Muvanlai Athletics have played seven matches, garnering 12 points from four wins and three lost games while UKB team are with 13 points from seven matches, winning four and losing two games and one drawn result.

Muvanlai Athletics put up a strong challenge to UKB, who are in a better position than the former in the league, to make some precise strikes and finally find the opening in 21 minute with Lunginthang heading home the goal.

Sounding the alarm, UKB unfurled their wings and it was Paolenlal, who came to the rescue finding the equalizer in 32 minute. However Muvanlai Athletics, unaffected by the goal, made a strong statement from Satgouthang, who pushed home the leading goal in 34 minute to enjoy the first half.

With mid field battle engrossing the good period of second half, Muvanlai Athletics breaks loose and Kaiminlen outfoxed UKB defense, to release a grounder in 72 minute to consolidate its position. UKB ever dependable Paolenlal mastered his own moves to crack home his second goal in the 76 minute, to bring some relief to his bench.

But Muvanlai Athletics came up with another surprise with Lunginthang dashing the hopes of its opponent for a comeback, with his second goal of the match in 84 minute for the deserving victory. Muvanlai players Thaolengou, Lunjapao and UKB player Mangoulen got a yellow card in the match.

Southern Sporting Union and GSC Churachandpur shared a point each after the two had 3-3 goals in the last match of the day.

GSC got the upper hand in the match but they let SSU make a comeback in the second half with their sloppy defense. GSC gained control of the game with Jesie getting the opening goal in 25 minute and later Seigoumang fetching the second goal in 41 minute. But in between Ch. Commander made the strike for SSU in 30 minute to trail by 1-2 goals.

SSU's frequent raids made the holes in GSC defense and H. Shital came up with the equaliser in 54 minute and little later L. Roshan came up with the leading goal in 76 minute to dictate terms. Finding themselves in deep trouble, GSC lunges at every opportunity and they get an injury time of 90 plus 1 minute with Kamlalzom finding the equaliser just in nick of time, to share a point each.

GSC players Nohmilen and Thanglalrem got booked with a yellow card from referee Yulung Lungshung.
