THE Malaysian national women's team hammered Northern Territories 7-1 in the Australian Hockey League in Perth Friday.
  The win came at the back of a 3-1 defeat to New Zealand Futures on Thursday.
   However, the men's teams hit another bad patch as both the national and back-up squads lost their matches.
  The Malaysian Tigress, as the women are registered in the AHL, got their goals off Siti Rahmah Othman (ninth, 52nd), Nurul Nabihah Mansur (10thm 56th), Hanis Nadia Onn (20th), Wan Nor Faiezah (41st) and Raja Norsharina (58th).
  However the men's national team, known as the Malaysian Tigers, suffered a 5-2 defeat in the hands of Queensland Blades.
  The Queensland Blades scored five goals before the Tigers got back two off Shahril Saabah (47th) and Ramadan Rosli (57th).
  And Malaysia's back-up squad, called Malaysian Blues, lost 2-0 to WA Thundersticks.
  Saturday: Women -- Malaysian Tigress v New South Wales.
