On a heavy pitch, in wet and windy conditions (what else do you expect at Birds Barn?), the Kestrels eventually proved too strong for a battling Bharat side. The visitors went ahead mid way through the first half, but crucially the Kestrels had a stroke of luck with an own goal from a corner with the last kick of the first half. A strong start to the second half failed to yield the decisive goal, but heavy pressure eventually told with late goals - another from a well worked short corner routine which pleased the coach.
