Bangalore Lions 2006 PHL Champions

Bangalore Lions beat Chandigarh Dynamos by 2-1 to win this seasons PHL Championship. I really enjoyed this season's PHL, followed it very closely and quite obivously routed for the 'Lions from Bangalore'. Even though I saw only the final moments of this match, it was the last 3 mins which decided the Championship. Hari Prasad from Bangalore Lions who scored both the goals and help win the match for Lions, won the 'Lion of the day' award.

The 'Lions from Bangalore' are surely roaring in Chandigarh. It has been a great support from IHF, ESPN, Adidas, ING-Vysya, Western Union and the other sponsors who are keeping Hockey alive in this cricket crazy nation. Atleast after India's defeat in the 3rd and the final Test against Pakistan, which helped Pakistan win the Test series, I just hope people encourage & support different sports.
