Chandigarh: Ending their losing streak, Chandigarh Comets finally registered their win in the inaugural World Series Hockey tournament, defeating Sher-e-Punjab 3-1 here on Thursday.

The Chandigarh Comets had earlier suffered defeat to Bhopal Badshahs and Chennai Cheetahs.

The beleaguered Comets scored their first goal as early as in the second minute through Gurjinder Singh, who converted a penalty corner. Sukhwinder Singh Gabbar then doubled the scoreline for the hosts in the ninth minute of the first quarter.

Despite Punjab having the likes of former India stars Prabhjot Singh, Deepak Thakur and Gagan Ajit Singh in their side, the Comets played some attacking hockey before a thin home crowd.

For Punjab, Matthew Hotchkis was the lone goal scorer in the seventh minute of the last quarter.

Gurjinder was again in the thick of action in the 12th minute of the fourth and last quarter scoring another via a penalty corner.

In the last quarter, Hotchkis' goal which he had scored by deflecting a pass from Prabdeep was overruled by the video umpire.

Chandigarh goalkeeper Harjot Singh made some good saves and even saved a penalty stroke in the second quarter.
