Raiders from both sides started the match by picking up points and keeping the other team on the toes. The scores were leveled for the most part in the first half of the match. With just four minutes remaining in the first half and scores at 10-10, Sumit Singh made a successful raid while Amit Sheoran tackled Abhishek Singh to give Bengaluru a two-point lead. Pawan Sehrawat got a Super Raid in the 19th minute of the match and got the Bulls a seven-point advantage over the Mumbai based team.

In the second half, the Bengaluru defense took hold of the game as they tackled Athul MS in the very first raid for Mumbai in the second half. Sehrawat also chipped in with his contribution on defense as he got hold of Abhishek Singh. Banty then scored a two-point raid to send Mumbai's top defenders Fazel Atrachali, Surinder Singh on the bench, reducing the team to just three people on the mat. Saurabh Nandal tackled Athul MS and Pawan got two back to back successful raids as the season two champions were handed yet another all-out 27th minute of the match, and the Bulls leading 28-16. 

U Mumba fought back as Abhishek Singh went on a successful raiding spree and eventually completing his Super 10. The Mumbai team kept on chasing the Bulls and closed the score gap to four points by inflicting an all out in the 35th minute of the match. However, that did not seem enough as the Bulls never gave away their lead and the last few raids went in Bengaluru raiders wasting their time during the raids. Abhishek Singh and Athul MS scored 10 and 9 points respectively but the effort went in vain.
