The deadlock was broken in the 18th minute when Alfred found the back of the net with a neat finish.

The goalscorer also showed a fair amount of composure in the box in the 34th minute as he set up Brandon Vanlalremdika, although the shot was saved by Subrata Paul who once again denied the left winger in a span of 10 minutes.

The Shivajians goalkeeper however had no answer to an unstoppable piledriver of a volley by Kinowaki off David Lalrinmuana's corner kick to send Aizawl into the break with a 2-0 lead.

After two defeats, Aizawl now have three points to help get off from the bottom of the table to occupy the fourth spot after their win. As for Shivajians, they are yet to score a goal but have the one point from their last game in the two encounters they have had in the I-League so far.
