Though the seniors are struggling to make an impact in the Champions Trophy, the junior hockey team continued its winning run in the six-nation  Junior Challenger hockey tournament in Gniezno, Poland, thrashing Germany 3-0 on Wednesday.

India, who whipped France 10-0 in their opening encounter, settled the issue in the first-half itself, scoring all the three goals before the break.

Sandeep Singh put India ahead in the 10th minute with a superb drag flick off a penalty-corner and skipper Prabodh Tirkey made it 2-0 in the very next minute.

Then, four minutes before the break, Girish Pimpale sounded the board from another penalty-corner to give India a commanding 3-0 lead, a statement from the Indian Hockey Federation said.

In the other matches yesterday, Malaysia beat France 3-0 while Pakistan beat Poland 6-3.
