Ajinkya Nalavde Jersey no.10 scoring the lone goal of the match for the Railways as it proved costly for the blues as the match ended 1-0 against their favour, all credit goes to the defensive line who hold their nerves until fulltime, with Nadeem Khan Jersey no.10 for CBI was awarded as the best player of the match

A highly tempered game which saw four players going in to the referee’s note book  for a yellow card which counted 3 for the CBI players and one for the winning side.

The 7th match of the Cup again saw a lone goal from Francisco Salin Jersey no.19, with his early strike in the first half saw his team qualify for the next stage as they will face Western Railways.

Coming to the last game of the day which was played between Western Railways & Kenkre FC with the kick off time at 8:30 pm, which was also victimised as a very high tempo game ended up in the favour of the Maron & White outfit as they got two goals to one leaving behind the other team of Kenkre FC that is the senior team back home. Hoping to get them back better and stronger in the upcoming future.
