Riding on the momentum, Monika Tirkey (26) netted the second for Maharashtra through another penalty corner before skipper Ashwini Kolekar (50) scored the winner through a clinical field goal.

Mizoram did create a few chances including a couple of penalty corners, but failed to make the most. Their struggle to maintain possession also did not allow them to threaten the Maharashtra defence.
