Asian School Boys U-18 Hockey Championship had a happy ending for the Indian young lads as they beat Malaysia 5-1 to be the Asian U-18 Champions.

The tournament was also special for India as the boys scored 70 Goals in the tournament while conceding only twice, that’s an interesting fact for the Indians as conceding only twice in the whole tournament is a clue of things going right in junior level.

The tournament was held in Bhopal where India was put in Pool B along with Nepal, Thailand & Singapore, while pool A had teams like Malaysia, Sri-Lanka, UAE & China.

India was up against China in semi-finals & it was India who thrashed China with the scoreline of 11-0 giving their opponents no choice of bouncing back !

India’s  performance in this Tournament :

Final                  –     India    5      :       1    Malaysia

Semi-Final       –     India     11    :      0      China

Group Stage    –     India     17     :       1   Thailand

Group Stage    –      India     13    :      0   Singapore

Group Stage    –      India    24     :      0      Nepal

This scoreline clearly indicates how Indian young boys have dominated the show & has been so composed to lift the trophy as only two teams i.e Malaysia & Thailand managed to score against India.

The performance clearly shows that the future is Bright for India & we hope these youngsters will get lot of exposure through this Championship to uplift their skills level.
