However, the Matunga side went ahead 12-11 at the end of third quarter. In the fourth and final quarter, when scores were locked at 12-12 with a little over a minute left, Shardul Mandave scored a two-pointer to give the defending champions the lead. The Matunga outfit then added a point through a free throw to reduce the margin and, with a second left, had the opportunity to win the tie having earned two free throws but Yugandhar Ghadge failed to find the basket on both occasions.
