U Mumba established a 17-6 lead at half-time which appeared huge because till then Bengal Warriors had just managed to score two points each in defence and attack. The other two were courtesy U Mumba as Rakesh Kumar and Rishank Devadiga stepped out of court.
     
Bengal Warriors suffered as Jang Kun Lee, their main hit man who had literally tormented Jaipur Pink Panthers yesterday, was absolutely clueless yesterday in the absence of raiders Nitin Tomar and the off-colour Mahesh Goud.

U Mumba was strong both in defence and attack and the cutting edge this time came from their attack which initially destroyed the rival defence. And when their defence came up with unbelievable tackles, especially from the left-corner Fazel Atrachali, who had a cent per cent success record of six out of six tackles, the Kolkatans fate was sealed.

This was the Kolkata outfit's sixth straight loss to U Mumba in the history of the league. The win for U Mumba, however, doesn't alter the position of the champions. They trail second placed Bengal Warriors, who have 37 points in 11 matches, by two points.
