Uttar Pradesh Hockey upset Hockey Chandigarh by 5-0 goals to move into the semi final of the 12th Hockey India Sub-Junior Women National Championship 2022 at Hockey Stadium, Khuman Lampak on Thursday.

Taking on the formidable Chandigarh team, Uttar Pradesh Hockey left no stone unturned right from the first whistle but were unable to bring changes in the goal statistic as the first two quarters rendered goalless.

Learning their lesson well, Uttar Pradesh Hockey gave a hard time to Chandigarh Hockey and earned their break from a penalty corner in the 32nd minute of play and Suneeta Kumari converted it to goal for the lead.
