JALANDHAR: Khalsa Warriors continued their invincible run with a hard-fought 57-50 win over United Singhs in the Wave World Kabaddi League on Saturday.
The warriors won their seventh match in eight games, with one tie against their name. They now have 15 points while United Kings stayed at eight after seven matches alongside Lahore Lions (six matches) and Yo Yo Tigers (seven matches).
The first quarter witnessed a neck-and-neck tussle with Shafiq Muhammad Butt of United Singhs opening the quarter with a successful raid and then a double touch foul by Khalsa in the next minute added to the confidence of United Singh.
Then Khalsa found their feet as strong raids by Gagandeep Singh Jogewal and Jasmanpreet Raju of Khalsa Warrior brought them back quickly into the game.
United Singhs Captain Sandeep Singh Sandhu easily outplayed the opposing captain Gurmeet Singh in fourth minute, but this see-saw battle continued as the first quarter ended 13-all.
The second quarter started with an excellent stop by Gurpreet who stopped Butt. Sandeep Singh made two successful raids in a short period before Khalsa stoppers Gurpreet and Satnam Singh Sattu came into their form to give their side a slight edge 27-26.
Khalsa Warriors seemed determined to move ahead in the third quarter as the game became more tensed. Khalsa Warriors’ success in raids by their stars Gagandeep and Manjot Singh Gill took their team into a strong position.
Shafiq Muhammad Butt who had been stopped a bit by Khalsa was once again his aggressive self as he won some points. But by the end of this quarter Khalsa Warrior built a slight advantage at 39-35.
In the final session that edge stayed with Khalsa who closed the match at 57-50. Manjot Singh Gill and Jasmanpreet Singh were once again their star raiders. The seven-point gap might seem big but at no stage were United Singhs outplayed in the match.
The next match is between Vancouver Lions and Lahore Lions, while on Sunday Khalsa Warriors meet Yo Yo Tigers and United Singhs take on Punjab Thunder in the final match to be played in Jalandhar.
