Hing Kong clinches victory over Sri Lanka



In the second match of the day, we could see a match where Hong Kong China showed match after match how strong they are and how much they want to qualify for the Asian Games, getting their third consecutive victory. On the other hand, Sri Lanka had one win and one loss and knew it was going to be a difficult match.

The first minutes of the game saw an offensive HKC, with Sri Lanka feeling more subdued waiting for their opponent. Three minutes into the match, a red team’s entry into the box allowed LAU Pui Sze to push it into the goal and make the score 1-0.

3 minutes later, CHEUNG Evelyn, the great shooter of this team, scored another goal after a penalty corner. With the partial 2-0, the team led by Arifali did not shrink and wanted more. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, tried to attack with long passes into the box to find a player in blue to reach the opponent’s area. This was not enough to close the gap and in the 13th minute player #3 WONG Ching Lung deflected a ball from a set piece that went straight into the net to make it 3-0.

Already in the second quarter, LAU Pui Sze again found a cross on the penalty spot to pick it up and put it into the net, thus CHEUNG Evelyn led extended the lead to 4-0.

Sri Lanka was quite cornered with HKC’s intensity but tried to come out and play their game, but with no good luck in finding the net.

The third quarter was delayed due to a rain shower at the GBK Hockey Field. Once the rain stopped, the players returned to the field to finish the performance.

In the 32nd minute after the rain delay, the girls in red came out to finish the game and found their leader CHEUNG Evelyn in the box to push the sweeping ball into the opponent’s goal.

To seal the match, CHEUNG Evelyn again in the 48th minute made it 6-0 after a penalty corner drag flick (her specialty).

Sri Lanka accumulates another defeat and must get more points in their next match against Indonesia on June 11. While Hong Kong China will face Kazakhstan tomorrow June 10, who are hot on their heels to see if they will keep their first place or be dethroned by the Kazajo team.

The best player of the match was No. 14 Pui Sze Lau, who scored two of her team’s winning goals.
