BD suffer 3rd defeat

Bangladesh suffered a 3-1 defeat to hosts Thailand in their fourth and final pool match of the Indoor Hockey Asia Cup in Chonburi, Thailand yesterday.

Fresh from a 9-0 win over Philippines in their previous match, Bangladesh conceded the lead in the third minute though Boonpea Warun, who scored a field goal before Kampanthong Thanop scored twice in the fourth and 34th minute to all but confirm victory for hosts Thailand.

Moinul Islam Koushik, who struck six goals against Philippines, reduced the margin four minutes ahead of the final whistle.

If Bangladesh can finish fourth in five-team group with three points from four matches, the boys in red and green could face the Pool B fourth-place finisher, Chinese Taipei, in the 7th-8th position-deciding match on July 20.
