Men’s field hockey day seven: Running recap

Tupper’s Efforts Fall Short

After a comeback led by Scott Tupper’s two goals, Canada and India ended their match tied 2-2.

A physical game that stayed even for the first half of play turned to India’s favor in the third quarter when Akashdeep Singh scored on a penalty corner.

Tupper had an answer for that when he found success on a corner shortly after.

The back and forth continued as India scored on a deflection that went high into the cage. Tupper swooped in again to save his team from being down a point and scored his second penalty corner goal.

With seconds remaining, Canada had control of the ball. Unfortunately they couldn’t capitalize on the chance for the win, which doused its hopes to move on to the quarterfinal round.
