BUKIT Jalil Sports School (BJSS) salvaged some pride when they beat Universiti Sains Malaysia 5-1 in Division One of the Malaysia Hockey League yesterday.
BJSS, who lost to Armed Forces Juniors 2-1 on Friday, were still not impressive, but did just enough to score five against a weak USM side.
The MHL is just into its second fixtures, but two red cards have been flashed. On Friday, Ipoh City Council player Mohamed Rasyid was shown the red, while yesterday, USM player Nor Azami Zani picked up the red for an off-the-ball incident.
The BJSS’ hero was G. Kavin Kartik who notched a hat- trick with goals in the 10th, 50th and 67th minutes. The other goals were scored by Dangerous Lee (16th) and Faridzul Afiq (38th).
The USM goal was scored by Azwar Rahman in the 22nd minute.
Bandar Penawar Sports School (BPSS) got off to a winning start when they beat UniTen 3-1 in their first match yes terday.
BPSS got their goals off Shahril Saabah (11th) and Nor Hafiq Gaffar (43rd, 64th). The UniTen goal was scored by Abbas Nekmat in the 56th minute.
“I am happy with the margin, but not with the way the boys played today (yesterday). They have played much better in friendlies, and their penalty corners were also impressive during training, but in real match temperament, they just seem to lose focus,” said BJSS coach S. Prakash.
