Shillong, Dec 21: There were some massive victories for teams across Groups A, C and D in the Meghalaya State League on Thursday, with the big news being that Malki suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat at the hands of Tynrongmawsaw in Mairang.
The Group C match saw goals scored by Silvestar Thongni (2nd minute), Jovian Lyngdoh Marshillong (16th), Wiles Lygkhoi (47th, 85th) and one own goal by a Malki player to put Tynrongmawsaw at the top of the group with six points.
