Jwmbla Brahma set the ball for Jessy from the right flank and Jessy drove home with second attempt from inside the small box. Green Valley goal keeper Cheerandeep Chattopadhaya could be held responsible for the third goal as he neglected in collecting the high ball and follower Syed easily beat him with a soft header.
