Chinese Taipei picked up their first three points of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Women’s Challenge Cup of Asia after thrashing Malaysia 13-2 in Abu Dhabi today.
The Taiwanese bounced back from an opening-day 3-2 loss to Thailand in emphatic fashion at the Arena in the United Arab Emirates' capital.
Tan Su-Ting scored five of the goals, while there was four for Ho Ping-Hsiang and braces for Liu Pei-Chen and Wang Hsin-Yu.
Malaysia's consolation strikes came courtesy of Aisha Nuval Othman and Jay En Claire Wong.
The result moves Chinese Taipei up to third place in the round-robin standings behind leaders Singapore and second-placed Thailand.
Earlier in the day, Jamie Kaisser scored the only goal of the shoot-out as New Zealand edged Thailand 1-0.
The Kiwis sit in fourth spot with Malaysia bottom of the pile.
Action in Abu Dhabi is due to continue tomorrow with Singapore facing Chinese Taipei and New Zealand meeting Malaysia.
The IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia series provide competitive opportunities for Asian teams that are either in the lower divisions of the IIHF World Championships or have not competed in any IIHF World Championships.
The first women's version of the tournament took place in Shanghai in 2010.
