Waveriders outclass Mumbai again

Waveriders outclass Mumbai again
Defending champions Delhi Waveriders rode roughshod over a struggling Dabang Mumbai and notched up a convincing 3-1 win in their Hockey India League encounter at the Mahindra Stadium on Thursday. The visiting team got their first two goals of the match through New Zealander Simon Child, in the 5th and 47th minutes, before India international Harmanpreet Singh reduced the margin for Mumbai with a penalty corner goal in the 51st minute.

Any hopes of Mumbai coming back and drawing the game through a late goal as they did in their opening game against Punjab Warriors was botched when Australia's Jason Wilson found the mark two minutes from the end ? the visitors' third field goal of the game ? to complete the rout. Delhi had beaten Mumbai by the same score-line in their first-leg encounter and the victory was their second in five games in the tournament, both notched against Mumbai.

Mumbai continued to remain winless in the league following their third loss in five games and remained at the bottom of the six-team table.
