Warangal Warriors v/s Gadwal Gladiators

Warangal Warriors 23 - 37 Gadwal Gladiators
30 Jan 2017 - 20:00Warangal

Warangal Warriors vs. Gadwal Gladiators was without a doubt, one of the fiercest matches of this season of Telangana Premier Kabaddi. The Gladiators came armed to the teeth, and the Warriors, well… they showed up…

While the previous match saw Siddipet Stallions playing patient mind-games with Nalgonda Eagles, Gadwal started swinging right from the very first moment, and rained blow after blow upon Warangal in this match. It’s hard to pick a specific defining moment in the match simply because there were so many. The first half closed with Warangal trailing by a solid 16 points, and they went on to claim only 13 more points in the second half. They did show a flash of fire at the 18th minute of the second half, but it was far too little and far too late. Gladiators Mallikarjun and Srikanth won Best Raider and Best Defender respectively. Special mention must be made of Sagar Srikrishna as well, for his stellar defence tonight.
