Khongsai strikes MEG’s winner

A first-half goal from Lethaolen Khongsai took MEG & Centre FC to a 1-0 win over Student Union in the BDFA Super Division football league, at Bangalore Football Stadium here on Thursday.

Khongsai latched on to a long ball and headed it home in the 28th minute, but collided with the advancing Student Union FC goalkeeper Francis Vincent in the process. A winded Khongsai left the field, returning to action a few minutes later.

Student Union had a great chance to draw level in the second half, when Pravruth’s header left MEG custodian Sarath Narayanan stranded. The ball, however, struck the side post and bounced out.

MEG’s Shubam Rana then missed an easy chance, but his side managed to hold on and gain three points. MEG recorded a second win in as many matches, while Student Union is yet to taste victory in three outings.

The results: Super Division: MEG & Centre FC 1 (Lethaolen Khongsai 28) bt Student Union FC 0.

A-Division: FC Deccan 2 (Antony Dizo 49, K.D. Arvind 60) bt BUFC 0; Parikrma FC 0 drew with BTM FC 0.
