Disappointed with the sudden takeover, AFC threw more men in the opponents half started to find the gap and it was Khongkham Thoithoi again who came to the rescue slotted home the ball and levelled the score again at 2-2 in the 30th minute.
The second half saw both teams trying to capitalise over one another but their defense lines played a commendable job in neutralising all possible threats they made.
