Both teams earned raid points in the opening minute of the game to level the score at 1-1. Shabeer Bappu and Kashiling Adake tried their best to form a lead but found strong resistance from the Steelers’ defenders. The scores were level at 8-8 in the 15th minute of the game. Despite Anup Kumar doggedly tried to avert an all-out, the Steelers inflicted one just before the half time and claimed a 15-11 lead. 

Six minutes into the second half, Steelers scored back to back points to lead 19-12. Displaying serious comeback intent, the Mumbai outfit inflicted a super tackle to reduce the deficit to five points. Soon after, Kashiling Adake executed a super raid to make scores 19-18. It was closely followed by a two-point raid from Anup Kumar to inflict an all-out and lead the game by 22-20. 

Steelers kept fighting till the last minute of the game but the PKL season 2 champions displayed maturity and protected their lead.
