MALAYSIAN women qualified for the second round of the World League when they thrashed Sri Lanka 9-0 in Kuantan yesterday.
This brought their overall tally to a massive 31 goals as they had beaten Singapore and Kazakhstan by identival 11-goal margins.
The Malaysian goals were scored by Norbaini Hashim (second, 37th), Fazilla Sylvester Silin (sixth, 43rd), Juliani Din (27th), Siti Rahhmah Othman (34th), Siti Noor Amarina (47th) and Nor Hidayah Bokhari (49th, 53rd).
Kazakhstan will also play in the Second Round, after they beat Singapore 5-1 in an earlier match to finish second on the standings.
The International Hockey Federation (FIH) made a mockery of the four-team tournament when they allowed two, instead of the champions, to advance.
RESULTS: Singapore 1 Kazakhstan 5, Malaysia 9 Sri Lanka 0.
