Displaying a well combined game Sunrise went ahead in the 45th minute when Ageyekum E Amoafo fired home from top of the box receiving a high ball from midfield.
The policemen staged a fightback after the break and restored parity in the 73rd minute when Joseph Maslai found the target with an angular drive.

On the second ground, riding on a 16th minute goal by Thomson Langthasa, FCI defeated SAI SC. The FCI team shared the ball more and created several openings but due to lack of proper finishing they could not win the match by a big margin.
