Chhinga Veng brush off Mizoram Police, Aizawl trounce Ramhlun North
Written by: Mizoram Police FC
The defending champions are currently unbeaten in the tournament.
Two late goals from MS Dawngliana sealed all three points for Chhinga Veng FC as they got back into winning ways after being held by Aizawl FC in the previous round.
Chhinga Veng FC edged out their opponents in a back and forth first half as they enjoyed the better chances. MS Dawngliana finished wide after being put through while Lalrammawia and Lalromawia proved to be a handful for the Police defence.
Mizoram Police FC threatened the champions through seasoned campaigners Lalbiakhlua and F. Lalrinpuia in an open attacking affair.
The second period saw more of the same from both teams as they searched for what could well be the winning goal in an even match up.
Chhinga Veng FC broke the deadlock late on with MS Dawngliana finishing off a ball from Sawmzela. One goal seemed enough with five minutes to go but there was still time for a second when Dawngtea scored again after goalkeeper Zothanmawia'n long ball was not properly dealt with by the Police defence
First half goals from F. Lalremsanga and Rochharzela ensured victory for the Reds as they look to climb the MPL table after a stop-start beginning.
Aizawl FC were the better team in the first half with Paul Ramfangzauva playing an important role in the first goal as he provided a precise ball for Lalremsanga.
Ramhlun North FC had chances to hit back through Lalliansanga and Lalmawizuala but it was Aizawl FC who struck again minutes before halftime with livewire attacker Rochharzela driving in and finding the net.
Laldingngheta and Vanlallawma missed two very good opportunities for Ramhlun North FC in the second half but Aizawl FC stood firm till the final whistle to earn much needed three points.
