At the Sheikh Saad Al Abdullah Al Salim Al Sabah Covered Halls Complex in the Sabah Al Salem city in Kuwait, Khaleej Club earned a slender lead in the first half (14-13) before Al Arabi fought back and leveled at 27 when the referee blew the full-time whistle. At the end of the first extra time, the scores read 30-all.
