PKL 2021: Monu Goyat’s brilliance helps Patna Pirates hammer Bengal Warriors

All
eyes
were
on
Monu
Goyat
as
the
Patna
Pirates’ talisman
reduced
the
Bengal
Warriors
to
size
with
agile
and
perfect
raids.
The
win
propelled
Patna
Pirates
to
second
on
the
points
table
as
Bengal
Warriors
stood
at
the
eighth
position.

Patna
Pirates
started
on
a
bang
picking
up
raid
points
through
Sachin
and
Prashanth
Kumar
but
were
soon
found
wanting
more
against
Bengal
Warriors’
Maninder
Singh.
Maninder,
the
star
raider,
brought
out
his
best
as
he
left
the
Pirates
looking
for
answers
from
all
corners
of
the
mat.

He
picked
up
points
at
will
and
overpowered
all
defensive
tactics
to
return
to
his
half
in
a
jiffy
with
every
passing
raid.
Patna’s
defensive
tactics
too
looked
in
place
for
the
first
few
minutes
as
Bengal
Warriors
struggled
to
keep
up
with
the
pace
of
the
match.

It
was
Maninder
who
helped
the
defending
champions
pick
up
the
lead
at
11-9
when
he
sent
Monu
Goyat
and
Mohammadreza
Chiyaneh
to
the
bench
in
a
single
raid.
He
soon
sent
Prashanth
Kumar
on
his
way
in
his
next
raid
as
Bengal
Warriors
opened
a
four-point
lead.

Patna
Pirates
soon
lost
their
way
and
found
all
their
players
on
the
mat
as
Bengal
Warriors
led
by
a
healthy
16-10.
Maninder
soon
registered
his
Super
10
when
he
escaped
from
Chiyaneh’s
ankle
hold
as
the
defending
champions
started
to
call
the
shots
with
an
eight-point
lead.

Sachin
and
Monu
Goyat
then
tried
to
put
Patna
back
in
the
game
as
they
slowly
tried
to
reduce
the
arrears
with
bonus
points
and
running
touches
but
Bengal
called
the
shots
at
half
time
with
a
21-16
score
line.

Bengal
Warriors
upped
their
defensive
game
after
the
break
when
Amit
tackled
Sachin
with
a
thigh
hold.
A
contest
within
a
contest
between
Maninder
and
Chiyaneh
was
brewing,
and
it
was
the
Maninder
who
emerged
on
top
in
the
Indo-Iran
battle.
Maninder
got
a
shoulder
touch
as
Chiyaneh
was
trying
to
retreat
after
a
tackle
attempt.

Patna
Pirates
slowly
tried
to
crawl
into
the
game,
reducing
the
deficit
to
just
three
points,
through
Neeraj
Kumar
and
Monu
Goyat,
who
scored
his
500th
raid
point.
Neeraj
came
up
with
good
defensive
work,
tackling
Rishank
Devadiga,
and
Monu
was
good
with
his
raids,
going
deep
and
scoring
a
bonus
point.

A
moment
of
failure
from
Maninder
when
he
stepped
out
of
the
mat
gave
Patna
Pirates
an
opening
and
they
tried
to
capitalise
on
that.
From
then
it
was
a
Patna
Pirates
show
as
they
upped
the
ante.

Bengal
Warriors
soon
stuttered
as
Rishank
Devadiga
lost
his
footing,
Sachin
got
a
running
touch
on
Amit
Nirmal
and
Neeraj
held
on
to
Ravindra
Kumavat
both
teams
were
on
level
terms
at
25-25.

Patna
Pirates
soon
took
a
four-point
lead
when
Sachin
reduced
two
Bengal
defenders
to
size
and
inflicted
an
all-out
on
the
defending
champions.
Maninder
too
looked
off-colour
as
he
tumbled
to
Chiyaneh’s
defensive
strategy
as
Bengal
looked
all
at
sea.

Monu
Goyat
then
brought
up
a
sensational
seven-point
raid
as
Patna
Pirates
raced
to
a
14-point
lead
at
39-25.
In
the
process,
Monu
also
registered
his
Super
10
of
the
match.
He
skipped
past
one
defender,
dodged
another
and
then
wriggled
past
the
remaining
defenders
as
he
came
to
his
half
in
a
jiffy
to
put
his
team
in
the
driver’s
seat.

The
lead
swelled
with
each
passing
raid
as
Patna
Pirates
stamped
their
authority
of
the
match
as
Bengal
Warriors
walked
out
of
the
match
with
no
points.
