Haryana Steelers succumbed to a 27-45 loss to Puneri Paltan in their last Zone A match on Sunday.
Haryana Steelers' poor defensive performance was the main reason for their third consecutive defeat. Vikas Kandola put a solid all-round performance for Haryana Steelers and scored 11 points.
Nitin Tomar got 10 points whereas Rajesh Mondal chipped in with 8 points to lead Puneripaltan to a comfortable win.
Inaugural champions Jaipur Pink Panthers, playing their first match of the season lost 32-39 to U Mumba in a thrilling match in Chennai on Wednesday.
It was a disappointing first game for Jaipur Pink Panthers as they squandered a healthy first-half advantage. Former India captain Anup Kumar had a quiet match as he scored just four points and Deepak Hooda too disappointed with just two points.
Jaipur led 15-13 at halftime and looked the likelier of the two sides to win the encounter for large parts of the second half.
But in the last four minutes, U Mumba turned the game on its head with an all out, leaving Jaipur trailing by eight points.
Jaipur could never recover from that as U Mumba completed a memorable comeback.
