In the 16th minute, DHU went all out in attack. Their defending midfielder No.16 You Dandan dribbled the ball with her skills into the box, and then shot into the corner of the net, breaking the deadlock for her team. On the other end, NTNU couldn't form any effective attack in near 30 minutes, and could hardly pass the ball into DHU's half. At half time, DHU 1, NTNU 0.

According to the reporter in the stadium, NTNU paid more attention to DHU's attacks from both flanks, and launched several counter attacks from time to time, but still couldn't score. They sent the ball into the net in the 66th minute, but this goal was canceled due to offside. In the remaining time of the match, both sides couldn't change the score.
