HIL: Punjab Warriors beat Kalinga Lancers 4-2
Mohali: Jaypee Punjab Warriors skipper Jamie Dwyer led from the front as his team put up a clinical performance defeating Kalinga Lancers 4-2 in a Hockey India league match here yesterday.
Down 0-1 in the first quarter, the Warriors came back strongly and looked aggressive keeping up the pressure on the Lancers for most part of the game thereon.
Warriors' skipper Jamie Dwyer's twin strike minutes before the half time put the local favourites back into business, with scoreline reading 2-1.
Again in the third quarter, the Warriors quickly made amends for failing to capitalise on third penalty corner that came their way, with ace drag-flicker Sandeep Singh earning his first goal in the 38th minute from the fourth penalty corner which his team got.
In the fourth and final quarter, Warriors pumped in yet another goal, with forward Dharamvir Singh scoring in the 49th minute to put his team ahead 4-1.
