LAST seasons MHC-MILO-NSC Junior Hockey League runners-up UniKL Young Guns have had a super start to the season as they sit pretty in Division One without dropping a point after four matches.
The University side has a hundred percent record so far in the league, and with defending champions SSTMI Thunderbolts dropping two points over the weekend, after being held 2-2 by Petaling Jaya City Council, UniKL take a two-point advantage into the weekend.
UniKL coach I.Vickneswaran said: “We lead the pack now, but it is going to be a huge challenge to maintain that spot as other teams seem to have found their touch after a few matches.
“It is a learning process for all of us at UniKL as I only had two weeks to get this team ready and so far they have shown good structure.”
UniKL defeated BJSS Juniors 6-1 on Friday before fighting out for 3-1 win against Politeknik Malaysia on Saturday.
Defending champions SSTMI Thunderbolts will be looking to put aside a rather disappointing weekend as they lost their last season's hundred percent win record to PJCC on Friday before bouncing back to defeat KLHC 3-1 on Saturday.
Coach Wan Roslan Wan Rahman said: “We will have to forget about what has happened, as we look forward to winning our remaining matches. I would like to take nothing away from PJCC as they put up an outstanding performance and pushed us all the way, but we are here to retain out title and we will try our best to turn the tie around in the coming week.”
UniKL will only be up against Olak PKT Tigers this coming week while SSTMI Thunderbolts will play host to BJSS Juniors and Olak PKT Tigers.
