Kuwait Still Perfect, Oman On the Board

Kuwait Still Perfect, Oman On the Board

Kuwait and Oman will play for a gold medal at the Division I Challenge Cup of Asia on Tuesday.


Kuwait 8, India 5

The two winning teams from Saturday, the opening day of the Division I Challenge Cup of Asia tournament, met up on Sunday night, with Kuwait defeating India by a score of 8-5.

India started the game off with three straight goals, taking a 3-0 lead after 12:45 of play in the first. Kuwait, however, scored four straight goals in the period to take over the lead, all coming from different goal scorers.

Nobody would score in the second, but India would regain their lead in the third. At 41:30, Tswewang Dorjey tied the game back up for India before Rigzin Norboo potted his second three minutes later. Their lead looked safe until the final 10 minutes, when four straight goals from Kuwait gave them the eventual 8-5 lead.

Oman 2, Macau 1

Oman has given themselves a chance to win the Division I Challenge Cup of Asia with a 2-1 victory over Macau.

Talal Ambusaidi scored the game's opening goal 15 minutes in, a power play goal. Oman would make it 2-0 in the second before Keng Fong Lei broke Mohamed Alblushi's shut out with 12 minutes left in the game. It wasn't enough for Macau to catch up, however, as Oman held on for the 2-1 lead.

With the win, Oman has a chance to win the tournament with a final game against Kuwait on Tuesday. While Kuwait is favoured to win, a victory by Oman in 60 minutes would give them the tournament championship.
