UniKL You g Guns were given a fright by Petaling Jaya CC before winning 2-1 to take the runner up spot in the Milo Junior Hockey League at the Ministry of Education Stadium in Pantai.

 

And at the Taman Daya Stadium in Johor Baru, SSTMI Juniors were held to a 1-1 draw by KLSS and the result meant that both teams were out of the running for a place in the battle for the overall title.

 

UniKL opened scoring in the 9th minute via Zulhazriq Hashim but PJCC drew level through Zulhazwan Hashim two minutes before half time.

 

UniKL got the winner in the 64th minute through the efforts of Jamil Johari Ghazali that assures them of the runner up spot in the league with a match in hand.

 

At the moment Malacca High School are playing the waiting game as they are fourth in Division One. Anderson need a win over UniKL to pip MHS for the final berth into the last eight of the Milo Overall Cup. Any other result will see MHS safely through.

 

In Division Two, Olak-PKT thumped SMK Padang Midin 6-2 to book their spot in the playoffs for the overall stages that will be played next weekend. Joining Olak from Division Two B are Pahang Juniors.

 

Nur Insafi booked their place by topping Division Two A and they were joined by Bakat MSS Kelantan who defeated SMK Syed Hassan 2-0.

SSTMI Thunderbolts are poised to claim their fifth consecutive Junior Hockey League Division One title when they face Kuala Lumpur HC at the Taman Daya Stadium in Johor Baru today.

KLHC -- who have won only once -- will be cannon fodder for the unbeaten Thunderbolts, who have scored 30 and conceded just once in the league.

"I believe the match is purely academic, but we will need to claim victory in the first half itself, as allowing any team too much of time and space can spell trouble," said Thunderbolts coach Wan Roslan Wan Rahman.

Thunderbolts, Petaling Jaya City Council and UniKL Young Guns have all qualified for the knock-out Milo Cup.

Three teams -- Malacca High School, KLHC and Anderson -- are in the running for the fourth and final spot from Division One.

As for Division Two, the top-two teams from Groups A, B and C will qualify for the knockout stage, where only four will advance to the Milo Cup.

TODAY -- Division One: SSTMI Thunderbolts v KLHC (Taman Daya, 5pm).

Division Two A: 1Mas Penang v Bakat MSSK (USM, 5pm), MSSP-USM v STAR (USM, 7pm), PHKS v Matri (Alor Star, 5pm).

Division Two B: Larut Matang v Padang Midin (Kuala Kangsar, 5pm), Felda Temerloh v 1Mas Perak (Temerloh, 5pm).

Division Two C: SMK Datuk Bentara Luar v Tunku Besar SS (Batu Pahat, 5pm), BJSS v Sains Johor (Education Ministry, 5pm).

SSTMI-Thunderbolt look set to retain their Division One MHC-Milo-NSC Malaysian Junior Hockey League title.

They play KLSS-KLHC in their final league match and even a draw will see them seal their fifth league title in a row. They already have four overall titles in their bag. They are not expected to falter at the last hurdle on Friday at the Taman Daya Hockey Stadium in Johor Baru.

Their consistency in winning is the result of strong support from the school and the financial clout of Tenaga Nasional, who also provide expertise in technical aspects.

The other Division One teams are still lagging. Even UniKL, with their panel of coaches which include A. Arulselvaraj, Mirnawan Nawawi, Mohamed Nasihin Nubli and M. Nadara cannot match the champions.

The SSTMI, formerly known as Bandar Penawar Sports School, found the right tonic to success when they won the support of sponsors Tenaga Nasional, and changed their name to Thunderbolt.

They have not looked back since, winning the league title in 2010, 2012, 2013 and three overall titles from 2011 to 2013.

This season, they are unbeaten after five matches with a whopping 30 goals in Division One, and are expected to have an easy time against KLSS who only have one win after four matches.

“We are fortunate that we have an ally in Tenaga Nasional. The collective effort with them has kept us at the top for the last five years,” said coach Wan Mohamed Roslan Wan Abdul Rahman.

“We still have to defeat KLSS to win the title and I am sure it will be a formality tomorrow. The players always knew that defeating UniKL was the key and I am glad they played well to win convincingly,” he said.

While the title will be decided Friday, the other feature this weekend is the fight for second place in the league.

Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) and Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) will be fighting for second place when they meet on Saturday. The winner will clinch the second place.

MBPJ, who were runners-up last year, play their last league match and know that nothing short of a win will suffice.

For UniKL it is back to the drawing board after their humiliating 1-4 defeat to Thunderbolt last Saturday.

