Bangladesh woman hockey team record first victory in int’l match

Bangladesh Women’s Juniors Hockey team registered their first win in an international match on Tuesday when they beat Sri Lanka by 2-0 goals in Singapore.

The teams faced each other in the six-nation Women’s Juniors (U-21) AHF Cup Hockey Qualifiers.

Ritu Khanom opened the score for Bangladesh in the 27th minute scoring from a penalty corner.
Tarin Khushi doubled the margin in the 58th minute.

After the day’s feat, BHF General Secretary AKM Mominul Haque Sayeed said, “It is a historical day for Bangladesh hockey. The victory will inspire us in future.”

In her post-match reaction, Bangladesh Captain and one of the scorers Ritu Khanom said, “I am very excited. I will do well in our next matches.”

Six Asian countries – Hong Kong, Uzbekistan, Chinese Taipei, Sri Lanka, debutants Bangladesh and hosts Singapore – are taking part in the tournament on round-robin basis.

In their remaining matches, Bangladesh will play Hong Kong on Sept 11, Uzbekistan Sept 13 and Chinese Taipei on Sept 15.

Bangladesh suffered a 0-3 defeat against hosts Singapore in their opening match on Monday.
