SDN 085 Ciumbuleuit emerged as champions after defeating SDN 075 Jatayu in the age category (KU) 10. Meanwhile, in KU 12, SDN 043 Cimuncang C looked strong and managed to reduce the resistance of SDN 036 Ujungberung.

Syahdan, through a counter-attack, opened SDN 085 Ciumbule from a 1-0 lead, which was recorded by Naya Aisha Kirana. The central figure as organizer of the attack stimulated the enthusiasm of his teammates after scoring a goal by unleashing a horizontal kick into the corner of the goal that the SDN 075 Jatayu goalkeeper could not parry. Apparently the goal was scored again before half-time by the vassal of SDN 085 Ciumbuleuit. This time it was Nadhiva Shula, KU 10's top scorer in the MilkLife Soccer Challenge – Bandung Series 1, who put his name on the scoreboard after taking advantage of the chaos at the goal mouth.

In the second half, SDN 075 Jatayu tried to recover by playing more aggressively. Open play and mutual attacks were again inevitable and the hard efforts of the students led by Irpan Nur Alanurin Anwar paid off through a goal by Arsifa Kayla Putri. Unfortunately, the score of 2-1 only changed when the final whistle sounded and SDN 085 Ciumbuleuit captured the championship title.

The goalscorer and captain of the SDN 085 Ciumbuleuit team, Naya Aisha Kirana, said she had 'stage fright' before setting foot in the final. “At first I was nervous before playing because this was my first final match. But he started to enjoy playing because he was encouraged by supporters and coaches.

Instead of being pressured by the actions of the opponent's '12th player', SDN 043 Cimuncang C rushed to dominate the match from the start. The waves of attacks launched by the SDN 043 Cimuncang C holder eventually forced the players of SDN 036 Ujungberung to struggle on the defensive line.

It didn't take long for these conditions to allow SDN 043 Cimuncang C to break through the opponent's defense and score a goal through the feet of Sandrina Rachelia Suprapto. This goal also ensured that Sandrina won the title of Top Scorer with a score of 22 goals during the competition in Bandung.

After a 1-0 win, it didn't take long before SDN 043 Cimuncang C doubled their lead to 2-0. From a fight for the ball outside the penalty area, Hilda Rizki Shaffira kicked the ball wildly towards the goal and could not anticipate the goalkeeper of SDN 036 Ujungberung, Fitriana.

SDN 036 Ujungberung did not give up even though they were two goals behind and played more aggressively after the restart. After several chances in the opponent's area were not taken, the goal was eventually created as an own goal due to an opponent's blunder in heading the ball in the defensive area. Although they started to gain confidence and seemed to be under pressure, the scoreline of 2-1 for SDN 043 Cimuncang C's victory unfortunately only changed at the end.
