In the first game of the day at Mumbai Football Arena, India Rush Sc were held onto a 1-1 draw by Salsette FC.

The game began with Salsette FC coming off the blocks quickly and applying pressure on India Rush SC from the word go. The early pressure paid off as Aditya Despande capitalized on a defensive miss pass to find Sameer Sawant in space who slotted home the opener in the very first minute of the game.

India Rush soon started getting into the rhythm and attacking more in search of an equalizer and were eventually rewarded at the stroke of halftime when Abhishek Chakraborty headed home the cross from Pradip Pal to make it 1-1. The second half saw some back and forth but no goals as the game ended 1-1 at the full-time whistle

A frantic start in the second half saw Sellebrity take the lead in a matter of 3 minutes when Brendan Pires‘s shot found the back of net. Iron Born made a quick comeback when they won a penalty of their own as Arfat completed his brace with a clinical finish.

Tausif Malik then found the winner in 70th minute as the game ended 3-2 in favour of Iron Born – CFCi
