I-League 2nd Division 2018: Delhi Dynamos reserves and Kerala Blasters reserves register wins
Delhi Dynamos reserves, Kerala Blasters Football Club reserves and Hindustan FC scripted victories in their respective 2nd division I-League matches on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Ozone FC Bengaluru played out a goalless draw against FC Goa reserves and Jamshedpur FC reserves also split points with Tiddim Road United Football Club with a score line of 1-1.
Riswanali Edakkavil opened the scoring for Kerala Basters Football Club in the 13th minute, while Ananthu Murali doubled the lead in the 57th minute. Fateh Hyderabad’s Edmond Peprah pulled one back for the visitors but Suraj Rawat’s 71st-minute strike took the game away from them. Lepcha scored in the 82nd minute to make it 2-3, but it was too late!
A lone strike in the 30th minute from Seiminmang Manchong against Lonestar Kashmir Football Club earned Delhi Dynamos FC full points in a crucial away tie.
Hindustan Football Club stormed into the game and scored goals at regular intervals. Delhi United Football Club was nowhere in the first half, conceding three goals in the 12th, 14th and 32nd minute respectively. Rungsing Muinao’s strike on the stroke of half-time gave the visitors a sigh of relief.
L.Shimray’s 53rd-minute strike made it 4-1 for Hindustan Football Club. Sunny Varun Thakur made it 4-2, but it hardly changed the fate of the match. Ozone FC Bengaluru will be disappointed to miss out an opportunity to register full points at home against FC Goa in a match which saw no goals.
In another fixture, Jamshedpur FC failed to hold on to their lead and shared a point each with Tiddim Road United Football Club. Gourav Mukhi’s 12th-minute strike was cancelled out by Tiddim Road United’s Vashum in the 43rd minute at the JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur.
Real Kashmir Football Club will be in action on Wednesday when they will sweat it out against FC Pune City reserves while FC Kerala will take on Madhya Bharat Sports Club on the same day.
