NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE 1
Khalsa vs SRC
Final Score: 3 - 1
Date: 16 March 2019, Saturday
Khalsa’s NHL1 team was looking to get back to winning ways after a tough loss to SCC in the previous game against a youthful SRC side.
Khalsa, once again, started the game on the upper hand with a quick barrage of attacks and an early short corner but failed to capitalize on their chances. Despite dominating possession the first quarter ended 0-0.
SRC started to grow into the game in the second quarter and had a few good chances of their own as well as a few short corners. Good saves from the keeper, Gugan, and some last ditch defending from the backline maintained the clean sheet. Khalsa managed to get their first goal from a penalty corner via Faiz.
The game was a tight match in the third quarter with SRC having multiple attacks down the right side. Khalsa encountered much difficulty in coming out of SRC’s full pitch press.
The last quarter was similar to the third with both sides having equal chances. After a scramble in Khalsa’s D, SRC managed to make things even. However, after a good attacking move, Khalsa regained the lead through Naveen. Khalsa started getting more chances and Ethan scored the team’s third goal, seconds before the game ended to make the score line 3-1.
Overall a good win and performance by the team.
