The Indian Women Hockey team ended their South African tour on a positive note on Tuesday, as they posted yet another convincing win against Scotland. A brace from Rani helped India bounce back from the defeat against Germany in their last game, and register a 3-0 win over their opponent.
The first quarter saw both the teams going on the attack on each other’s business side of the field. But the Indians, who earlier beat Scotland on the tour, were high on spirits and in the 2nd quarter saw Rani score a goal through penalty corner, hitting the ball into the nets brilliantly and giving no chance to the opponent’s goalkeeper to react. India continued its pressure and maintained good ball possession, keeping the opponent’s defense busy all throughout and scored their second goal by Vandana Kataria.
Indians started the third quarter on a high as they took over from where they left and were seen in the opponent’s circle trying to score on the opportunities. But unfortunately, for the Indians they could not find the nets, leaving the score untouched at 2-0 at the end of the third quarter.
The fourth quarter brought good news for the Indians yet again as the third goal was added to the goal tally by Poonam Rani. The Indian Women Team concluded their South Africa tour with a 3 – 0 win against Scotland.
