For Kalinga Lancers, Lucas Vila converted a penalty stroke in the 22nd minute which he got after Rupinder committed a foul on him on the edge of the circle. Argentine Peillat Gonzalo scored the two other goals for the Odisha side in the 46th and 57th minutes.

With today's win, Delhi Waveriders are on second spot in the league table with 17 points from three wins and two losses while Kalinga, under the charge of India coach Terry Walsh, are at fifth position with six points from four matches.
