U Mumba continued their winning ways against Jaipur Pink Panthers to claim their second home victory Mumbai yesterday.
They were under constant pressure but they brought all their experience into play and held their nerve to win 36-32 in a closely-fought game.
It was a battle between U Mumba’s Kashiling Adake and Jaipur’s Pawan Kumar early in the first half as both the raiders kept scoring consistently. U Mumba raiders kept their head and increased their lead to 5 points by inflicting an All-Out on Jaipur in the 8th minute courtesy of some solid raiding by Captain Cool Anup Kumar.
Jasvir, however, put up a brave fight to pick up another U Mumba All-Out and reduce the deficit to just two points in the 19th minute with the scoreline favouring the home side 32-30. Under pressure, the U Mumba side gave Jaipur the opportunity to level the scores at 32-32 with just a minute left but star raider Adake had other plans.
He came up with a game- changing 2-point raid with just seconds on the clock to tilt the match in Mumbai’s favour and the U Mumba defence before long lapped up Jasvir in his final raid to seal victory with a 36-32 scoreline.
