PETALING Jaya City Council (PJCC) came back from a goal down to beat Politeknik Malaysia 3-1 to claim their fourth win in the MHC-MILO-NSC Junior Hockey League yesterday.
The win places PJCC, who finished third last season, on course for a top two finish, as their only blemish was a 2-2 draw against defending champions Thunderbolts.
In the other Division One match, KLHC edged SSP-MSP-Thunderbolts 3-2.
"As expected it was a tough encounter. We went down first and it was a battle then on to turn the match around," said PJCC team manager Zainal Abidin.
"Fortunately, we managed to find the back of the board three time but they were not easy goals. The commitment from the players is good but there is more than could be done when we play UniKL next month."
Izzuan Halim scored for Politeknik off a penalty corner in the eighth minute but Husaini Bakar (21st), Fakrul Razi (34th) and Haikal Zamri (69th) sealed the win.
PJCC play Olak PKT Tigers next Friday and KLHC the following day.
