Highlights

New Zealand finished first of pool A after grabbing their third successive win at the Pahang Hockey Champions Challenge 1 in Kuantan. The Black Sticks were too strong for Poland defeating them 8-3.

Simon Child (4’) opened the scoring by putting New Zealand’s first penalty corner in the back of the net. Andy Hayward (8’) doubled the lead a few minutes later when his penalty corner shot found its way into the bottom of the Polish goal. The Black Sticks kept on dominating the match. Stephen Jenness (31’) scored from open play extending the lead to 3-0 before Hayward (33’) added another penalty corner goal to lift the score to 4-0.

The second half saw Poland forcing two penalty corners which they dismissed. Then, Simon Child (45’) added his second goal with a beautiful reverse-stick shot. The 6-0 was provided by Blair Hilton (51’) before Simon Child (56’) contributed his third goal of the match to lift the score to 7-0.

Poland eventually got on the scoreboard thanks to Tomasz Gorny (57’). Hugo Inglis (63’) put his name on the score sheet to extend the lead to 8-1 before Poland struck back with two goals from Krystian Makowski (68’/70’).
