Shillong, Jul 23: Imson won their second consecutive match in the First Division here today by edging out Sohryngkham 1-0.
After a goalless first half, Oversharp Iawphniaw (formerly of Wahingdoh last season) scored the only goal of the game in the 51st minute.
Sohryngkham largely played well today but none of their players could get close enough to scoring for the club, which had been promoted from the Second Division after finishing second in that competition last year.
This is Imson’s second win, after being Mawlai 2-0 in the opener last week, and is also Sohryngkham’s second loss – they were beaten by Nongrim Hills 3-1 in their first outing.
Tomorrow Nongrim take on Mawlai at 4PM.
Today’s Third Division results:
Umpling 2 – 0 Mawpat (Group B)
Mawshbuit 1 – 1 Mawkriah West (Group B)
