Perak HA in dire straits

THE Perak Hockey Association has received a stern warning from the Sports Commissioner's Office to get its house in order as five of its nine affiliates have been inactive for a long time.
Perak HA was supposed to hold its Biennial General Meeting by December last year but the Commissioner's office told the association to sort out problems with its affiliates before holding elections.
"We have been in communication with the Commissioner's office who is unhappy because five of our affiliates have not been active but we are in the midst of re-activating the said affiliates," said Perak HA secretary Sallehuddin Mokhtar.
The Commissioner's office has set March as the deadline for Perak to hold its BGM.
"For sure we will be able to meet the March deadline as work is being done to get all the paperwork ready," added Sallehuddin.
The Perak HA president is Datuk Rahim Ariff.

Thumping win for KLHC

By Ajitpal Singh

KUALA Lumpur Hockey Club (KLHC) leapfrogged Tenaga Nasional (TNB) as the new Premier Division leaders of the Malaysia Hockey League after they thrashed hapless UiTM 10-0 at the KLHC Stadium in Pantai yesterday.
KLHC, the defending champions, collected 18 points, two more than TNB, from seven matches and are now primed to retain their title.
Ismail Abu scored a hat-trick in the fourth, 34th and 43rd minutes from open play while penalty corner specialist Razie Rahim added a brace in the 54th and 60th minutes.
Other goals were from Harvinder Singh (25th), Tengku Ahmad Tajuddin Abdul Jalil (28th), Azli Misron (56th), Ahmad Anuar Sham Kamar (67th) and Muhd Amerullah Abd Aziz (69th).
Coach K. Dharmaraj said his players showed their true form in yesterday's match.
"We wanted goals and we got 10 today (yesterday). I instructed my boys to make the most of their chances and they did just that," said Dharmaraj at the KLHC Stadium yesterday.
"I would not say that it was an easy match as UiTM also had chances to score. We just took most of ours and it made the difference."
KLHC continue their campaign in the Premier League against Maybank at the USM Hockey Stadium on Friday.
