The game today was one of the most awaited match. Both of the teams started off well, however the few minutes before half came lucky for MMC as the ball punched by keeper Raja Babu Thapa(SC) got deflected back to the SC's net.  SC got lucky couple of times as the shot from MMC hit the framework. SC tried their tactics out to get back in the game but newly substituted Pujan Uperkoti's(MMC) header from Bishal Rai's(MMC) corner at 81st minute brought down SC's hope. Six minutes later Uperkoti's goal, SC conceded third goal under pressure. The goal was scored by Adeleja Somide(MMC) with a wonderful header. Cedric Aba scored a late goal for SC on 91st minute but it didn't suffice to get their side back and the game ended 3-1 in favor of MMC. Heman Gurung from MMC won man of the match award for his heroic performance.
