India hammer Pak 6-1 in classification clash

Gordon Johnston leads Canada past India 3-2 and 2018 World Cup berth

India thrashed Pakistan 6-1 in the Hockey World League Semifinals (IE).

The winning team will play the 5-6 position match while the losers will go on to take part in the 7-8 classification game.

With no goals scored in the third quarter, the final 15 minutes kept the spectators at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Stadium on the edge of their seats.

The icing on the cake for India, however, came late in the form of Mandeep Singh, from a wonderful field goal.

It is pertinent to inform that the league is also the qualifying round of the next year's World Hockey Cup. He received a pass from Ramandeep, ran into the circle alone and had only the goalkeeper to beat but could not control the ball and ended up missing the goal. Thumbs up from Roelant Oltmans as Akashdeep Singh makes it 3-0 to India. Pardeep Mor with a hammering drive into the goal and it looks like Talwinder with the final touch at the near post.

1631 hrs IST: Second quarter underway. Soon, a clinical left side move was guided into the goal by a lunging Ramandeep.

Ramandeep scored in the 28th minute to make it 4-0 for India. "Pakistan did not have one shot at the goal; not even one penalty corner, nothing", said Oltmans. A packed Pakistan box and Ramandeep Singh gets a wee bit lucky to get a centimeter of space to slam the ball past the Pakistan keeper from close range. Pakistani goalkeeper dived full length to his right and deflected the ball away with an extended stick.

There was an end to end stuff as both teams displayed a fast brand of attacking hockey that kept both coaches on their toes but the start of the second half saw Argentina double their advantage when Manuel Brunet tapped in an easy goal in the 34th minute.
