Hockey: Scots lose on Stott's big day

NIALL Stott won his 100th Scotland cap, but the milestone was overshadowed by a rather disappointing performance as his team lost 3-1 to Malaysia in their second match of the INSEP Hockey Challenge in Paris and consequently surrendered pole position to the Asians.

Russell Garcia's charges had it all to do when they went two down to the talented Malaysians in the opening seven minutes.

After the interval the Malaysians notched their third when a penalty corner was half cleared and the second phase shot flew past Scottish keeper Jamie Cachia.

The Scots finally found the net in the closing minutes, Kenny Bain was the subject of two crude tackles and Mark Ralph made some amends for his earlier miss by slotting a drag flick into the bottom right corner of the net from the resulting penalty corner. Today the Scots take on Poland who have only a single point from two games.
