As the stipulated time saw a tie, the match rolled for 30-minute extra time.
There, Bashundhara boys scored one in the 105th minute. Miguel took a corner shot that Mohammedan custodian Sujon failed to keep on grip and utilising the opportunity, substitute midfielder Jahid Hossain placed the ball nicely.
