Patna Pirates proved too strong

for their opponents Bengal Warriors as they romped to a 50-30

win in an enthralling Pro Kabaddi League match here on

Saturday.

In the second encounter of the day, local side U Mumba

suffered a loss against dominant Gujarat Fortunegiants.

The Gujarat team held their nerves in the end to win

38-36 in what was a keenly contested match.

The Patna team, which was more effective in the both

raids and defence, inflicted an all-out, their first in the

game to extend their lead to 16-8, with six minutes remaining

for the end of the first half at the NSCI complex in Worli.

Such was Patnas dominance that they inflicted three

all-outs of their opponents in the game to come out

triumphant.

It was an off day in office for Bengal Warriors as

they slumped to their third defeat in nine games.

For Patna, Deepak Narwal (13 points) emerged as their

hero and was ably supported by 21-year-old captain Pardeep

Narwal (11 points) and Jaideep (5 points).

Deepak Narwal attempted 17 raids, in which he bagged

12 raid points, while he had one tackle point to his credit.

Jaideep emerged as the top defender as all his points

came as tackle points in seven tackle attempts.

Pardeep was effective from the start as he has grabbed

five points till the break which included four touch points

and a bonus, while Deepak Narwal earned his side six points

till half time.

Patna were cruising ahead as they lead 22-14 at the

half time.

After the break, there was no stopping Patna as

successful raids from their players continued.

They inflicted second all-out with six minutes after

the second half began to increase their lead to 32-14 and

later the third all out to take a firm control of the game.

Bengal inflicted an all-out with two minutes remaining

for the game, but that was too little and too late.

With this win, Patna Pirates moved up to the second

place in the Zone B standings as they have 28 points from 11

games.