Coach Mohd Rodhanizam Mat Radzi will have to try harder to get his team working as a unit. Their inability to perform as a team stood out like a sore thumb in the match with the champions. In addition, UniKL have been lamenting their weakness in the penalty corner department but have yet to do anything about it.

“Thunderbolt exploited our weakness (last week) and we paid the price for missing chances in the first half. We will now try to win the runners-up spot and focus on the knockout stages but we need the players to have confidence in their abilities,” said Rodhanizam.

“If we can keep the mistakes down and capitalise on the chances up front, then we stand a good chance at winning,” he said.

UniKL will wrap up their league match against Anderson on Sunday

09 Feb 2014

Petaling Jaya CC edged KL Sports School 2-1 to take over second spot in the standings of the Division One of the Milo Junior Hockey League.

 

They can retain the runner up spot if they defeat UniKL Young guns in their final league match next week.

 

KLSS drew first blood in the eighth minute when Nur Faiz Rosli scored a field goal, but PJCC equalised seconds from the half-time hooted off a Nor Ikhwab Rahman penalty corner.

 

And in the 66th minute, Nazirul Zebidi made sure his team collected full points with another penalty corner attempt.

   

PJCC coach Azlan Saufi was a relieved man when the final hooter blew: “We did just enough to beat KLSS, and I thing it was due to the two-week break which the boys enjoyed.

   

“But I’m happy with their commitment to come back from a goal down and beat KLSS so that we still have a chance of finishing second in the JHL this season.”

   

However, Azlan does not thikn his side desreve the favourites tag when they play UniKL.

   

“UniKL were quite unlucky their penalty corner’s did not work against SSTMI Thunderbolts (UniKL lost 4-1). Overall, I think UniKL are a very strong side and any team which takes them lightly will be punished. So I feel the underdogs tag is better for PJCC,” said Azlan.

 

In Division Two, Olak-PKT fell to their first defeat of the season as they went down 2-1 to MSP Pahang Juniors in Kuantan.

 

But the defeat did not affect their position on top of Division Two B as they have 15 points from the five wins registered so far.

 

The win however put MSP Pahang Juniors into second spot with 14 points and they should accompany Olak into the playoffs for the Milo Cup stages.

 

Nur Insafi kept their 100 win record in Divission Two A when they edged SMK Syed Hassan of Perlis 2-0 to book their place in the playoffs, where the top two teams in all the second division pools will be drawn into two pools to vie for four spots in the knockout stages.

Thunderbolt showed UniKL Young Guns that they still have a long way to go if they cherish laying their hands on the Division One title of the MILO Junior Hockey League.

 

For Thunderbolts hammered UniKL 4-1 and have one hand firmly on the trophy as they have KL Sports School to beat to confirm winning the title and the RM15,000 prize money that comes with it.

 

It was the failure of UNIKL penalty corner battery that let them down in the first half as they were awarded three but could not find a way towards goal.

 

The strike force was poor to say the least  as they failed to find the mark despite creating good chances that could have easily been put away.

 

UniKL were tactically outclassed as they players had no idea how to cope with the defensive strategy adopted by Thunderbolts in the early part of the match. That coupled with a lackadaisical attitude put paid to their hopes of wresting the title from Thunderbolts who throughly deserved the win and title.

 

Despite being awarded two penalty corners early on, UniKL who faced a problem in this department from day one, failed to get it right.

 

And Thunderbolts punished them four minutes before halftime as Aminuddin Mohd Zain converted a penalty corner to give them the lead going into halftime.

 

In the 40th minute Thunderbolts increased their tally as Aminuddin found the mark yet again and UniKL were stunned.

 

More was to come as Thunderbolts weaved their magic and scored a third in the 52nd minute through Najib Hassan.

 

Though UniKL pulled a goal back in the 56th minute via Irwan Ishak, they paid the price for the misses in the first half.

 

Ammar Zahari pull the nail into the coffin adding the fourth in the 67th minute.

UNIKL Young Guns were late bloomers, as they only powered ahead in the second half to beat SSTMI Juniors 6-0 in the Division One of the Milo Junior Hockey League at the Bukit Jalil Stadium.

    

And at the Malacca Stadium, SSTMI Thunderbolts beat Malacca High School 7-2 to set up a mouth watering duel at the National Stadium today.

 

UniKL and Thunderbolts square off today in what could be the Division One title showdown.

 

"We wasted many penalty corner attempts, but the boys made up with field goals in the second half, and I expect my strikers to deliver again when we play Thunderbolts tomorrow (today)," said UniKL coach Mohd Rodhanizam Mat Radzi.

