KARACHI: A brace by Atiq Arshad steered National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) to a comfortable 4-1 victory over Customs and brought his team a step closer to clinching a semi-finals berth in the Premier Pakistan Cup 9-a-Side Hockey Tournament at the Abdul Sattar Edhi Stadium yesterday.
The youngster netted twice, first off a penalty corner in the 10th minute and then in the 29th minute to pave the way for the bankers to register their second straight win.
He was well-supported by Arsalan Qadir and Dilbar Hasan who scored one goal apiece in the 25th and 40th minute respectively. Customs’ consolation goal was netted by Usman in the 31st minute.

“I have so far scored three goals in the tournament, which is a big achievement when you share the field with other more experienced players,” Arshad told The Express Tribune.
