But the joy short lived as Football Lovers Association Manipur, rattled by the goal, regained composure and struck back with Lempa fetching the equaliser in 49th minute to level 1-1 goals till the final whistle to share a point each. ATVFA players Md Ajizur and Somorendro received a yellow card in the game for dangerous play.
