The Silver Lions 95 under-17 hockey squad have produced an amazing score in the maiden Turkmenistan President’s Cup as the Saint Petersburgers put 60 goals past the United Arab Emirates national team.

­The regular time of a hockey match is 60 minutes, which means the Russian players scored a goal every minute on average.

The 60-0 win came in the last game of the group stages, while it’s going to be a lot harder for the Silver Lions 95 in the semis as they take on countrymen from Khimki Moscow Region.  

The UAE hammering is still far from hockey’s all time record, with the biggest score in the game’s history recorded in 1998.

Then South Korea topped Thailand 92-0 as part of the Asia and Oceania championships.
