Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), Amritsar bagged the title in the 6th SNBP All-India Hockey Tournament (Boys' Under-16) at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, here on Friday.

SGPC, Amritsar overcame resolute debutants Dhyanchand Academy 4-1 to improve upon their 2019 runners-up performance, to win their maiden title and pocket rupees one lakh cash prize.

In an equally-contested first half, both teams shared honours. The debutants drew first blood through Krishna Mohan (37th) before the Amritsar team restored parity through Sahibpreet Singh (44th).
