On the first day, the matches were played under Pool A and Pool B categories where Jodhamal Public School and KCIS qualified for the finals.
The match started with a tough competition, but soon KCIS got a penalty shoot-out and they scored their first goal. Then started the run for the win as Jodhamal was still at zero. After a tough battle between the two teams KCIS emerged the winner as Jodhamal was not able to score any goal.
