Cops fail to continue game during Selangor Hockey League match

OLAK went on a scoring spree and notched a convincing 8-0 win over Selangor Police in a Division One match of the Selangor Hockey League at the Pandamaran Hockey Stadium in Klang.

The match was abandoned at half-time as several players from Selangor Police were injured and unable to continue the match. Selangor Police started the match with 11 players but three players were injured midway of the first half. They were reduced to eight players. Before the break another player was also not able to play due to injuries.

According to competition rules, a team must have a minimum eight players and Selangor did not have any reserves to resume the match. Deputy organizing chairman P. Kuganesan said Selangor Police apologised for not being able to play in the second half.

“There was a miscommunication between the officials and players. We have accepted their apology in good faith.”

“We expect them to come fully prepared for their forthcoming matches. But the match will stand,’’ said Kuganesan. R. Dinesh scored an hattrick for Olak while Abdullah Sani Abu and K. Satsih scored a brace each and R. Pragesh was on target once.

In other Division One matches, Petaling Jaya City Council and RAMD played to a 3-3 draw while UiTM edged JLJ 2-1.
RAMD Juniors scored a convincing 7-0 win over Prokeck 11-B in a Division Two match while Politeknik Shah Alam edged Synergy HC 3-2; IIUM Mustang defeated PSKPP 2-1 and Selangor Indian Association (SIA) upstaged IIUM Staff 4-2.
