A final between Parle United and UK United saw the latter come-back twice into the match, but fell short as they lost the title by a narrow margin of 4-3. UK United showed no sign of giving-up, having fallen behind 1-0, initially, they got themselves back on level-terms only to fall behind once again, but a spirited team effort made it 2-2 only for Parle United to produce two moments of magic, making it 4-2 as a third goal by Patrick Mascaranhes proved to be a mere catch, which winners Parle United were able to survive.

A dominant team and individual performance from Parle United saw the winners add two more triumphs as Dan won the player of the tournament title and Danston Rodriguez was duly credited with the goalkeeper of the tournament title. Meanwhile, UK United’s Patrick Mascaranhes was awarded the top-scorer of the tournament.
