Waveriders win HIL opener
Australia’s Jason Wilson scored a brace as last year’s runners-up Delhi Waveriders defeated hosts Punjab Warriors 3-1 in the opening contest of the second edition of the Hero Hockey India League, here on Saturday. The Delhi side took the lead in the 29th minute through young striker Talwinder Singh’s field goal from the top of the opposition circle.
Affan Yousuf equalized for Warriors four minutes later by scoring from a goal-mouth melee. Wilson restored Delhi’s lead in the 47th minute. The Waveriders sealed the contest in their favour when Wilson scored his second goal of the day just two minutes from the final hooter.PTI
