The CH&FC defense showed desperation and fight but the Soldiers finally broke through when Sudarake Dikkumbura went over the line to break the deadlock. Gayan Salinda missed out on the extras.
CH&FC drew back the deficit a few moments later through a penalty taken by Janith Chandimal. The Soldiers dominated possession in the first half but missed out on quite a lot of opportunities to score.