 

For UniKL, their goals were scored by Mohamed Shafirrul Akmal (27th), Zizi Azwan Hassan (30th), Rahimi (45th, 55th, 64th), Hafif Elkan (67th). But they were once again let down in the penalty corner department.

   

Defending champions Thunderbolts, however, were dealt a severe blow as their penalty corner ace Najmi Farizal will not be able to play against UniKL today as he picked up a yellow card against Malacca High School.

   

"Najmi scored a hat-trick against Malacca, but in his gung-ho attempt to win the match for us he picked up his second yellow card of the tournament and will serve his suspension when we play UniKL.

 

"This (UniKL match) could well decide the Division One title, and even though we will be without our main penalty corner flicker, I still have faith in my players to deliver three points," said Thunderbolts coach Wan Roslan Rahman.

 

The Thunderbolts goals were scored by Sufi Ismat (fourth), Nik Aiman Rozemi (12th), M. Saravanan (25th), Najmi Farizal (38th, 61st, 67th), Najib Hassan (45th).

    

The Malacca scorers were Amirul Hakim (21st) and Haniff Razak (49th).

Petaling Jaya Municipal Council bounced back from the humiliation of the 0-6 defeat at the hands of Thunderbolt to defeat SSTMI Juniors 4-1 at the Taman Daya Stadium in Johor Baru.

 

PJCC went a goal down as Mohd Taufik Kamjai scored in the 14th minute. However Nazirul Mubin Zebidi drew PJCC level in the 26th minute.

 

Abdul Halim Jalil put PJCC ahead in the 47th minute before goals from Helmi Jaafar (61st minute) and Faliq Razin Zariq Idris (65th minute) gave them all three points.

 

" It was a good performance considering we had a tough match yesterday not to mention the big defeat we suffered," said manager Zanal Abidin Ismail.

 

" We are on course for a top four finish that will enable us to make the cut for the last eight.

 

" The break for the next two weeks comes in handy to iron our our weakness and work on our strategies."

 

In Division Two, Politeknik KPM recorded their second win in as many days when they trashed Bukit Jalil Sports School Juniors 5-2 at the Ministry of Education Stadium.

 

They had defeated BJSS 4-1 yesterday and the win consolidates their position at the top of the table.

 

Meanwhile in Ipoh, Olak-PKT defeated 1MAS Perak    and are almost certain to book a spot in the playoff to determine the four places available for the Milo Cup stage.

 

However Olak-PKT submitted a protest after the match.

 

" I had written to MHC not to appoint any Selangor umpire for our matches but that was ignored," said Olak manager Joseph Silva

 

" Although we won the umpire today made a hash of things and almost cost us the match, thus the protest with the RM500 fee."

UniKLYoung Guns went on a scoring spree as they defeated Malacca High School 5-0 at the MPMBB Stadium in Malacca in the Division One match of the Milo Junior Hockey League.

 

And at the Taman Daya Stadium in Johor Baru, defending champions and table toppers SSTMI Thunderbolt  hammered Petaling Jaya CC 6-0 to consolidate their lead at the top.

 

Mohamed Najmi Farizal Jazlan scored a hattrick in the match with goals in the 37th, 51st and 67th minutes.

 

The other goal getters were Mohmed Amirol Aideed (35th), Mohamed Sufi Ismat (37th) and Danial Ashraf (47th minutes).

 

For UniKL Young Guns, their woes in the penalty corner department continued as they wasted ten penalty corners in the match.

 

"Though we scored five times, we wasted ten penalty corners in total and that really is of a big concern to us, said UniKL coach Mohd Rodhanizam Mat Radzi.

 

"We have to make them count and the next week will be spent correcting our flaws in this department. We have to improve if we want to win titles as penalty corners are vital in winning matches."

 

UniKl was the dominant team in the first half as they earned six penalty corners, which was all wasted.

 

The first two was earned as early as the second minute with Mohamed Hafif Elkan sending both attempts wide. The other three penalty corners were in the 13th and 20th 9two) and 36th minutes.

 

UniKL found the break through early in the match when they scored the opening goal in the fifth minute. It came from a field attempt taken by Jamil Johari Ghazali.

 

The Malacca team had only one penalty corner in the 29th minute but to no avail.

UniKl then added their second goal in the 32nd minute through Mohamed Ikwan Ishak for a 2-0 first half lead.

 

Two minutes upon resumption, Hafif Elkan scored after having fumbled the 6th penalty corner of UniKL.

 

Mohd Haikal Zamry made it 4-0 in the 51 st minute as UniKL continued their wastage of penalty corners as they failed to make another two count in the 53rd and 54th minutes.

 

Hafif Elkan then scored his second of the day and UniKL's fifth in the 66th minute for a comprehensive 5-0 win.
