UP Warriors beat Puneri Paltan 50-40 in Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 at Sheraton Grand in Whitefield here on Monday. Riders Surender Gill (21 points) and Pardeep Narwal (10 points) scored Super 10 in an intense kabaddi match with a lot of defensive errors for Warrior.

Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat had a Super 10 for coach Anup Kumar’s Pune team, but they did not get any help from the strike defense which conceded a lot of points.

The first half was a high scoring affair with just one empty raid in the first five minutes. Pardeep Narwal started the action with a three point super raid and he definitely sets the tone for the other raiders. Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyet jointly helped Pune to the first all-out of the game in the 10th minute but the Warriors bounced back immediately.

It was raining super raids on both sides and Surender Gill’s three-point effort with seven minutes left helped the Warriors all out. Pune’s Vishal Bhardwaj and Yodha’s Sumit were likely to err in both the left corners and conceded a lot of points in the first half which ended 20-20.

The Warriors made a brilliant start to the second half with Surender Gill’s attack aggressively. His four-point super raid in the 5th minute paved the way for a second allout which helped the Warriors open a seven-point lead. He and Pardeep Narwal took turns to pick up points away from Pune and finally got them all out in the 10th minute.

The UPA scored a whopping 20 points in the first 10 minutes after the restart and opened a 15-point lead. Both Pardeep and Surender crossed their Super 10 while Mohit Goyat did the same for Pune.

Aslam Inamdar made a comeback in the 12th minute of the second half with a 3-point super raid. But it was a night for Pune defenders to forget Surender Gill by easily picking up points. Despite the best efforts of Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat, Pune could not cross the distance as the warriors got a valuable victory.
