The first goal of the match was scored by Al-Wahda’s Majed al-Hajj at the 56 minutes mark, and Al-Shorta’s Wasim Borashi responded quickly and scored the equalizer, but Al-Wahda’s Abdelqader Dakkeh managed to score the winning goal at the 87 minutes mark, depriving Al-Shorta from winning the Championship and dropping their ranking to third place, as both Al-Shorta and Al-Wahda tied with 11 points at the end of the match, but Al-Wahda earned second place due to the results of their head-to-head matches, leaving Al-Shorta at third place.
