It was IOC who took the lead in the 3rd minute of the game through a short corner conversion to which ONGC responded attacking on several occasions but could not get past the IOC custodian. However after the half break, ONGC bounced back with consecutive combined attack and outclassed the opponents by registering three consecutive goals. Diwakar Ram netted two for ONGC through short corner and was adjudged player of the tournament.
