Shillong, Jul 2: A tiebreaker was called for to separate Rympei FC and Salini Colony in the 7th Invitation Wahiajer Football Tournament 2023 at Wahiajer Stadium yesterday.
After regulation time ended 2-2, Rympei pipped Salini Colony 5-3 in the penalty shootout to claim victory.

However, Salini Colony fought back soon after, with Banker Muksor (58′) and Badki Sumer (65′) bringing the scores level once again before penalties saw them lose the fascinating contest.
Biam Pathaw was named Player of the Match.
