At the other end, Sao Jose came close in surging ahead but Marian Mascarenhas shot wide from hand-shaking distance. Crossing over, Parish Youth put up an improved display and
went all out in search of the match-winner and found success soon after resumption, when Neves Noronha bulged the net after he received a pass from his colleague from the top of the box. Stung by the setback, Sao Jose made valiant attempts and went out in search of an equalizer but the rival rearguard was too strong and did not allow their rival attackers any space to penetrate inside the rival territory.
