In the second quarter final, former champions DYSA and TDL came face to face in a match that many say was between stamina and skill.

However, TDL came back into the game through a goal from Tenzin Tsangpa. DYSA’s goal keeper Samdup could not swiftly react to a ball that hit the woodwork and came back. Tsangpa hit a first time volley past the goalkeeper to level the game. TDL midfield dominated most part of the game but failed to convert. It looked like the two teams would have to play extra time or penalty shootout but it was not to be. DYSA were awarded a free kick for a hand ball by a TDL player in stoppage time. Taking the set piece, DYSA’s Affi sent the ball into the eight yard box to find his striker Urgyen Sangpo who headed the ball past the goal keeper into the right right of the net.
