Both the outfits scored in the first-half itself as the game ended in a 1-1 draw, giving a point each to either side.

U Mumba responded well and pushed forward to find the equalizer but KSA defender Kamlesh Nadar made several key interceptions and broke U Mumba’s rhythm.

On the other end, it was Floyd Dharmai who defended brilliantly throughout the game. The former Kenkre FC player kept KSA’s attack at bay. U Mumba’s constant pressure paid off in the additional time of half-time.

Daniel Muthu found himself in the scoring position and finished his effort perfectly to level the score. At the break, the score was evenly poised at 1-1.

Both the outfits were brilliant defensively which kept the game alive. Forward Aashish Lalge was lively around the box but couldn’t manage to break past U Mumba’s defense. In the end, the points were shared by either sides in what was a lively and entertaining game of football.
