National Games: Odisha in final

Defending champion Odisha entered the final with a 3-0 win over Haryana in the women’s semifinals of the football competition of the 35th National Games at the Corporation Stadium here on Sunday.

“It was tough all the way,” said a relieved Odisha coach Sradhanjali Samanta Ray. “We expected more goals but got only three. Our strikers failed to coordinate for once,” she said.

The results (semifinals): Odisha 3 (Lochanamunda 6, Menaka Malik 71 & 74) bt Haryana 0; Manipur 3 (N.G. Bala Devi 8 & 9, I. Parameshwari Devi 50) bt Kerala 0.
