The Ahmedabad based ARA FC, founded back in 2016, registered their first win of the season. Their star forward Syed Shoaib Ahmed registered a hat-trick and the other two goals were netted by Parminder Singh and their Portuguese forward Dieye Hamidou.

The first half concluded seeing ARA lead by 3 goals to nil. The second half kicked off only for ARA FC to score two more goals. Syed completed his hat-trick at the 52nd minute and Parminder Singh put the final nail in the coffin at the 63rd minute. The final whistle by the referee concluded the match in favour of ARA FC romping to a massive  victory.
