LAHORE - Pakistan juniors managed to beat South Africa juniors 2-0 in the second hockey test at Durban Monday. Pakistan led 1-0 at half time. By comparison it was Pakistan's slipshod performance particularly the forwards were guilty of squandering away chances. After remaining undefeated hitherto in this on going series, forwards' over-indulgences in holding the ball too long when it should have been fed to constitute a goal-fetching move, turned out to be the cause of this low scoring win. Deep defense and the midfield did their job well keeping the South African forwards at bay with their well rehearsed positional play. Pakistan earned their first penalty corner in the 15th minute and fullback Muhammad Ateeq converted with a powerful drag-flick in the left corner of the goal. Pakistan's pattern didn't change on resumption as the forwards continued to fumble and fizzle while the defense successfully thwarted the South African attacks even not allowing the hosts to take a single penalty corner throughout the well fought contest. Pakistan doubled the lead in the 55th minute when they were awarded a penalty stroke from an unwarranted infringement in the South African striking circle. Kashif Ali's conversion gave no chance to the South African goalkeeper. "It is for the first time on this tour, "Chief Coach Jehangir Butt said after the match, "that the forwards have let the team down. It was a selfish play which we have witnessed. But the defense has performed excellent and we hope that the forwards will display more sense and commitment in the third Test to be played on 23rd April (Wednesday)."
