It was a fantastic start to our Kolkata leg as the Gujarat Giants comfortably defeated the home team, the Bengal Warriors, with a score of 41-32. This victory brings us closer to securing a spot in the playoffs, and we are very proud of our Giants. We have been on a winning streak of late, and we are eager to carry this momentum forward in the matches to come.
The game began positively for the Bengal Warriors, with Maninder Singh conducting a successful raid to put them in the lead early on. Despite their initial advantage, we quickly bounced back. Fazel Atrachali made a successful tackle, and then Parteek Dahiya, who had an outstanding performance in the last game against the Warriors, delivered a Super Raid to put us ahead.
We kept our momentum, inflicting an All Out and further extending our lead. Parteek continued to shine with another Super Raid, consolidating our position. Although the Warriors attempted to stage a comeback towards the end of the first half, we maintained our lead with a score of 18-14.
In the second half, Parteek continued his stellar performance with another Super Raid, further asserting our dominance. Another All Out followed, putting us in a comfortable position. Although the Warriors fought back with successful raids from Maninder Singh and managed to reduce our lead with an All Out, Fazel and Rakesh ensured our victory with their exceptional performances. Fazel conducted a successful raid as well, while Rakesh managed a Super Raid to help us end on the winning side.
Overall, it was a brilliant performance from our team, and we aim to maintain our winning momentum in our upcoming game against the Bengaluru Bulls on Sunday. With the playoffs in sight, we are determined to give our all in every match.
