The uae were tested for the first time before they snuffed out the challenge with a golden goal against thailand in the iihf ice hockey challenge cup of asia at the abu dhabi ice hockey rink at zayed sports city, late on monday night.


The hosts were cruising to an easy win with a 4-1 lead and with one period left. but the uae let their guard down a bit which allowed thailand to claw back into the game. thailand made it 4-4 before at the end of the third period before saeed al nuaimi scored the winner in the five minutes of extra time, to separate the two sides.


The uae won 5-4.


Meanwhile, defending champions chinese taipei walloped kuwait 16-1 and mongolia beat hong kong 9-2, in other fixtures on the night.


The uae went ahead on eight minutes through omer al shamisi after an eq (equal strength) after an assist from faisal al blooshi. then, captain juma mohammed al dhaheri doubled the lead on 11 minutes after a pp1 (power play – 1 player).


Thailand opener their account through tim suphankomut on 13 minutes after an eq but obaid al muharrami pulled uae further with a goal on 18 minutes after an eq.


Mubarak al mazrouei added the fourth on 36 minutes after a pp 1 to end the second period with a comfortable cushion.


But tewin chartsuwan and likit neimwan went for broke with three goals between them to help thailand make a fist of it. in the third period, dominated by thailand, chartsuwan scored in the 52nd and 60th minutes, while neimwan scored in the 59th minute, to level the game. but there was still some gas left in the uae tank as saeed al nuaimi scored a golden goal in extra time to win it for the uae.


It was the uae’s second victory after they had opened their campaign with a 5-1 win over kuwait.


In the other game, a dominant chinese taipei went roughshod against kuwait.


To weng scored four goals while chang kai hsiang and yang chang hsing scoring three each. meshal al ajmi scored the lone goal for kuwait.
