Wellington had proved its excellent form in the series by effortlessly winning their initial matches against both United Sikkim as well as Shillong Lajong. All bets were on them to take the final match but the Lajong boys proved their mettle and drove the home fans wild as they defeated Wellington 3-2 to win the series.
