The First Half
The first half was a crucial time for both the teams as it was a neck to neck scoring by both the ends. In the first 2 minutes, the scoreline was leveled with 2-2. The series of leveled score went on to 4-4 after 5 minutes. Bengal Warriors did take a lead with an 8-5 scoreline during the first half as their top raider Maninder Singh scored a two-point raid taking the Warriors ahead in this match.
However, the lead wasn’t for long, as the score once gain was leveled up by the efforts of the Dabangs and it was 8 all after 10 minutes in the match. The Delhi Dabangs scored an ALL-OUT (which is 2 points plus the points they earned by the team putting out all the players of the opponent) in the 11th minute lead in the scoreboard with 12-9. Delhi maintained the lead in the first half with 16-13.
The Second half
The Delhi Dabangs didn’t lose the grip since then and further went to keep the dominance alive in the second half as well. They scored yet another ALL-OUT in the 23rd minute of the match, putting the score 25-15. Jang Kun Lee of the Bengal Warriors tried his best to bring the warriors back to the game. He even scored a super 10 for the Bengal Warriors. Lee scored one last raid for the Warriors in the last few minutes. But that obviously wasn’t enough for the warriors and so Delhi won the match with a scoreline 39-30.
