Jharkhand continued their free-scoring run in the competition as they registered a 10-0 win over Uttar Pradesh and secured their place in the quarterfinals.

Ritu (30′) and Kamna (41′) scored once each from the spot in the first half against West Bengal and skipper Raveena sealed the victory in the 81st minute as the scoreline finished reading 3-0.
