21 minutes into the game , a goal from Chindi Gukut through a penalty kick almost caused an upset that would have cost the defending champions the opportunity to earn any point in their bid to start the defense of the championship title. The defending champions however, had to wait until the 61st minute to pull the string that led to the equalizer as a shot fired by Mutang Danat close to the eighteen yard box volleyed past the goal keeper and made its way straight into the net to ensure that the defending champions started tournament with a point to spare.
