The Indian junior women’s hockey team kicked off their European tour on a high note, securing a 2-0 victory against the Dutch club Bredase Hockey Vereniging Push. The match, held on Tuesday, initially saw both teams engaging in a closely contested battle during the first half, which ended goalless as both sides tested each other’s strengths and defenses.

The deadlock was finally broken in the second quarter when Hina Bano successfully converted a penalty corner. This came after India had three unsuccessful attempts with set-pieces earlier in the same quarter. Hina’s goal gave the Indian team the crucial lead they were looking for.

In the third quarter, the Dutch club Bredase Hockey Vereniging Push intensified their efforts to equalize. Despite their aggressive play and earning three penalty corners, the hosts were unable to convert these opportunities into goals, thanks to the steadfast defense displayed by the Indian team.

The fourth quarter saw Kanika Siwach doubling India’s lead with a well-executed goal. Following Kanika’s contribution, the Indian defenders faced a barrage of spirited attacks from the Dutch side in the closing minutes of the match. However, they held their ground and managed to keep their opponents at bay, ensuring a clean sheet and a solid win.

Looking ahead, the Indian junior team is set to face Belgium in their next match in Breda, Netherlands, later on Wednesday. This victory sets a positive tone for the rest of their European tour, showcasing their preparedness and resilience against competitive international teams.
