Tata Steel, Jamshedpur Friends Club-A and B and Bharat Munda Samaj-B moved into the semi-finals of the Jamshedpur Sporting Association (JSA) open hockey league, underway at JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur.

In the last of the league round matches held on Friday, Tata Steel beat Bharat Munda Samaj-A 2-1 while Friends-B drubbed DBMS Kadma High School 6-0. Bharat Munda Samaj-B, on the other hand, handed out a sound 9-0 thrashing to DBMS English School.

Friends-A completed its last league engagement on Thursday and ensured a last four spot by topping group B.

In the semifinal clashes on Saturday, Tata Steel will take on Friends-A while Bharat Munda Samaj-B will lock horns with Friends-B.

Tata Steel faced a tough outing before prevailing against Munda-A. The Munda outfit drew first blood via Nicholas Oria in the 17th minute before the Tata men equalised through a T Barla powerful drive in the 25th minute. J. Dungdung settled the issue in his team's favour in the 27th minute.

Friends-B had no problems in drubbing a hapless DBMS Kadma 6-0. J. Sourin (7th and 12th) and S Bhuinyan (10th and 12th) scored twice each, while J Horo (14th) and A Kandulna (17th) found the net once each to win the match for their side.

E. Herenj pumped in five goals in the 17th, 27th, 28th, 35th and 39th minute to put his team on the path to victory path. Teammate S. Bodra netted a brace (25th and 27th) even as P. Ram (15th) and K. Munda (37th) found the net with ease.
