Forwards Himanshu Thapa and Atul Yadav began their aggressive game right from the start. Himanshu Thapa chased the ball and fired a shot into the net in the first 5 minutes of the game. It took no time for the scoreboard to update from 1 to 2, when at 7th minute forward Atul Yadav thrashed another successful goal. The two goals in the first ten minutes have pumped up the players with a great sense of zeal. Red Star tried to gain momentum by creating many chances to goal but was denied any chance by the zestful defenders and goalkeeper of Techtro. In the first half only, the scoreboard of Techtro FC escalates from 2-0 to 4-0 after two more goals by star forward Himanshu Thapa at 17th and 24th minute marking his Hattrick.

At 55th minute Himanshu Thapa smoothly netted the 5th goal for the team also upgrading the list of his goals from 3- 4. The attacking and enthusiasm of Techtro were not diminished here and the audience was pumped up with excitement when at 78th minute 2 back-to-back goals were thrashed by Himanshu Thapa and Midfielder Prashant Yadav.
