In the 56th minute, a foul inside the WR box meant the referee pointed to the spot and Caetano Fernandes stepped up to send the keeper the wrong way and make it 3-0 for his team.

Despite the three-goal lead, BOB continued to attack at the same pace and were guilty of not adding to their tally courtesy of some solid defending by WR, coupled with profligacy in the final third by BOB.

The game soon ended 4-0 in favor of Bank of Baroda
