A BDFA Super Division football match between Rail Wheel Factory (RWF) and MEG ended in a 1-1 draw here at the Football Stadium on Wednesday.
A cross from the right flank from Jiten found Nguerilal, who scored to give MEG the lead just before half-time.
Minutes after the interval, RWF struck through Deepu, and a point was split between the teams with no further goals in the match.
Other result: ‘A’ division: AGORC 2 (Muralidharan, Lokmon Singh) bt Bangalore Mars 1 (Stalin).
Three changes in squad
Karnataka has made three changes in its Ranji Trophy squad to face Vidarbha at Mysore from Saturday.
The trio of K. Gowtham, Ronit More and Karun Nair — part of the State under-25 team that lost to Saurashtra in the semifinals of the C.K. Nayudu Trophy on Wednesday — will take the places of S.L. Akshay, S.K. Moinuddin and K.B. Pawan. None of the latter three featured in the victory over Delhi here earlier this week and Karnataka, led by R. Vinay Kumar, will likely field an unchanged eleven.
The squad: R. Vinay Kumar (Capt.), Robin Uthappa, K.L. Rahul, Kunal Kapoor, Ganesh Satish, Manish Pandey, Stuart Binny, C.M. Gautham, A. Mithun, K.P. Appanna, H.S. Sharath, Amit Verma, K. Gowtham, Ronit More, Karun Nair.
Four goals from Thiru led Dynamites United HC to a 6-0 rout of Royal HC in the State ‘C’ division hockey league here.
The result: Dynamites United HC 6 (Thiru 13, 15, 30, 45, Kalappa 19, Deepak 35) bt Royal HC 0.
