Hi-Fliers rally to win

Chandigarh: Former champions Bangalore Hi-Fliers made a strong comeback after trailing 0-2 to score a thrilling win over local favourites Chandigarh Dynamos 3-2 in a league match of the Premier Hockey League at the Sector 42 stadium Tuesday.

Chandigarh Dynamos struck twice in the space of three minutes with drag-flicker Sandeep Singh converting two stunning goals in 10th and 12th minutes.

In the 23rd minute, Bangalore pulled one back with striker Sandeep Michael earning the team’s second short corner. Chandigarh goalkeeper Baljit Singh blocked Len Aiyappa’s low drag-flick but Bangalore’s Korean import You Hyo-Sik converted the rebound.

After the first two quarters, Bangalore opened up the game and despite an element of risk involved, they went all out in the attack and stretched the Chandigarh defence. Bimal Lakra was outstanding in the midfield and got good support from Vikram Kanth and V.S. Vinay as they completely dominated the midfield.
