In an action-packed first half, Gurjinder Singh opened the scoring for PNB in the ninth minute but Mithilesh levelled the scores seven minutes later. ONGC turned up the heat in the second half, scoring three quick goals through Suman Kujur (42nd), Jagwant Singh (50th) and Navjot Singh (52nd) to seal the tie in their favour.

Later, Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) were held to a 2-2 draw by South Central Railway (SCR).

Kusha JP (12th) and Ankit Nath (18th ) struck for SCR while Roshan Minz (8th) and Deepak Thakur (47th) scored for IOCL.

The ONGC-PNB game began on an even keel, with both the teams going toe-to-toe with each other in the first few minutes. After a good passage of pass and play, PNB drew the first blood through Gurjinder, who made no mistake in finding the back of the net from inside the striking circle.

The goal however didn’t deter ONGC’s confidence as they struck back immediately through Mithilesh in the 16th minute.

The teams were locked 1-1 at half-time.

ONGC came out all guns blazing after the break and went ahead through Kujur, whose drag-flick from a penalty corner hit a defender’s stick before finding the back of the net.

Down 1-2, PNB pushed hard and won a penalty corner in the 45th minute but ONGC custodian Simranpreet made a good block to deny Gagandeep.

From then on, ONGC took control of the game and soon increased their tally through Jagwant, who created space from himself inside the opponent’s circle before directing his shot into the net past the helpless PNB goalkeeper Jasbir Singh.

A minute later, Navjot added another with a simple tap-in.
