Ashley Jackson helped Ranchi Rhinos beat Delhi Waveriders 1-0 in their second outing in the Hockey India League in Ranchi on Monday. Jackson sounded the board in the dying minutes to give Rhinos the victory after they narrowly lost to Uttar Pradesh Wizards 2-3 on Sunday. Keeper Francisco Cortes, who won the man-of-the-match award came up with three stupendous saves, including two back-to-back saves, to thwart Waveriders from scoring as the match was deadlocked till the last minutes before the final hooter.

In the evenly contested match, Rhinos got two penalty corners while the Waveriders failed on all their three chances. Cedric  D’Souza,  Coach  of  Delhi  Waveriders  team  said, “It  was  a  close  match. However, there is not much ground lost and we will be better prepared for subsequent matches.
