The match of the day was symptomatic of their performance in the league itself. While Minierva showed intent for a good part and converted it into a goal through Bali Gagandeep in the 18th minute, Gokulam merely played a less intense game.
Even after conceding the goal, the Kerala outfit did not show any urgency to find an equaliser in the regulation time or even in the six minutes added time.
Eventually, Minerva emerged deserving winner to garner full points.
