Jaypee Punjab Warriors ended the league phase of the Hero Hockey India League on a disappointing note, being beaten 2-3 by Delhi Waveriders at their home ground Surjit Singh Hockey Stadium in Jalandhar.

Warriors, who have already sealed their place in the semi-finals, lost their second home game in two days, being beaten 3-2 by Ranchi Rhinos on Monday. For Waveriders, yet to be beaten in the tournament, Rupinder Pal Singh scored with a drag flick, before Oscar Deecke and Lloyd Norris-Jones scored a goal each.

With both teams having already booked their place in the semis, the game was expected to be played at good pace, and that's what happened at the start, a HIL media release said.
