The all important and winning goal was scored by Neilie Nagi in the second session. 

Kohima Eagles FC, who were semi-finalist in the 2017 edition failed to live up to the expectation. Jotsoma team were much better side between the two teams but their strikers were culpable in wasting numerous opportunities. The attacking midfielders provided the much needed pace and assists but their forwards lacked in clinical finish.

Kohima Eagles FC played under pressure and their talisman Shurhosul Zhotso was kept quiet for almost the entire session.

With the match heading for a goalless draw, Neilie Nagi rose on the occasion to score the winner through a header in the 66th minute after a superb assist from Theingam Pherim. 

Kohima Eagles FC tried their best to comeback but failed to break the strong defensive line-up as Jotsoma team hold on to progress to the final.

In the final, Jotsoma team will face the winner of the second semifinal between New Market XI and Sechü Zubza FC.
