Shillong, Nov 24: Ri-Bhoi United FC defeated NACO Imphal 2-1 in their Invitation Knock Out Football Tournament 2022-23 match at New Nongstoin yesterday.
NACO Imphal took the lead in the fourth minute and held on to the half time whistle leading 1-0.
However, RBUFC started the second half in fine form and found an equaliser through Restom Khriam in the 48th minute via a free-kick.
The Ri-Bhoi team then found the lead on the hour mark through Robert Khongjoh and carried the victory.
The next match will be held on 1st December between Shillong Lajong and Niaw Wasa at 1:30PM.
Lajong’s opponents were originally scheduled to be Gauhati Town Club. However, it would be impossible to imagine an Assam-based club taking part so soon after the Mukroh Massacre, which occurred on Tuesday.
