After a goalless first half, Kevin's shot from outside the box slammed into the top left corner of goal for 1-0. Fifteen minutes later, Daksh doubled the lead from close range.

D'Assisi coach Thomas Barretto said a change in tactics worked for his team. "In the second half I urged the half-line to move up and the aggression paid off", he said.
