Sachin steals the spotlight

Sachin, Patna’s star raider was the undisputed architect of their victory. He scored eight points in the first half alone which kept the Steelers’ defense on edge. His relentless raiding and deft touches helped the Pirates build a comfortable 18-15 halftime lead.

Defensive ability

The Pirates’ defense was equally impressive effectively shutting down the Steelers’ raiding threats. Neeraj Kumar, Manish and Krishan formed a solid barrier in the first half blowing out 7 tackles and leaving the Haryana raiders frustrated and empty-handed.

Dominance in the Second Half

The Pirates continued their persistent march in the second half which was merely a formality. Manjeet, with 13 points and Sudhakar M with 5 points joined the raiding party tormenting the Steelers defense even more. The Pirates scored 28 points in the second half compared to the Steelers’ meager 18 demonstrating complete dominance over the game.

Haryana’s problems worsen

The defeat is a bitter pill for the Haryana Steelers who are still struggling with consistency. Their star raider Vinay who scored only 12 points struggled to find his rhythm and the lack of support from the other raiders caused their problems. The Steelers defense was also transparent as they were unable to stop the Pirates relentless attacks.

Moments of Truth

Sachin’s three-point raid early in the second half extended the Pirates lead to 10 effectively breaking the Steelers spirit. Later, Manjeet’s stunning Super Raid in which he eliminated three defenders in quick succession sealed the match’s fate demonstrating the Pirates’ tenacity.
