Terengganu HT and KLHC slide...

TENAGA Nasional pulled off another upset in the Premier Division of the Malaysia Hockey League when they came back from two goals down to hold Kuala Lumpur Hockey Club (KLHC)  2-2 Sunday.
    This came at the back of holding double champions Terengganu Hockey Team  (THT) 4-4 on Friday.
  However, double champions Terengganu Hockey Team (THT) were placed in a hopeless position when they were beaten 2-0 by Sapura.
   KLHC were 2-0 by the third quarter when all-local outfit Tenaga fought back to steal a point in the fourth quarter.
   The KLHC goals were scored by Pedro Lopez (5th) and NamHyunwoo (39th)  while the Tenaga goal scorers were Syed Syafiq (53rd) and Firdaus Omar (60th).
   Tenaga coach Amin Rahim was naturally delighted with the two points which they shaved off the two title contenders.
    "This is a grand moment for my players as they have pulled off two important draws against  favourites this weekend.
     "Before they went on the pitch I told them they have nothing to lose and everything to gain in this match and they did not disappoint," said Amin.
   KLHC coach Harun Rashid rued the four points they lost this weekend. 
  "On Friday we drew 1-1 with UniKL and today (Sunday) were held by Tenaga. This can't continue if we want to chase for titles. In both games we took the leads and then allowed the other teams to claw back," said Harun.
  RESULTS: KLHC 2 Tenaga Nasional 2, Sapura 2 Terengganu HT 0, UniKL 1 Maybank 2.
