PSL Rangskhen went through on penalties 6-5 against Lumkynsai Smit after neither side could find a breakthrough during normal time, the tournament’s Organising Secretary Syntem Kamwamut Nengnong informed.

The second match saw Paraladei Smit run away with the game 4-0 thanks to their strong line-up of players. Two goals were produced in the first 10 minutes through Wanlamsuk Nongkhlaw (2′, 9′).

Bishar Kharumnuid scored the third in the 55th minute and Nongkhlaw then claimed his hat-trick in the 69th.
