In the match, Punjab got penalty in 36th minute which they were able to convert into goal. J&K got couple of excellent chances to equalize the score but were not able to utilize these chances . In the closing minutes of game, Punjab knowing they have upper hand kept wasting time in order to keep JK away from scoring an equalizer. Match ended with 1-0 score line in favor of Punjab.

If enquiry outcome comes in favor of J&K and match is awarded to the team then they will be have to beat Himachal by huge margin to make it to the main round.
