NZ beaten by Malaysia

The Black Sticks were beaten 6-4 by Malaysia at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Malaysia yesterday.

New Zealand made a disastrous start, shipping three goals inside the first six minutes, and it was always going to be difficult to come back from that.

Jonty Elmes scored his first goal, from a penalty stroke, and the other Black Sticks scorers were Jake Smith, Scott Cosslett and Isaac Houlbrooke.
