Shillong, May 21: Lawei booked the last remaining spot in the semifinals of the Shillong Sports Association’s Women’s League with a 2-0 win over Nongkohlew in Group B at Third Ground, Polo, here today.
As a result, Lawei went to the top of the group and dropped Maw-U-Tieng into second place. Maw-U-Tieng had already secured their place in the knockouts earlier in the week.
