Punjab Warriors complete domination over hapless Mumbai Magicians

Punjab Warriors completed their domination over Mumbai Magicians in the Hockey India League by scoring their third win against the hosts with a 3-1 margin at MHA Mahindra Stadium on Thursday. In a fast-paced encounter, the Warriors who had beaten the Magicians 4-2 in their first leg clash at this  venue and then 4-3 in the second meeting at home looked a better side in attack as well as defence, especially in the opening half, to emerge deserving winners.

Magicians down 1-3 at the beginning of the third quarter, forced three penalty corners but their main goal-getter, captain Sandeep Singh, who is the leading scorer in the league with 11 under his belt, was unable to score even once. All the goals for Warriors were field efforts and were notched by Dharamvir Singh (7th), Robert Hammond (22nd) and Malak Singh (52nd) while Jonny Jasrotia scored the lone goal for Magicians.
