Visitors JPW Beat DWR 3-2 In Front Of Home Crowd

New Delhi, 7th February 2017: Ahead of their first home game in Chandigarh on 9th February, the Jaypee Punjab Warriors were eager to find their winning ways and they did exactly that with a splendid 3-2 win against the Delhi Waveriders who are yet to win a match in the fifth edition of Coal India Hockey India League.

Prior to the start of the game, played in front of a loud Delhi crowd, the defending Champions Captain Sardar Singh insisted on consistent performance and getting an early lead and they stuck to the plan. It was Robert van der Horst’s 15th minute goal that gave the defending champions the lead while a PC converted in the 53rd minute by Mink van der Weerden ensured they earned the winning points.

Though initially, in the first quarter, the home team did well in containing the defending Champions from making too many circle entries. They marked key players like SV Sunil who had converted two field goals in their win against Ranchi Rays but only with a minute left for the first hooter, Jaypee Punjab Warriors earned their first field goal thanks to the experienced Dutchman Robert van der Horst who made no mistake in putting the ball past Delhi Waveriders keeper Vincent Vanasch after a perfect assist by Satbir Singh. This 15th minute goal earned the visitors a 2-0 lead.
