Shillong, Jul 4: A spate of goals saw Mawlai SC pump 14 past Synroplang 77 in their Group B fixture of the Shillong Sports Association’s Women’s League at Third Ground, Polo, here today.
The later match then saw Lumparing SC battle past Maw U-tieng SC for a hard-fought but welcome 2-0 win, also in Group B.
Both Mawlai and Lumparing now have three wins in three games, with the former ahead in the points table thanks to a better goal difference (+25 to +17).
Maw U-tieng, playing their second match of the competition, were looking for a second win but, despite their best efforts, were denied. They held off Lumparing until the very end of the first half, until Chibasal Sangma (35’+1) broke the deadlock by getting the ball past the goalkeeper. Earlier Sidaris Khongwet had a goal disallowed for offside.
The second half saw more of the same, though Maw U-tieng were unable to get close to scoring. Sangma (49′) again scored after intense pressure on the opposition citadel and Lumparing were able to bag a full 3 points.
In the earlier contest, defending champions Mawlai celebrated a 14-0 victory, with hat-tricks for Baiarkynti Mylliemngap (3′, 18′, 54′), Makrisha Songthiang (34′, 39′, 61′, 63′) and Charlinda Nongtdu (58′, 67′, 70’+1). The other goals were scored by Cynthia Mylliemumlong (24′, 26′) Dakini Shylla (35′) and Marbarin Nongrum (70’+2).
Tomorrow, in Group B, Kharang SC will face Iasnohktilang FC at 2:30PM, followed by Umpling SC against Mawkriah West SC in Group A at 4:15PM.
