Sukriya scored her first and Nepal’s fifth in the 65th minute of the match following Amita Bhul’s lob pass. Sukirya scored her brace in the 72nd. Rebika Nepali’s shot from outside the box was blocked by Bhutanise goalie Diktsha Rai which was then tapped in by Sukriya in the rebound.

Senu Pariyar, who replaced Barsa in the 83rd minute scored a goal two minutes later after stepping onto the field. She beat the goalkeeper and placed the ball in the 85th.
