It was all Aizawl in the second half as Lajong rarely looked like scoring. Kingsley brought down Kinowaki and his penalty allowed Lajong a possible route back into the game late on but it wasn't to be as the hosts held on. After sduccessive home wins Aizawl go top of the table for a few hours at least. Three defeats on the bounce and it could be a long season for a young Lajong outfit, who lack penetration going forward and seem unable to sustain a level of performance over the 90 minutes.
