Delhi Waveriders held 2-2 by Ranchi Rhinos

Jan 30 2013, 12:47pm CST | by

New Delhi, Jan 30 (IANS) Delhi Waveriders drew 2-2 with second placed Ranchi Rhinos to maintain their unbeaten record in the Hero Hockey India League at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here Wednesday.

New Delhi, Jan 30 — Delhi Waveriders drew 2-2 with second placed Ranchi Rhinos to maintain their unbeaten record in the Hero Hockey India League at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here Wednesday.

Despite goals from Justin Reid Ross and Floris Evers, Rhinos were unable to take five full points, due to a couple of own goals.

Waveriders stay on top of the table with 34 points, with Rhinos in the second position with 29.

"We were not as good as we have been in the league so far. We made some mistakes today, and hopefully we would learn from them," said Waveriders' captain Sardar Singh.

Ranchi Rhinos drew first blood in this top of the table clash, in the 14th minute. Ashley Jackson showed some excellent skills to enter the Waveriders' circle before passing the ball to an unmarked Justin Reid Ross. Reid Ross struck an accurate hit past a charging Nicolas Jacobi to put the visitors 1-0 ahead.

Rhinos looked like scoring another goal soon, but Jacobi made a superb save. Waveriders' were a bit lucky to get the equaliser in the 20th minute, when an hopeful ball from the left flank struck the foot of a Rhinos defender and went in for an own goal.

Rhinos could have gone ahead the very next minute, when Prabhadeep's fierce strike had Jacobi beaten all ends up, but the ball hit right post and went out.

The game had suddenly picked up pace at this stage. In the 33rd minute, Rhinos again had a chance to take the lead, when Prabhdeep got a free ball right in front of the goal from left. However, Jacobi was quick to dive down, and save a certain goal.

Rhinos dominated the ball possession throughout the first half, but were unable to make it count as far as scoreboard is concerned.

Start of the third half again saw Jacobi making a couple of smart saves. Waveriders had one of the best chances of the quarter though, earning a penalty corner in the 46th minute. It turned out to be disappointing for the hosts though, as the push was not stopped properly and Rhinos goalkeeper was never threatened. They made amends for that though in the last minute of the third quarter, as a long hit from Oscar Deecke was successfully pushed in by Yuvraj Valmiki.

Rhinos could have equalised in the third minute of the final quarter, but were denied by another brilliant save from Jacobi, off a strong drag flick from Ashley Jackson. Rhinos eventually got their equaliser in the 61st minute when Birendra Lakra's brilliant pass from left found Vikas, who gave the ball to unmarked Floris Evers, who had a simple tap in to put his team on level terms.

Delhi coach Ajay Kumar Bansal said: "This draw has come to us at the right time. Every once in a while a team that has consistently climbed up should be checked so that they know the reality and work towards their goal. Having said this I would also like to mention that we didn't play up to the mark today and not that Ranchi out played us."
