Bangladesh suffer first loss

After two massive wins in the Youth Olympic Games Qualifiers in Bangkok, the Bangladesh youth hockey team suffered a 7-4 defeat to Malaysia despite going ahead twice in the 30-minute match at the Queen Sirikit Commemorative Stadium in Pathum Thani yesterday.

Bangladesh overwhelmed Cambodia 20-0 yesterday morning and took that momentum into the afternoon match against Malaysia, taking the lead in the third minute before Malaysia hit back twice in quick succession and made it 2-1 within 10 minutes.

Sarwar Sawon then scored twice to restore the lead, but a virtuoso performance from Rosdi, who scored four goals, overwhelmed Bangladesh.

Bangladesh will play two matches today against Chinese Taipei and holders Pakistan and must post wins to move into the semifinals.
