Daniel Chima Chukwu (3rd minute) and Boris Thangjam (10th) were the goal getters for Jamshedpur.
The match started late due to torrential rain but didn’t dampen Jamshedpur FC's spirits as they got their noses in front after just three minutes through Chima Chukwu. The Red Miners established a two-goal cushion seven minutes later.
This time it was Boris Singh who managed to get on the end of it for a tap-in at the far post. Odisha FC reduced their deficit seven minutes later. Raynier Fernandes rolled the ball towards Diego Mauricio near the edge of the box.
The Brazilian was given too much space before he curled and tucked his effort inside the far post. With two minutes to go in the regulation time, Odisha FC restored parity when substitutes Isak Vanlalruatfela and Isaac Chhakchhuak combined brilliantly on the right flank for the latter to slot home.
Vanlalruatfela was once again in action in the stoppage time as the 21-year-old picked out Mauricio with an inch-perfect ball before the striker fired in his second of the night and the winning goal for Odisha FC.
