A formidable footballing machine, Chitral was already tipped as the favorites for its cumulative experience at national and international levels, besides its history as the runner-up from the 1st edition of Ufone 4G Football Cup Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The relatively younger Mardan side was, however, believed to have the footballing prowess to turn the tables on opponents.
The Tehmas Khan Football Stadium dazzled under the floodlights on the chilly Saturday evening where the two teams clashed for glory. Experience prevailed as DFA Chitral caught Mardan off-guard at the very beginning of the contest. Just 3 minutes into the match, Khaleequz Zaman capitalized on a beautiful assist from Muhammad Rasul to send the ball wheezing past the goalkeeper through a well-timed header. In the 40th minute, Chitral’s Muhammad Rasul had the ball meet the net but it was flagged an ‘off-side’. The second half featured continuous attacks on both sides but no more goals could be scored and Chitral won the match 1-0 to lift the trophy.
