The Kashmir side dominated the whole game with more of ball possession and regular attack. Kashmir had their real chance to take the lead in 30th minute when they were rewarded penalty but Kareem Nurain who stepped in to take the shot wasted the golden opportunity by hitting the ball way above the bar.

PIFA Sports played some good counter attacking football but they lacked the sharpness to beat the Kashmiri goalie.
