Despite both teams finding opportunities through penalty corners, a goalless first quarter unfolded. While India was eager to take the lead and begin their campaign on a positive note, the opening goal evaded them. Similarly, India were unavailable to convert either of their three penalty corners in the second quarter as well. 

The deadlock was finally broken in the third quarter, when a crucial penalty corner for India resulted in a goal from Hina Bano, bringing the scoreline to 1-0. Bredase Hockey Vereniging Push aggressively pursued the equaliser, but their inability to convert any of their three penalty corners in the third quarter kept them trailing.
