Haryana Steelers fall to U Mumba 42-32 in their penultimate match at home
Sonepat: Haryana Steelers couldn’t seem to find their groove at home, as they went down for the second time at home to a strong U Mumba team, who are currently running on an unbeaten streak in Vivo Pro Kabaddi Season VI. Monu Goyat however finally found some form, as he got a super 10 for the Steelers but it was a little too late. This loss meant Haryana Steelers have lost their last four games at home.

However, at the end of the first half, U Mumba led 24-13, with Haryana’s defence struggling to get going in the first half scoring just one tackle point.
Haryana’s defence woke up in the second half as they scored three tackle points in five minutes and reduced U Mumba to just three men. U Mumba forced a super tackle in the 29th minute to lead 28-19. Haryana Steelers responded with a couple of super tackles of their own to cut down the lead and with less than five minutes to go, U Mumba led 33-27 when Siddharth Desai came up with a two-point raid to kill all hopes of Haryana’s comeback. U Mumba inflicted another all out in the 39th minute to extend their lead and then Monu Goyat came up with a super raid in the dying seconds of the match as they managed reduce the deficit to nine points before ending up with a final score of 32-42 in favor of U Mumba.
