The first game of the day got off to a tentative start. Both teams sized each other up, with India more in control initially.
India got their first chance on the counter attack. Vakkaliga dribbled his way into the D but could not get his shot away in time. India SPread out in attack with noticably frequent switches of play between Vakkaliga and Tirkey. They did quite the oposite in defense, preventing South Africa from getting a hold.
Khandkar made a nice run, passing to Tirkey who stoop open in the D who was able to shoot the ball into the goal, unchallenged.
Indian stepped it up after the goal in an attempt to widen their lead. South Afrika were unable to keep the Indian attack at bay, neither through long flicks, nor through quick short passes.
