The KP-AJK match provided great entertainment for the well-sized crowd, as there were many moves from both sides. Both the teams had opportunities, but were denied by the other side. But just as it looked like it was going to be the goalless draw, striker Mehreen struck the all-important goal for Khyber PK.

Its difficult to think that Misha is no more with us. She was one of the strongest point in our game plan, said Sadia who also went to Jordanian capital of Oman four years ago as official of Pakistan Women Futsal team during Third Women Futsal Championship 2006. A five minutes silence was observed before the start of the match between Diya FC-Punjab Group-A tie at the Jinnah Stadium to pay tribute to Misha Dawood. The same thing happened at Karachi later in the night when Karach Energy faced Islamabad United in the second semi-final of Super Football League at Peoples Sports Complex, Karachi. Nineteen-year-old Misha was flying out to the capital to join her team for 12-team sixth National Women Football Championship at Jinnah Stadium. Misha rose to prominence two years ago when she scored a hat-trick against Sindh Soccerities in the inaugural National Women Football Club Championship 2008 at Colony Sports Stadium, Malir Town. Robina Irfan, the chairperson of the Pakistan Football Federation Women Wing informed that she studied in Karachi Grammar School and was a dedicated footballer. It was her desire to take Diya to the top of the podium in ongoing show in their fifth attempt in the showpiece event of PFF Women Wing. Formed on October 11 2003 through the efforts of Sadia Sheikh, Diya made debut in the 2006 edition and is the regular participants of the event as Sindh No.1 female soccer club. She was a utility player who used to be fit in every corner of the pitch. This tragedy has put us all in most painful position, said Sadia. She added that such was her passion for the game that while studying abroad, she still managed to play in the National Championship.
