Adding on to the 3-0 lead and by the end of the first half, India accumulated a huge 9-0 goal difference over Trinidad & Tobago with the help of Jaspreet Kaur (18th min), Rani (19th and 25th min), Captain Ritu Rani (22nd min), Deepika (27th min) and Anuradha Thokchom (31st min).

The second half of the match saw the Indian women’s team showing no mercy to their opponents as they went on to add another five goals to the winning tally. Starting the goal spree in the 41st minute, it was Jaspreet Kaur who made no mistake in converting the two penalty corner opportunities in the 41st and 48th minute, followed by Anupa Barla (53rd min), Deepika (64th min) and Ritusha Arya (68th min), which helped India in sealing the game at 14-0.
