Lahore Lions outplay Quetta Panthers to win 1st Women Hockey League

Lahore, Feb 8, 2017: Women Hockey League, Final’s result was no surprise.  Lahore  Lions  had scored the highest number of goals in the league phase; hadn’t conceded a single goal. They had comprehensively defeated all the opponents during the league phase including  Quetta Panthers, who they faced again today in the final.
Quetta did put up some fight in the first half though Lahore’s superiority was never in doubt. They created more chances including penalty corners but poor finishing let them down. Quetta too had PCs.
It was goalless at the end of the first 30 minutes.
The second half was more one sided. Lahore entered Quetta’s circle almost at will and no less than seven penalty corners came their way. Two of them were converted by Ishrat Abbas, both through forceful carpet shots.
Lahore Lions: 2   Quetta Panthers: 0
Scorer: Ishrat Abbas (40′ & 46′) both off PCs
