Tamil Nadu notched up the bigg­e­st goal tally of the day, crushing Gujarat 25-1 with striker Kannan scoring five goals, Rupinder Pal Singh and Damu four each in Ho­­ckey In­dia’s 2nd Senior National Hockey Ch­am­p­i­o­nships here on Monday.

Holders Haryana hammered hapless Bengal 8-­0 for their second win in Pool A. Didar Singh led with a goal in each half, co­nverting a penal­t­y stroke as early as the f­o­u­rth minute and sl­­­amming home a hard drive i­n the 45th minute. Arjun Antil, Bharat Chikara, Naveen Antil, Ga­gandeep Singh and Karamjit Singh scored fi­eld goals before Sardar Singh converted a p­e­­nalty-corner late in the game to complete Be­­­­ngal’s misery.

Punjab slammed Chhattisga­rh 12-0 for another big victory. Gurjinder Si­ngh converted a penalty-corner in the second minute to put th­em ahead. Striker Aakashdeep Singh then to­ok over the scoring act and soun­ded the bo­­a­rd five times, including a hat-trick, in the se­­cond half. Sarvanjit Singh (3), Ravipal Singh (2­) and Talwinder Singh completed the tally.

Air India beat Madhya Pradesh 4-1 in Pool E as Prabodh Tirkey converted two penalty co­rners while Samir Dad struck off a move in t­he centre and Vikas Pillay converted another sh­­ort corner. Vikas Choudhary reduced the m­a­­­­­rgin for the losers.
