Shillong, Jun 21: Ryntih and Mawkhar claimed victory in their respective U-18 Shillong Premier League matches here today.
At the JN Stadium Ryntih defeated bottom side Lawsohtun 2-1, while Mawkhar were 3-0 winners over Marbisu at Third Ground.
Lamphrang Pyngrope (pictured centre) scored for Ryntih in the third and 32nd minutes, on either side of the sending off of Lawsohtun’s first choice goalkeeper.
