However things started on a disastrous note from the very first minute for ICL U-19, when Daniel Fernandes slid one past the keeper to put JMJ in to lead.

Eight minutes later Pratik kadam doubled the lead to put ICL U19 in trouble. In the 35th minute Brent Fernandes pulled one back for ICL to reignite hopes of comeback however a minute later, Reuben Fernandes stuck the third for JMJ to douse any spark of comeback before completing his hat-trick with two more goal. The game ended at 6-1 score line with Killinger Raunak adding one more to the JMJ’s tally.
