Shillong, Sep 5: Meghalaya’s girls defeated Assam 3-1 to go to the top of Group C in the Sub-Junior National Football Championship today.

However, Meghalaya were able to restore parity right at the tail-end of the first half with Larihun Songthiang (45’+3) finding the equaliser.
Player of the Match Bonifilia Shullai then gave Meghalaya the lead in the 57th minute before Songthiang put the result beyond doubt with a second goal in the 70th minute.
Having won their first match against Gujarat, Meghalaya now have 6 points with a game to go against bottom side Chhattisgarh on Thursday.
