A peach of a goal by Jarnail Singh gave Sher-e-Jalandhar a 1-0 victory over Chandigarh Dynamos in the third Premier Hockey League in Chennai on Friday.
In a match totally dominated by the Jalandhar outfit, the all-important goal came in the third quarter following a penalty-corner variation.
Following a dummy from Kanwalpreet Singh, Baljit Singh Dhillon's flick was blocked by Dynamos custodian Baljit Singh. As the ball ricocheted, a melee ensued and the ball rolled on nicely to Jarnail, who unleashed a fierce reverse flick to send the ball to the roof of the net.Dynamos made some sporadic moves in the last quarter, but the Jalandhar defence withstood the onslaught and trooped out deserving winners.
Chennai Veerans had defeated former champions Hyderabad Sultans 4-1 in the inaugural match of the league on Thursday.
