However, the Indians quickly returned the balance to the game. Four minutes later, the Indian team Lalrindiki managed to score a goal that leveled the score.

And already in the thirty-eighth minute, Dangdung again went to the opponents’ goal and brought the fourth point to the team. However, the Chilean squad made the Indian team nervous. At the forty-ninth minute, the Chilean hockey player, through a penalty, could play one point for her team. This goal could be a step towards equalizing the score. But the Indian youth national team again demonstrated its advantage by scoring a goal in the Chilean goal in the fifty-second minute.
