However, the second stanza turned out to be an entertaining half as TUT were the first to open the score in the 48th minute. First Touch swiftly responded with a goal when they equalised four minutes later.
The sides could not be separated after 90 minutes and the match went into a penalty shootout where TUT emerged victorious.
