Both the teams went hard on each other in the most important battle of their lives. But at the beginning of the first half, it was the Warriors who grabbed the control in their hands as some of the watchful raids of Sukesh Hegde for Bengal saved the high-ranked side against the second season title-lifters U Mumba in the enthralling match. As a result, Warriors inflicted their first All-Out of the night on U Mumba at the end of the first half and led the scoreboard by 18-12.

Though in the second half of the game, Mumba boys struggled very hard to come back but the strong defence of Bengal Warriors put them at bay. Maninder Singh’s troop marked another All-Out of the night in the 10th minute of the restart and increase the gap between both the squads. However, the Fazel Atrachali-led team also return the favour back with their first All-Out of the game against Bengal Warriors and reduce the margin. At last, the efforts of Mumba boys went in vain as Warriors emerged victorious in the semifinals with 37-35 verdict.
