Around the half-hour mark, YSA were awarded a free-kick which Vipul Gorai defence failed to clear away properly, the ball fell to an unmarked Aniket Kanojiya whose bullet of a shot beat everyone to find the net.

With a comfortable 2-0 lead, YSA were happy to sit back and defend with regular forays into the attack as Vipul Gorai FC looked to come back in the game. However, there were no more goals as the game ended 2-0 with YSA clinching the title.
