Bharat Petroleum defeated Indian Oil 2-1 in the Super League of the second Maharaja Ranjit Singh hockey tournament at the Shivaji Stadium in Delhi on Thursday.

Len Aiyappa put Bharat Petroleum ahead in the 12th minute through a penalty-corner conversion. Prabhjot Singh leveled the score through a field goal just two minutes later.

The winner came in the 46th minute through man of the match Amar Aiyamma.
