Written by: Mizoram Football Association
The second day of the fourth round saw a goals' galore in the final game.
The champions enjoyed the better chances that came along in an even match up but lady luck was not on their side in the last fixture of round 4.
Lalromawia tested Aizawl FC Gurpreet Singh twice in the first half through a freekick and a close range effort, while Lalmuansanga also came close for CVFC.
Former CVFC striker Lalkhawpuimawia also proved to be a handful at set pieces in the other end for Aizawl FC.
Chhinga Veng FC applied more pressure in the second half but it could not result in a goal with the trio of Lalrammawia, Lalromawia and Lalrinchhana failing to create anything more than half-chances.
Isak Vanlalruatfela was a bright spark for Aizawl FC but it was clear the I-League club were the subdued team as they struggled to break down CVFC backline.
CVFC's Lalrammawia nudged the ball into the net late on in a goal mouth scramble but the referee had to rule it out because of a foul on the goalkeeper Gurpreet.
Unbeaten Chhinga Veng FC with 10 points from fire matches will now face Mizoram Police FC on Friday afternoon while Aizawl FC will be entertained by Ramhlun North FC in the evening.
The Police team shifted focus after having unwanted attention on their backline because of recent results as their frontline put up a vibrant attacking display.
Lalrinpuia and Lalbiakhlua struck in the space of 6 minutes after Lalfakawma came very close to opening the score early on.
Ramhlun North FC Waheed Adekunle responded with an effort that hit the crossbar while Jessy Vanlalmuana almost made the Police defence pay for their lapse in concentration.
Mizoram Police struck early again in the second half through F. Lalrinpuia before adding the next two through Lalramtharmawia and Lalfakzuala in clinical fashion.
Ramhluun North FC did pull one back through forward Waheed late on but that only proved to be a consolation as Mizoram Police FC romped to a deserved victory.
