In a high-scoring encounter at the Tau Devilal Indoor Stadium, Panchkula, the Bengaluru Bulls outclassed the Haryana Steelers with a resounding 53-39 victory. While the win saw the Bulls bow out of the tournament, they ended their season on a high note, while the Steelers secured a crucial eliminator spot against the Gujarat Giants. The match was a masterclass in raiding by Bengaluru's star, Sushil, who dominated the proceedings with an astonishing 22 raid points.

The Bulls wasted no time in asserting their dominance, with Vikash Kandola drawing first blood and their defense quickly following suit with a tackle point. Haryana's Tejas Patil responded with a point, but the initial minutes saw Bengaluru dictating the pace. Sushil then took the center stage, unleashing his raiding prowess. He orchestrated a clinical all-out on the Steelers, collecting points at will and putting immense pressure on the opposition.

Haryana tried to fight back with Vishal Tate and Tejas Patil contributing valuable raid points, but Sushil remained unstoppable. He continued his relentless raids, amassing points consistently and leaving the Steelers' defense bewildered. Despite a brief second-half surge from Haryana, Bengaluru maintained their control thanks to Sushil's brilliance. The Bulls' defense also played a crucial role, executing timely tackles and keeping the Steelers' raiders in check.


Haryana's hopes were dashed when they suffered another all-out, effectively sealing their fate in the match. Sushil continued his onslaught in the final minutes, reaching the 20-point mark and eventually finishing with a match-high 22 points. His performance was simply outstanding, and he was rightfully declared the star performer of the match. Bengaluru's defense also deserves credit for their disciplined performance and crucial tackles throughout the game.

For Haryana, the defeat was a disappointing end to a promising campaign.

This victory marked a significant moment for Bengaluru Bulls, even though their season ended with this match.
