Goud made a great comeback with a Super Raid in the seventh minute. Jaipur's Ajinkya Pawar effected a running hand touch on opposition captain Surjeet Singh which reduced Bengal to 3 men by half-time; the score was 18-13 in favour of Bengal.

The second half started with many empty raids as Anup Kumar tried to force Bengal into do-or-die raids and was successful in it as Jaipur got rid of Jang Kun Lee in the 23rd minute to reduce the gap to 18-14.

But the next raid saw Vijin and Adarsh make a great Super Tackle on Hooda. The game slipped out of Jaipur’s hands with Maninder Singh making a super raid, taking Anup Kumar, Sunil and Sandeep Dhull out of the court with a bonus to make it 25-14.
