The much-anticipated match between Moscow Magic HC and KGS Hockey Academy did not disappoint the enthusiastic Tiruvallur hockey fans. Both teams entered the turf with a win each in their first match, making the match more intriguing.

The first quarter of the match was a treat to watch, with both teams creating good chances and displaying great defense on either end. However, in the second quarter, Moscow Magic's coach, Kumar's strategy had a massive impact on the game. Magicians held the ball in control well over an experienced KSG team. Abbas received the ball from Mohan on the left flank and produced a couple of mesmerizing dodges in the far corner and pulled an excellent goal at the 22nd minute.

"Abbas's goal was a masterpiece, I have never seen such a spectacular goal before," said Petchimuthu, a fan of Moscow Magic HC.

Magicians captain Prakash scored a screamer in the penalty stroke awarded, which further pushed their lead. However, KGS's coach, Thirumalvalavan, did not let his team down, and they bounced back in the third quarter. They bombarded the Magician's defense with vengeance, resulting in a field goal by Saravanakumar in the 43rd minute.

Meenakshisundaram, a fan of KGS Hockey Academy, said, "Saravanakumar's goal was a game-changer; it lifted our spirits and gave us hope that we could come back."

However, Magician Abbas Ali scored yet another brace from a quick counter-attack, his second in the league in 2 matches in the 44th minute, extending their lead again. In the dying minutes, Vinodhan of KGS's team made a clinical finish in a well-executed Penalty corner, making the score 3-2.

Coach Kumar of Moscow Magicians said, "I am pleased with my team's performance, and it's good to see them implementing my strategy on the field. However, we need to work on maintaining our lead in the final quarter of the game."

On the other hand, Coach Thirumalvalavan of KGS Hockey Academy said, "Although we lost, I am proud of my team's performance. They fought until the end and gave their best. We need to work on converting our chances into goals."
