Five minutes later it was Dixon Daniel Louis dribbled his way into the Eagles penalty area before firing his shot into the bottom corner of the net.

A minute after the half hour mark Ahmed Rasheed gave some hope to Victory and reduced the deficit to 2-1. His effort on goal went over Eagles goalie Sujan into the top corner of the net. Soon after Ahmed had another chance to score and make it all square but his effort from a narrow angle went over the bar.
