Kiwis gain first points

New Zealand bounced back from a heavy 8-2 defeat at the hands of India to inflict a embarrassing 6-0 defeat to hosts Malaysia at the Sultan of Johor Cup.

The win gave the Kiwis their first points while Malaysia are now at the bottom of the standings after all teams had played three matches each.

It was a horror show by the home team who were totally overwhelmed by the hard running and clinical finishing of the Kiwis.

Malaysia started brightly but somewhat disinterested at the end of the first quarter.

New Zealand had a wonderful second quarter, scoring three goals in the 15 minutes.

First it was Moss Jackson that broke the deadlock in the 19th minute for a 1-0 lead.

And four minutes later it was the turn of Maks Wyndham Smith to get on the scoresheet to make it 2-0.

Malaysia were reeling and were further punished in the 26th minute as Benji Edwards converted a penalty corner for a halftime score of New Zealand leading 3-0.

Benji inflicted more pain on the home side with his second and New Zealand’s fourth in the 33rd minute.

Dylan Thomas scored the fifth just before the hooter to mark the end of the third quarter.

Benji then stepped ip to nail his hattrick in the 

 47th minute time make it 6-0.
