Red Lions win second Hockey Pro League match against India

The Belgian men’s hockey team the Red Lions (FIH-1) have won their second match of the weekend against India (FIH-4). The first match on Saturday ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Belgians. However, this was put right on Sunday with a 2-3 win.  

The Belgians had clearly learned their lesson from Saturday’s defeat. What they lacked in efficiency on Saturday was compensated for in Sunday’s game. Hendrickx opened the scoring on 3 minutes with a penalty corner.    

The Indians equalised at the end of the first quarter through Prasad. De Kerpel equalised early in the second quarter only for Belgium’s one-goal advantage to be wiped out again when Rohidas made it 2-2.

The winning goal for Belgium came on 25 minutes minutes when Plennevaux put the Red Lions 2-3 up.   

The extra three points leaves the Belgians with a total points tally of 14 points.
