Journey to CEAT UTT Season 2 final: Falcons TTC
Falcons TTC performed as well as can be expected from the defending champions. They started off their journey in CEAT Ultimate Table Tennis (UTT) Season 2 powered by Kellogg’s with a close tie against Maharashtra United that ended in their favour (11-10). However, they were handed a massive defeat by Dabang Smashers (17-9) in their next tie. Thus, the Falcons ended their Pune leg with one win in two matches.
The Falcons rose from that loss like a Phoenix from ashes as they stepped into the Delhi leg, reincarnating with a 15-6 triumph over Warriors T.T.C. that placed them in a good position in the points table. They replicated their performance in the next tie against Empowerji Challengers (15-6), establishing themselves as one of the strongest contenders for the title.
Falcons played the final match of the group stage, registering a competitive 11-10 victory over RP-SG Mavericks, making a positive start to their Kolkata leg. They were through to the semi-finals and defeated the Mavericks again to book their final berth.
With the kind of performances they have produced throughout the competition, Falcons pose a tough challenge to their opponents Dabang Smashers as they eye for their consecutive CEAT UTT title.
