Match Report

India ended its tournament on a high note, claiming seventh place after a 3-1 win against Azerbaijan. Both teams were lethargic in the first half of the morning game with scoring chances being few and far between.

The only goal of the first half came on a penalty stroke in the 28th minute when Azerbaijan’s Zhang Suleymanova easily scored on India’s Yogita Bali.

India came out in the second half must stronger and immediately started pressuring Azerbaijan. Their efforts were rewarded in the 44th minute when captain Saba Anjum put in the only field goal of the game to even things up at one. Four minutes later Chanchan Thokchom gave the Indians their first advantage with the 2-1 penalty corner goal.

The one-goal lead stood for another 20 minutes, but India was never really in danger of surrendering the game-tying goal. But for good measure Anurhada Devi Thokchom, Chanchan’s twin sister, put in an insurance marker with two minutes left in  regulation to bring the final to 3-1.
