 32nd and 45th minutes.
Datuk Taha finished tied on 26 points with Sports School Juniors but on an inferior goal difference to take third place.
