THE Malaysian women's hockey team beat North Korea 3-2 in the Junior Asia Cup at the Wujin Sadium in Changzhou, China, yesterday.
The half time score stood at 1-1, with Nuraslinda Said scoring a field goal in the 29th minute. Fatin Shafika (59th) and another goal from Nuraslinda in the 65th minute sealed the three points.
Malaysia now have six points, as they had beaten Singapore 2-0 earlier, but their hopes of playing in the semifinals are slim as their last opponents are India today.
India had beaten Singapore 12-0 and North Korea 13-0.
