A terrible goalkeeping error made both the outfit concede in the second-half as Somi and Lalchhuanmawia scored quick goals for Western Railway and Indian Navy respectively, leaving both the teams settling for a draw.

The Railways started off brightly with excellent passing and composure which started to pressurized Indian Navy.

Indian Navy’s Captain Raman Rai was booked early in the first-half for a mistimed challenge.

Few minutes later, Clayton D’Souza could have doubled Western Railways lead. His powerful right footed shot whispered past the post.

With two minutes left for half-time, Indian Navy from nowhere equalized.

Lalchhuanmawia provided a glorious ball to GTK Sharma, who placed his left footed shot into the back of the net.

A minute later, Indian Navy could have got the lead but the number 9 Britto somehow blasted his effort over the bar from five yards.

In the second-half, two goalkeeping errors gifted both, Western Railways and Indian Navy a goal each.

With twenty minutes left on the clock, Western Railway’s Somil lashed a loose shot from 20 yards towards goalkeeper’s near post. Vishnu terribly parried it away which gave Western Railways a 2-1 lead.

Although a minuter later, same error occurred in the other half.
