Prime News, National Sport, Kabaddi, Kolkata, September 12:- Bengal Warriors edged out U Mumba 29-26 in a last minute thriller in Vivo Pro Kabaddi League 2019 match at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in the city on Wednesday.
For Bengal Warriors, Sukesh Hedge scored eight raid points in 15 attempted raids while Mohammad Nabibaksh scored four tackle points.
For U Mumba, Arjun Deshwal completed his ‘super 10’ with 14 raid points in 18 attempted while Fazel Atrachali scored four tackle points.
U Mumba’s recent turn in form has largely been down to the improved raiding by Arjun and Abhishek Singh, but Warriors ensured that they didn’t run away with the game after the initial minutes.
The second half was a repeat of the first, as U Mumba’s good work in the raids continued to get undone by errors in the defence. Fazel Atrachali’s calming presence on the mat rubbed off on U Mumba’s young raiders as they repaid his faith to cut the lead to a point with under a minute remaining. But Rinku Narwal came up with a massive Super Tackle in the final minute to seal the match for the home side.
