MALAYSIA'S women's hockey team have not had it this rosy as they whipped their rivals to qualify for the Second Round of the World League in Kuantan last weekend.
Starting with a 11-0 thrashing of Singapore, the women then whipped Kazakhstan 11-1 before rounding up the tournament with a 9-0 win over Sri Lanka.
A total of 31 goals scored, and only one went past the defenders in the International Hockey Federation tournament which serves as a qualifier for the 2014 World Cup, with 12 qualification places up for grabs.
Round Two of the World Series will be regional and generally covers more than one continent.
There will be four Round Two tournaments with six teams each. The format will be a single pool round robin.
Fazilla Sylvester Silin also won Malaysia the Player of the Tournament award while Nor Hidayah Bokhari was the joint top scorer, with six goals, with Gulnara Imangaliyeva of Kazakhstan.
The team, coached by former men's national goalkeeper Nasihin Nubli, will next head for the Lanco Super Series in Australia.
The Malaysian Hockey Confederation is also looking for a foreign consultant to further strengthen the women's side of the game. By Jugjet Singh
