Indian colts end runner-up at Sultan of Johor Cup

The Indian junior men’s hockey team ended runner-up in the Sultan of Johor Cup after losing penalty shoot out 3-4 to Great Britain on Sunday.

The teams were level 2-2 after full time in the title encounter. It was Great Britain that drew the first blood in the fifth minute through a penalty corner goal by Luke Taylor. The Great Britain team who had earlier defeated India in the league matches seemed to be in control of their game until India were rewarded with a penalty corner in the 12th minute, which was beautifully converted into a goal by Harmanpreet Singh to draw parity. The next 23 minutes in the first half saw a lot of attacks and counter <g data-gr-id="9">attacks</g> but neither of the teams could capitalise.
