There was not much of action in the first half except in the 25th minute when unmarked Akram Moghrabi failed to control a nice pass by skipper Henri.
Changing over, Lajong dominated the proceedings, but lady luck failed to smile on them. In the 56th minute, Eugenson Lyngdoh volleyed the ball over the rival defenders and set it for Sushil Kumar Singh whose shot missed by inches.
In the 64th minute the tourists came close to taking the lead when Bineesh Balan volleyed the ball. But his shot kissed the post and went wide.
In the 69th minute, Jacob Lalrawngbawla took a long-range shot from outside which hit the woodwork.
Just before the long whistle, Akram Moghrabi, taking a long try found the back of the net and earned three points for his team and earned the man-of-the-match award.
