Kolkata: Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB) won the inaugural Hockey India Senior Women Inter-department National Championship on the AstroTurf of the Sports Authority of India’s (SAI) Eastern Zone, Salt Lake on Sunday.
In a rather one-sided affair, the more experienced Railways defeated SAI 3-0. Karishma Yadav and Amrinder Kaur scored in the first quarter from penalty corners and Birjani Ekka completed the scoreline through a superb field goal in the second quarter.
West Bengal Sports Minister Aroop Biswas gave away the prizes. Olympians Dola Banerjee and Soma Biswas also graced the occasion.
