Mizoram Police romp into semis, Aizawl win in MPL
Written by: Mizoram Premier League
Here's part 2 of all the action from Round 13.
A 6-1 rout of bottom strugglers Dinthar FC ensured the Police, who were bottom of the table with one point after round 5, will go into the last 4 of MPL6.
The result means Dinthar FC still find themselves in the relegation playoff spot with a victory in the last round of MPL6.
Lalrinpuia opened the scoring for Mizoram Police FC in the 4th minute finishing off some brilliant work from Lalfakzuala. Dinthar FC equalised in the 15th minute with Samuel Laltlanthanga netting a brilliant freekick.
Mizoram Police FC managed to score three in the space of four minutes right before halftime as Lalfakzuala scored on the 42nd and 45th minute and F. Lalrinpuia grabbed his second in stoppage time. MPFC were rampant at the start of the second half as Lalfakzuala grabbed his hattrick and Lalbiakhlua scored their sixth in the 54th minute.
Ramliana, Lalthantluanga and Saihmingthanga all had opportunities for Dinthar FC but the first ever MPL champions were ultimately outclassed for 90 minutes.
Aizawl ease to win against Chanmari West
I-League champions Aizawl FC closed out round 13 of the Mizoram Premier League 6 with a routine victory over Chanmari West FC at AR Lammual.
A first half goal from Masih Saighani and a late strike from William Lalnunfela were enough to ensure victory for Aizawl FC who have already sealed the semi-final spot.
Chanmari West FC put in a disciplined shift in the match and came close to finding the net on a couple of occasions but were ultimately beaten by a team with better individual quality.
The result sees them still in the relegation playoff spot with 11 points from 13 games, three points above bottom team Dinthar FC. They only need a point in the final round to ensure their safety from relegation and secure a relegation playoff spot.
Should they fail to earn a point and Dinthar FC come out on top against Chanmari FC in round 14, they will be relegated with Dinthar moving above them as Dinthar FC had already beaten them in round 8 while the two teams settled for a draw in round 5.
