Putting behind their last night’s defeat against Delhi, Punjab Warriors made a promising start to the encounter and created trouble for the Mumbai defense from the onset.

Agustin Mazzilli put Punjab Warriors ahead in the seventh minute by scoring from a rebound after young Affan Yousuf’s initial shot was saved by Mumbai goalkeeper PR Sreejesh.

Punjab Warriors got a golden opportunity to extend their lead minutes later when they earned a penalty corner but they failed to utilize the chance.

Undeterred by the goal, the Mumbai outfit came back strongly and scored two goals within a span of three minutes to take the lead.

First Mark Gleghorne (15th minute) converted a penalty corner and then Ravipal Singh (17th) scored a field goal to give Mumbai Magicians 2-1 lead.

The Punjab side pressed hard for the equalizer in the second quarter and finally managed to get it in the 30th minute when Malak Singh scored with a field effort.

But nine minutes later, Mumbai Magicians restored their lead through Vinaya Vakkaliga.
