Bhubaneswar, May 26 (IANS) Kickstart FC secured third place in the Hero Indian Women's League after registering a narrow 1-0 win against Indian Arrows at the Capital Ground here on Thursday.

After the breather, Arrows created a couple of chances but failed to earn the equalizer. The AIFF developmental side got their best chance at the edge of the hour mark when Apurna made a good run defying the Kickstart defense but failed to hit the target.
Arrows got another chance in the dying minutes when Priyanka missed finding the net from a long ranger in the 82nd minute.
With this win, the Karnataka-based side ended their HIWL 2022 campaign third in the league table with 27 points from 11 matches. Indian Arrows on the other hand ended fifth this season.
