Malaysia recorded their third win from four games to remain very much in with a chance of finishing in the top two of the women’s Hero Hockey World League Round Two and possible qualification for round three as they got the better of Fiji.

They were scarcely troubled in this tie as Nadia Abdul Rahman was in exceptional form, first in midfield and then down the right wing.

After just 30 seconds, her side showed their intent, Nadia's switch to Kannagi Arumugam bouncing off the post.

They went ahead in the sixth minute when Fazilla Sylvester Silin finished off from Nobaini Hashim’s cross. Nadia scored the second before two goals from Nor Azlin Sumantri completed the first half scoring.

After the break, Nadia completed her hat trick while Siti Noor Amarina Ruhani also scored three times. Fazilla, Juliani Mohamad Din and Siti Rahmah Othman also weighed in for a comprehensive victory.
