Ten-player Jawalakhel and APF played to a scoreless tie and split the points. Both teams had scoring opportunities in the intense game played on Saturday at Tripureshwar’s Dasharath Stadium, but they were unable to take advantage of them.

Adama Domvia saved the APF danger in the 18th minute by clearing Rahul’s cross on Abdul Aziz’s free kick. Fode Fofana’s attempt from outside the penalty area in the 24th minute was easily stopped by goalkeeper Angel Shrestha.

Hari Karki’s one-touch shot from Captain Navin Lama’s pass uplift the bar prevented APF from grabbing the lead in the 32nd minute. Anish Deula, the goalie for Jawalakhel, was beaten by Pradeep Lama’s hard shot in the 39th minute, but APF was unable to retake the advantage.

In the 48th minute, when goalkeeper Anish Deula barely saved Hari Karki’s header from Pradeep Lama’s cross pass, Rahul saved Jawalakhel’s crisis by clearing. APF surpassed 10 players in the 69th minute. After striking Hisav Thapalia in the face, Adama Dombia received yellow card.
