Tenaga Nasional Berhad warmed up well for their crucial match against Maybank tomorrow when they defeated Nur Insafi Warriors 5-0 at the Wisma Belia Hockey Stadium in Kuantan.Had it not been for brilliant saves by Nur Insafi keeper Nasir Ahmad, TNB could well have walked away with a bigger margin of victory. But what was important to them was the three points and preserving their energy for the clash against the Tigers, where a win will elevate them to the second spot.
Sapura moved into third spot of the TNB Malaysian hockey league when they defeated a gutsy UniKL 3-1 at the Wisma Belia Hockey Stadium in Kuantan tonight. The win gave Sapura eight points, two more then Tenaga Nasional Berhad who have a game in hand.
It was a well deserved win for sapura who employed the right tactics by allowing uniKL come at them before breaking out to hit their opponents on the counter.The youngsters from UniKL played with commitment and passion but severely lacked composure. And they made several errors in defence that virtually handed the goals to Sapura on a platter.
It was to be the match of the week, but ended up being a mis-match as defending champions KL Hockey club humiliated cash rich Terengganu HT at the Wisma Belia Hockey Stadium in Kuantan.KLHC walked away not only winning the match 5-0 and collecting all three points, but they also showed six of their former players now donning Terengganu colours that they made a wrong choice.
The attention for the TNBMHL this weekend will be on the likes of Tenaga Nasional Berhad and Terengganu HT as they have not lived up to expectations thus far in the Malaysian Hockey league that reaches its halfway stage when dust settles after the end of matches this Sunday in Kuantan.Playing on the blue surface is bound to give some teams the "blues" as picking up points and staying within touching distance of the table toppers KL Hockey Club and second placed Maybank should be the aim of the likes of TNB and Terengganu.
