Thunderbolts Strike Anderson Seven Times..

JUNIOR Hockey League Divison One defending champions  SSTMI Thunderbolts whitewashed Anderson 7-0 to stamp  their mark at the Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh yesterday.
   The champions only blemish last season was a 1-0 defeat to  Anderson, and this season, they made sure with a thumping  win.
    “We went in looking for a win, as last season Anderson  were the only team which beat us. However, the margin is  very pleasing as we look forward to defending out title,” said  Thunderbolts coach Wan Roslan Wan Rahman.
    There was never a moment of lapse as Thunderbolts  hammered in the goals via Najib Abu Hassan (first minute),  Aminuddin Zain (9th, 68th), Syed Syafiq Syed Cholan (47th,  64th), Firdaus Omar (54th) and Zulhamizan Awang Abas  (62nd).
    “We only have one match this weekend, as we prepare for  what I feel would be a tougher match against Petaling Jaya  (Municipal Council) next Friday.
    “And if we seal the three points against PJCC, it would  make our title defence that much easier,” said Wan Roslan.
    Meanwhile, the saga of the missing sponsors advertising  boards at the Kuala Lumpur HA Stadium continued as none  were visible in the two league matches played at the venue  yesterday.
    The Malaysian Hockey Confederation Competitions Tech nical Committee had decided in their last meeting on Monday  to move all matches scheduled at the KLHA stadium to the  National Hockey Stadium in Bukit Jalil, but that decision too  was not enforced.
