Macau 12, India 0: For those not well versed in the international game, you may not see games like this often. But for India, the game doesn’t even compare to their 39-2 loss to Kuwait back in 2011. For Macau, the victory comes as just the fourth victory in the history of the country, third win against the Indians. Defenseman Hou Kan Kam got Macau on the board only a minute and a half in when Sonam Gurmat with an easy wrister to make it 1-0. Two minutes later, Ka Kit Pong scored to make it 2-0, a seemingly unreachable score for India right off the bat. Before the game came to a close, Kan Kam and Kit Pong would both add hat tricks as Macau skated to a very easy 12-0 victory.
Kyrgyzstan 6, Singapore 3: It’s not every day you see shot clocks like this: 68-50. It was a solid return for Kyrgystan, who’s six goals on 68 shots allowed for a fantastic return effort from the CCOA hosts. They had a tremendous first period, getting goals from Kanaibek Omurbekov, Uran Tursunbekov and Azamat Begimbaev to make it 3-0 only 16 minutes into the contest. Singapore would add a goal before the period came to a close, but Omurbekov single-handedly rendered any potential comeback from them, scoring two more for the hat-trick in an eventual 6-3 victory.
