GLASGOW, July 29 (Bernama) -- The National men's hockey squad suffered an embarrassing 2-4 defeat to hockey minnows Trinidad and Tobago in a Commonwealth Games Group B match at the National Hockey Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland today.

The defeat, Malaysia's second in a row, after having lost 1-8 to England two days ago, has virtually 'killed off' Malaysia's chances of moving into the next stage.

Trinidad and Tobago, virtually an unknown hockey playing nation, took the lead in the 8th minute through a penalty corner strike by Mickell Peirre before Kwandwane Browne made it 2-0 three minutes later.

Browne continued to pile on the misery for the Malaysians with his second of the night and his country's third in the 15th minute.

Malaysia managed to reduce the deficit through Norhizzat Sumatri in the 24th minute but Browne was again on target to complete his hat-trick and score Trinidad and Tobago's fourth in the 35th minute.....
