Shillong, Feb 19: Ronald Lyngdoh Nonglait and Belton Lartang scored in Meghalaya’s 2-1 win over Tripura in today’s U-21 Dr T Ao Football Tournament Pool B game in Guwahati.
Meghalaya had chances right from the beginning and they were awarded a penalty in the 10th minute when Chanmitre Thma was bundled over in the box. Nonglait stepped up to convert the spot kick.
Ten minutes later and Lartang scored via an assist by Kitbok Khyriem.
Meghalaya had more opportunities in the second half but they couldn’t convert any of these and it was Tripura who clawed a goal back after winning a penalty of their own after a handball in the box.
