The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) won the 66th National Senior Hockey Championship at the Ayub Hockey Stadium in Rawalpindi by defeating National Bank of Pakistan (NBP).

The game
remained deadlocked at 1-1 till the full-time whistle. WAPDA emerged victorious
after the final was decided on penalty shootout.

President of
the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) Brigadier (retd) Khalid Sajjad Khokhar
hailed the players for their riveting performance. He also shared his insights
to improve the national sport.

Olympians
Kaleemullah and Manzoor Junior asked the hockey federation to play their role
in facilitating the players by organising more of these tournaments.

“There
are talented players across the country but who is willing to accept the
responsibility of supporting them?” asked Kaleemullah.

“We
have a pool of up to 350 players which includes junior and senior players. If
you can’t improve the monetary position of the players then at least facilitate
them by conducting similar events,” Manzoor Junior said.

The winning
team and players were awarded prizes for their performances in the tournament.
