The remaining time of the YOSC Khurai and Taphou FC match was played today and the match ended in a 3-3 draw earning YOSC Khurai a quarterfinal berth and Taphou FC packed their bags.

Earlier, in their match, Taphou FC had led the game 3-1 till the first half before the Khurai side came back with the equalizers in the second half.

A scuffle had occurred after the central referee booked Taphou FC defender for a handball and was awarded a penalty kick in favour of YOSC Khurai as Taphou FC strongly denied the handball.

The organizing committee finally intervened and decided to conduct the remaining match beginning with the penalty.
