Hockey - 27. September 2007.

Scotland Slides One Passed Malaysian Goalie



Scottish Coach, Dave Stott, said: “The goalkeeper made 5 or 6 great saves which in turn could have made us a few more goals up instead of just the one. We applied pressure almost the whole match including 27 circle penetrations and 4 sharp corners but we just couldn’t get the ball in the net.”

Laura Bartlett, who scored Scotland’s lone goal from a penalty corner, said: “We played well, our formation worked well; the score didn’t represent how we played. We had lots of possession and we should have converted a lot more goals.”

Laura explained that several Scottish players, who had never faced a Malaysian side, weren’t sure what to expect. She described the Malaysians as “very physical and fast with quick skill” and said: “It seemed like we were all trying to do things at one hundred miles per hour.”

Dave Stott added: “They seemed to play much more physical than the last time we played them but we pushed them to play a very defensive game. We had 11 players behind the ball.”

The last time Scotland played Malaysia was at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne where Scotland won 3-0 with a full senior women’s squad. The Malaysians came through Edinburgh while on a UK tour preparing for an Olympic Qualifyer in Canada this March.
