Defending champions Kuala Lumpur and Penang look convincing in the MILO-NSC National Under 16 Championships currently being played in Kedah.

The tournament, hosted by Kedah Hockey Association at two venues, Sg Petani and Alor Star has seen 12 matches being played over the opening two days.

Kuala Lumpur, who are in Group A, opened their campaign by trouncing Terengganu 6-1 on Friday and followed it up with another six goals, this time with Johor on the receiving end with a similar 6-1 margin.

Selangor who are in the same group as KL have also registered two wins, trashing Pahang 8-0 and followed up with a 2-1 win over Kelantan.

Penang hammered Negri Sembilan 5-0 on Friday and followed it up with a 2-0 win over Perlis.
