Mar 11

In the 1st match of the day ARC faced the formidable Piramal team headed by Vishal Singh. ARC started of with a 1 1/2 goal handicap. ARC was charged up after their 1/2 goal loss on the previous day and wanted to make sure that the would not lose again. For the Piramal team Harsh Piramal was substituted by Shailendra (Mickey) Singh. Vishal Nihalani continued in good form from the previous day and keept feeding his forwards. The game was quite evenly matched however Piramal managed to take a two goal lead going into the 4th chukkar. Mickey Singh, playing after a long break, played a good game. ARC through the efforts of Vishal Nihalani, who scored 3 goals, managed to catch up and even took a 1/2 goal lead with just over a minute left in the game. However, it was not their day again. A last minute foul by ARC gave Piramal a 40 yard penalty which was converted by Vishal Singh. Once again ARC lost by 1/2 a goal but it was a well fought match and the team of Vicky Nihalani, Kamran Ahmed, Brian Alexander, Mitesh Mehta deserve a lot of credit for thir performance. This is one of the better ARC teams in recent years.

In the 2nd game the teams were not evenly matched. RVC/Cav was a 6 goal team and played against a -2 goal PBG/ASC team in the absence of Sangram Singh who was substituted by Altaf. PBG/ASC started with a 4 goal handicap and managed to knock in the first goal thus leading 5-0 in the initial part of the 1st chukkar. However, that was the last goal they scored. RVC/Cav kept scoring at regular intervals through the efforts of Ravi Rathore, Samir Choudhary, Col Kashyap. In no time the game was over and RVC/Cav won by a score of 14 goals to 5.


Mar 10

In the 1st game Navy/Cav easily defeated PBG/ASC by 11 goals to 5. Navy/Cav scored at will throughout the game.

In the 2nd game ARC started with a 1/2 goal advantage and jumped to a 1.5 goal lead with Kamran Ahmed scoring a quick goal right from the throw in. Thereafter Tata woke up and equalized the score and went into the lead by 2 goals and maintained it through most of the match. The ARC team combined very well and kept pressure on tata throughout the game. In the dying moments of the last chukkar Tata led by 1/2 a goal and Samir Suhag took a hit in. ARC managed to steal the ball midway and made a run for the Tata goal but were unable to convert. Tata won the match 5- 4.5.
