Prak- Praktoni XI
The Prak-praktoni team got an early lead from a brilliant play from the kick-off. The first half ended with the scoreline being 1-0 in favour of the younger side.
From the start of the second half, the losing side looked more attacking and it was a matter of time before a stunning header from a Prak-praktoni striker found the back of the net. Then both sides looked to clinch the victory in dying minutes of the game as quite a few shots hit the woodwork during the match.
It ended undecided in the regulation time and it was left for a shoot-out thriller to get the result. The Nabyo-Praktani XI had the last laugh as they kept their calm to score in the decider spot-kick.
Former East Bengal midfielder Ranjit Mukherjee came as a sub in the last part of the second half to show some sparks from his old feet.
