Navy were 1-0 up at half time through a field goal by Amit Goswami and made it 2-0 eight minutes into the second half via a penalty corner strike by captain A K Kiro before former champions Western hit back to restore parity.

Goals from WR's Amit Rohidas, off a penalty corner in the 43rd minute and an opportunistic field goal by Malak Singh six minutes later made it 2-2, promising a stiff battle ahead.

Navy though pumped in two goals in quick succession to seal the tie. Naveen Kumar deflected in a fine diagonal pass from Parteek Singh and Mohd Faheem Khan doing likewise off a forward pass from Ved Prakash as Navy went 4-2 up. Malak Singh pulled one back for WR two minutes from the end.
