KL Hockey Club (KLHC) suffered another body-blow when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Sapura in the Premier Division of the TNB Malaysia Hockey League.
This came at the back of a 3-4 defeat to Tenaga on Friday, and now the double champions have shed five points and are in danger of losing their League title.
Izwan Firdaus scored for Sapura off a field attempt in the third minute, and KLHC never recovered until the 55th minute when Azlan Misron tapped in a penalty corner set-piece from the sidelines after pushing the ball in.
Sapura lost 0-5 to KLHC in the first leg, and even their coach K. Balakrishnan was taken aback by the draw.
"We were not physically and mentally ready for KLHC in the first leg, and let in all five goal in the first half itself. Today (yesterday) we scored early and that almost won us the match," said Balakrishnan.
In another match, Maybank shocked Tenaga Nasional with a Mohamed Irfan field goa,l in the 10th minute, but the country's No 1 striker Faizal Saari put his side on level terms with a penalty corner goal in the 28th minute. It was his 13th personal goal in six matches.
Meanwhile UniKL defeated Nur Insafi Perak 4-0 in a match played at the Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh.
