Bhopal, 5th March 2017: Ahead of their Hockey World League Round 2 tournament in Canada in April 2017, the Indian Eves continued their winning ways as they beat Belarus 3-1 to clinch their third successive win in the Five-match Test Series here on Sunday.
After a goal-less first quarter, it was Belarus who took the lead when their skipper Ryta Batura scored in the 24th minute through a penalty corner. But the visitors failed to hold on to the lead as India skipper Rani scored two back-to-back field goals in the 35th and 39th minute to put India in command with a 2-1 lead.
Deepika scored India’s third goal in the 42nd minute to take a 3-1 lead while the defenders did well to keep the visitors from scoring in the final quarter to ensure a win.
