Three wins in three games and onto Round 2

With a perfect 3-0 record, Bangladesh won the Hockey World League Round 1 tournament hosted by Singapore. Bangladesh netted a pair of 6-1 wins against Hong Kong and Thailand, but it was yesterday’s 4-2 win against host Singapore that was ultimately the deciding match.

In the key meeting, the two teams were deadlocked at two at the half, but a pair of second-half goals coming from Mohammad Moinul Islam and Rashel Mahmud Jimmy pulled Bangladesh through to the 4-2 victory. Jimmy was the key for Bangladesh throughout the tournament, he finished the event with five goals.

The tournament victory means that Bangladesh will move onto the Hockey World League Round 2. Bangladesh is the only team from the quartet that will go onto the next round. Singapore ended the tournament in second place with six points and Hong Kong and Thailand rounded out the standings.

The best player award for the tournament went to Singpore's Saifulnizam Md Seftu and the best goalkeeper was Thailand's Authachai Soh-Tree.
