Santiago (Chile), January 21
The Indian women’s junior hockey team rallied from a goal down to script a stunning 3-2 win over the Chilean senior side here. Deepika (39th minute), Sangita Kumari (45th) and Lalrindiki (47th) scored for India after Fernanda Villagran (21st) had given the hosts the advantage. Chile’s Simone Avelli (56th) pulled one back late in the match, but it was not enough to force a comeback.
It was India’s third consecutive victory on the tour. They had defeated Chile’s junior side twice earlier this week. — PTI
