Earlier,
Bengaluru
Lions
overcame
a
0-2
deficit
to
post
a
thrilling
7-2
victory
over
Mysore
Panthers
to
begin
their
campaign
on
a
winning
note.
The
City
team
shares
the
top
spot
on
the
leaderboard
along
with
Mandya
Bulls
at
seven
points.
KGF
Wolves
are
third
at
six
points.

The
7-2
score-line
defied
the
looks
of
an
easy
encounter
and
Panthers
registered
a
win
in
the
women’s
singles,
their
trump
match
to
go
2-0
ahead.
The
Lions
fought
back
with
victories
in
the
men’s
doubles
and
singles
event
respectively
to
restore
parity
and
then
edged
out
Panthers
in
the
mixed
doubles
match,
their
trump
match
narrowly
to
gain
2
points
and
go
4-2
up.
With
three
points
at
stake,
the
Super
Match
could
have
gone
either
way
as
the
City
team
narrowly
won
22-20.
A
loss
would
have
meant
a
victory
for
the
Panthers.
