India took charge early in the second quarter and were rewarded for their efforts when they won their second PC. However, the defense of the United States persisted and prevented India from converting it.

After that, USA launched a counter-attack, resulting in their first penalty corner of the game, but to no avail, forcing both teams to enter the half-time break for no advantage.
