U.P. Yoddha 38-44 Puneri Paltan

Only two tackle points for U.P. Yoddha and that should be enough to tell the story of this contest. Aslam Inamdar, Pune's young raider, garnered three tackle points, one more than the entire U.P's defence combined. A third win on the trot for the Paltan and boy, they are peaking at the right time in this tournament. 

Aslam Inamdar contributing with 12 points, which included 3 in the defence while Mohit Goyat secured a massive 14 raid points. Nadarajan chipped in with 4 tackle points and stole the show in the defence while his cover partner, Sanket Sawant, picked up three. As for UP, it was Surinder Gill's 16 points combined with Pardeep Narwal's 6 points and Shrikant Jadhav's 5 points kept U.P. in the hunt for a substantial period of the contest. However, credit to Pune. They did not let the lead slip away and stayed on top right till the very end.

A brilliant comeback from the U.P. Yoddha side after they had conceded a massive lead to the Puneri Paltan in the early moments of the game. The architects of Pune's dominance being their young raiders in Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat yet again.
