However, DK Pharma swiftly regained the lead in the 38th minute as Henjoimang Khongsai capitalized on a defensive lapse, finding the net and making it 2-1. Minutes before halftime whistle, a blunder by the Oranje FC goalkeeper, under pressure from Ronan Panmei, gifted DK Pharma a third goal, establishing a comfortable 3-1 cushion heading into the break.

With a halftime score of 3-1, DK Pharma showcased their prowess and resilience. Oranje FC, determined for a comeback, launched an aggressive second-half offensive.

Substitute Ashish came close to reducing the deficit when he latched on to a through ball on the wings and dribbled into the box before unleashing a shot that brought a save from the DK Pharma Keeper. Miit Adekar, then had a chance when he collected a long ball from the defence, turns and beats his marker but hits his final shot wide off the target.

As the game went on, Oranje continued with their attacking movements and created number of chances but lacked the finishing touches. A well-delivered free-kick from Ashish was headed across DK Pharma goal where Advait’s attempt failed to find the net.

As the clock ticked down, both teams had their share of opportunities. DK Pharma’s Ronan Panmei unleashed a long-range effort that went wide, while few moments later in the game Oranje FC’s Miit squandered a chance with a shot that went over the bar after Sahil had found him with a delightful cross in to the box.

In a match marked by errors and missed opportunities, DK Pharma emerged victorious over a determined Maharashtra Oranje FC. The encounter embodied the unpredictability and excitement that football fans crave, setting the stage for an enthralling season in the MFA Premier League.
