Korean Jong Hyun fires a hat-trick for Tenaga

KUALA LUMPUR: Jang Jong Hyun converted three penalty corners as Tenaga Nasional outplayed TNB Thunderbolts 6-0 in the Malaysia Hockey League (MHL) today.

The Korean, who did not score in his opening match against Maybank (3-3), was on target in the 11th, 52nd and 57th at the National Hockey Stadium.

Syed Syafiq Syed Cholan (24th), Firhan Ashari (40th) and Nik Aiman Nik Rozemi (47th) contributed the other goals.
