The game began with both the teams playing a very slow game. UP Yoddha and Telugu Titans played an even game till the 12th minute of the first half, with the only difference being that while the Yoddha’s stood at 9-9 with raid and tackle points, a major part of the Titans scoreline was basic bonus points. Moments later Surender Gill struck for the first time in the game to take UP Yoddha to a slim 10-9 lead.

This successful raid also resulted in the Yoddha’s inflicting an ‘All Out’ on Telugu Titans in the 13th minute helping them extend their lead and take the score line to 13-10. The Titans did try to make a comeback again heavily relying on bonus points but couldn’t attack enough to break the famed defensive wall of UP Yoddha, as the first half came to an end with UP Yoddha leading 19-14.

The second half started with Telugu Titans trying to stage a comeback but the Yoddha’s today displayed complete teamwork and never really let the Titans get a lead in the game. UP Yoddha’s defence was in supreme form today saving many ‘All Out’ moments and earning crucial points through Super Tackles.

However, this game also witnessed the return of Pardeep Narwal for the Yoddha’s who earned very crucial 10 points in the game. What stood apart in Pardeep Narwal’s performance was his sheer class and experience that helped him save an embarrassing ‘All Out’ situation alone for the Yoddha’s thrice in the final four minutes of the game. Narwal’s successful raids in the final moments of the game and 3 very important ‘Super Tackles’ by the Yoddha defence very well could be shining moments in their 39-33 win over Telugu Titans today.
