The competitive first half ended with no score on the scoreboard.

The second half began with the same mode as both the teams surged themselves to score the first goal of the match. ICL Younstars controlled the game with their effective passing and formation. Poisur Gymkhana were also delightful with their moves but was not agile while striking the ball for the goal. The strikers of Poinsur constantly received several good chances to convert them for the first goal, but their players couldn’t pounce on them.
