Samruddhi, who later scored 4 goals for her team, opened the scoresheet for Kolhapur at the 5th minute. She doubled the lead at the 9th minute. Furthermore, Sanika and Shrutika found the net to give Kolhapur a 4 goal lead at the end of the first half. Kolhapur’s rampant form continued as the outfit scored thrice at the second half. Samruddhi completed her hat-trick at the 28th minute and scored the quadruple at 30th. Sakshi put the final nail in the coffin as Kolhapur eased past Solapur with 7 goals to enter the Semi-Final.

As the second half commenced, Pune found the net twice to head towards the final-four round.

On the final encounter of the day, Buldana pulled out all the stops to ensure their way to the Semis. In a feisty first half, Buldana scored twice and Nagpur replied intending to charge the game up. In a battle for glory in the second half, Buldana got the better off Nagpur as Sakshi Hiwali whipped the net at the 47th minute to take her team to the semi-final.
