The visitors hung on till half time to go into the break with their noses in front.

PIFA Colaba endured a difficult second half as the home side pressed for an equalizer and put the men in orange under a lot of pressure. But Abdul Siddhique’s men showed great spirit and thwarted the relentless hosts.

However, the Kashmir side’s prayers were answered as they equalized in the 59th minute, through Faruq Chaudhary. The Kashmir side upped the ante after getting on even terms as PIFA were struggling to cope with the growing LoneStar Kashmir attacks.

Eventually in the 89th minute, Faruq Chaudhary popped up again to put Kashmir in front and spark celebrations in the stands.
