However momentum picked up in the second half with NESU player Y Sobha changing the statistics of the game with his goal in the 63 minute. But LYGSEDA were quick to reply with Paolenlal fetching the equaliser in the 68 minute to level 1-1 goals.

Boosted by the goal, LYGSEDA put much effort and came up with the leading goal from Seiminthang in the 73 minute but their joy was short-lived when S Bikash drew parity for NESU team, bringing up the equaliser in the 83 minute to hold on till the final whistle.

LYGSEDA player Paolenlal, Letminthang and NESU player Y Sobha, L Thoising got a yellow card from referee Th Raghu Singh for dangerous play.
