Field goals from skipper Simon Child and Parvinder Singh and a brace from drag-flicker Rupinder Pal Singh helped the Waveriders earn a 6-0 win. Field goals count for two in this edition of the HIL.

But the real star of the match was Waveriders goalkeeper Devon Manchester who once again maintained his form to help the hosts gain five points from the contest and rise from sixth and last in the standings to finish third and qualify for the semis.
