Delhi Dazzlers blank Lucknow Nawabs

January 28, 2005 21:13 IST

Keeping their reputation intact, Delhi Dazzlers blanked Lucknow Nawabs 3-0 in a Tier-II match of the Premier Hockey League at the Gachibowli hockey complex in Hyderabad on Friday.

Gurcharan Singh put Delhi in the lead with a 20th minute strike while Ajit Pal Singh (31st and 36th) scored a brace as the team secured three points to join leaders Chandigarh Dynamos with 18 points.

After a goalless first quarter, Gurcharan Singh made no mistake in hitting the back of the net with a neat drag flick off a penalty corner.

In the closing moments of the second quarter, Delhi earned one more penalty corner and Gaganpreet's hit was blocked by the custodian, but Ajit Pal scored off the rebound.

Ajit Pal struck again early in the third quarter when he took a pass on the right flank from Amar Singh Negi and shot it inside beating the goalkeeper comprehensively as Delhi went up 3-0.

Delhi converted two penalty corners while Lucknow squandered away both the penalty corners they got in the match.

Lucknow also missed a golden chance in the first quarter when an unmarked Kamlesh came up to the top of the striking zone scooped the ball which hit the bars.

Chandigarh Dynamos have 18 points having won all their six matches so far while Delhi too have 18 points but have played one match more.
