6 - 0

Match Review SRI - BRU 6-0

Report from Singapore Hockey Federation

Sri Lanka put six past Brunei

Sri Lanka faced Brunei in Round 1 of the 2016 Women Hockey League and they came out victorious with a 6-0 win against a poor Brunei side.

Sri Lanka kicked off the first half with a field goal by Chathurika Wijesooriya at the two minute mark, and a chance created by Pradeepa Gangedura a the 9th minute mark.

Though Brunei was able to create chances for themselves, the sloppy possession of the ball allowed Sri Lanka to easily steal the ball from them. Passes were not coordinated well, and there seemed to be the lack of communication between the players at the beginning of the first half.

Sri Lanka consistently gained the upperhand in the match, taking full advantage of the sloppy passes from Brunei, thus enabling Imesha Weerabathu to successfully sling the ball into the net at the 19th minute mark.

Twelve minutes away from half-time, the scoreboard remained 2-0, with Brunei unable to gain a footing in the competition.

But Nur’Izzati Idris from Brunei challenged Geethika Gangedura at the 23rd minute mark, with the former failing to keep possession of the ball.

Six minutes later, Sri Lanka was awarded a penalty corner but Chathurika Wijesooriya’s attempt misses the net and bounces off the goalpost at the corner of the D.

Chances were definitely plenty in the first half, however, Brunei did not take advantage and were not rectifying the mistakes made earlier. Passes were easily curbed by the opposing team.

The second half saw Brunei still striving hard to convert the chances to scores, while Sri Lanka continued to put pressure on Brunei.

At the 46th minute mark, another penalty corner was given to Sri Lanka, but the shot was blocked by Brunei’s captain, Latifah Sawal and teammate Dyasya Sameon.  

Not leaving the match without a fight, Nur’Izzati Idris and Nurul Syazwani cornered Chathuri Konnasingha just at the edge of the D with Chathuri losing the possession of the ball.

Sri Lanka was awarded a penalty corner a minute before full time, and Geethika Gangedura fought hard to keep possession of the ball while Brunei’s Captain, Latifah Sawal desperately tried to get ahold of the ball.

Sadly, the struggle for possession of the ball was met with the final whistle, concluding the match with Brunei losing 0-6 to Sri Lanka. 

Sri Lanka has no chance of qualifying to the next round, but the long awaited win can be considered a good reward for this hardworking side. Brunei will have to do a lot more if they want to snatch a win against Singapore on Friday night.
