Lalliangsanga and Lalramzauva were both guilty of missing good opportunities in the first 45 minutes.
They find themselves two goal up within a span of three minutes with strikes from V. Lalchhuanawma and Liberian midfielder John Kweku Ampong.

It looked like Ramhlun North FC were on their way to a much valuable 3 points until Rochhingpuia provided a late twist in stoppage time. His effort from outside the box flew into the net after Sangpuia seemed to misjudge the ball as it bounced just in front of him.
