Jupiter FC did score in normal time against Christchurch FC but the goal was later disallowed by the referee, striker Liebert Fernandes comfortably got away from his marker and calmly scored past the goalkeeper, only to see the linesman raising the flag.

The most surprising moment was when Jupiter FC’s goal scoring machine, Romil Anand was made goalkeeper from the start itself due to the absence of their initial goalkeeper. He surprisingly didn’t disappointed, making some key saves during the match.

With the match ended 0-0, it was time for some actual drama. Yamik Holkar (Jupiter FC), Eranna Vadari (Christchurch FC), Vicky Thomas (Jupiter FC), Angel Andrews (Christchurch FC), Kunal Sonawane (Jupiter FC), Ethan (Christchurch FC), Prayas Holkar (Jupiter FC) all converted their penalty kick unless Fahad (Christchurch FC) misses his spot kick. Romil Anand (Jupiter FC) stepped up and scored the decisive kick.

It was Jupiter FC who was going through, and for Christchurch FC, they need to play 3rd division yet again next season.

In the second encounter, Dahisar United and Mumbai Railway Police cancelled out each other in normal time with Harvinder Singh (Dahisar United) and Jagdeep Singh (Mumabi Railway Police) scoring for their respective team.
