However, SPE managed to carve out the lone goal following a shocking blunder from the WPE’s goalkeeper. This was enough to seal their triumph and climb to the top of the group.

Civil Engineering vs. Mechanical Engineering: 1 – 1

The clash between Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering ended in a deadlock. This evenly matched encounter saw both sides display determination with the defense lines having lots of work to do. Mechanical Engineering took an early lead in the first half via a perfectly placed low shot by their right winger but were helpless against the rocket of a strike from Civil’s left winger in the second half.  As the game proceeded, both teams put in their best but neither team could secure a decisive victory.

AEE vs. IPE: 1-0
