A collective performance helped Puneri Paltan thrash Haryana Steelers 45-27 in Match 108 of Pro Kabaddi League Season 8.
Mohit Goyat picked up a Super 10 (12 points including 2 tackle points) and defender Sombir clinched a High 5 (7 tackle points) as Pune controlled the proceeding from the first whistle to the last.
Haryana had a poor day in both defence and attack with their usually reliable cover defence combination of Jaideep and Mohit also struggling. The win will help Pune improve their chances of making it to the Season 8 Playoffs. Ashish was the highest scorer for Haryana with 8 points.
Pardeep Narwal shines as UP Yoddha
