Pawar scripts Central Railway’s win

Mumbai : Rajendra Pawar notched up the first hat-trick of the tournament to ensure Central Railway took off on the right track, by coasting to a convincing 6-2 win against Abhi Foundation in a Super Division match of the MHAL (Mumbai Hockey Association Limited) League – 2016, and played at the MHAL Mahindra Stadium, Churchgate on Wednesday.

Besides Pawar’s fine feat, Central’s enterprising forward Mohd Nizamuddin got a brace of goals and seasoned Narad Bahadur converted from their third short corner to complete the scoring. Abhi Foundation, who tried their best to match the superior railway outfit, managed to reduce the margin of defeat with goals in each half from Ashish Bhosle and Mithilesh Kumar.

Pawar was later declared Man-of-the-match and was presented with a cash prize of Rs 1,000 by MHAL Vice-President Gurdip Singh Chandok.
