Kalinga Lancers made a comeback in Hockey India League by defeating Dabang Mumbai on Thursday. Kalinga Lancers had lost their opening match on 18th January against Uttar Pradesh Wizards.
Both teams scored zero goals till the half time but in the last 30 minutes three goals were made. The game was very entertaining; Dabang Mumbai was able to make 1 goal while Kalinga Lancers made 2 goals.
All the goals were counted as a score of 2 as per the new rule introduced in HIL2016; so the resulting score comes out to be 4-2.
With this win, the Lancers have secured six points from two matches, the same as Jaypee Punjab Warriors, to occupy the top of the table. This was the opening match for the Mumbai side.
