Mohit Goyat was the star for the Puneri platoon as they beat the Bengaluru Bulls 37-35 in the 70th match of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 at the Sheraton Grand in Whitefield here on Saturday.

Raider scored 13 points (including three tackle points) as Pune stopped Pawan Sehrawat and the Bulls from reaching the top of the points table. Bengaluru never really controlled the match and their lack of all-out proved costly in the end.

Coach Anup Kumar’s team had three successful reviews which played a key role in ensuring a two-point victory.

Pune started the match on the front foot with their raider Mohit Goyet scoring a decisive raid point. He was duly supported by his Defense Marshal, Sanket Sawant in the cover position. Coach Anup Kumar also changed his proven corner combinations of Baldev Singh and Vishal Bhardwaj for Sombir and Karamvir for the match.

Mohit’s two-point raid in the 10th minute reduced the Bulls to just two on the mat. This changed the balance in their favor and the Pune team was finally all out in the 13th minute to open a three-point lead.

But Pawan Sehrawat quickly found flaws in the Pune defense to reduce the margin. The first half ended 16-15 and the Bulls were one point behind.

Mohit Goyat’s two-point attack early in the second half paved the way for another all-out. Pune opened the scoring with a five-point lead and kept up the pressure on the Bulls who looked awkward in defense.

Pawan Sehrawat, his main raider, was seen playing in the right corner and confusion allowed the platoon to make a six-point lead with 10 minutes left.

In the right corner Sombir got a high 5 for the platoon but his riders made stupid mistakes in the final stage to allow the Bulls to return to the match. With one minute left, Pune had a two-point lead and substitute Shubham Shelke made a crucial touch point to help them win.
