Ramblers pulled off a shock 2-1 win against DTS in a menâ??s Premier League indoor hockey match on February 27.
Ramblers hadnâ??t won a match all season and were firmly entrenched at the bottom of the log, while DTS just two days earlier went down 4-3 to Unam in the final of the Unam Pepsi Indoor Tournament. But they didnâ??t have an answer against a fired-up Ramblers who defended superbly and caught DTS with quick counter-attacks.
