Indian juniors won the Under-21 six-nation invitational hockey tournament at Gniezno, Poland defeating the hosts 3-0 in their final outing on Sunday. The Indians grabbed the maximum 15 points from five matches to emerge champions. Though the Indians were below their best on Sunday, converting only one of their 14 penalty corners, their domination of proceedings was pretty obvious. Sardara Singh converted a penalty corner to give India the lead in the eighth minute. Seven minutes later, Raghunath made no mistake from the penalty spot to double the lead. The third goal came from the stick of captain V Raja, who scored in the 44th minute after a brilliant solo run. The home side was no match for the Asian giants who conceded only one penalty corner. India had earlier defeated Pakistan (4-0), Czech Republic (12-0), Russia (10-2) and Germany (3-2). (PTI)
