ROYAL FC REGISTERED THEIR SECOND WIN IN SILIGURI PREMIER LEAGUE
Royal FC secured a narrow 1-0 win over UKFC in the 6th day of Desun Siliguri Premier League played at Milan More Ground on Friday afternoon.
Both sides started off with an attacking game plan with UKFC getting their first shot on target in the very second minute of the game when Iswar Rai received a rebound outside the box and went for a first timer to test Royal custodian Subham Deb Biswas who fumbles but manages to collect the ball in his second attempt.
Three minutes later it was Royal FC´s Karan Rai who went for the Glory from 20 yards that was well collected by UKFC keeper Raju aka Kalis.
After the first quarter, the pace of the game reduced and both sides remained confined in the midfield area most of the time. However, towards the end of the first session, some momentum was brought into the game by both the teams with no effective result.
The second half looked promising for UKFC as they earned an early free-kick from around 25-yard area. Lakpa Tamang, however, fired the ball into the orbit.
In the 67th minute, Royal FC ended the deadlock through substitute Sameer Tamang who positioned himself well just in front of the goal off Timo´s header and slams it into the net.
UKFC fought back for the equalizer till the end but failed to find as Royal FC´s backline stood tough as a wall.
Today´s win gives Royal FC full three-point and stays at the top of Group B table with 6 points from 2 games while UKFC are yet to register a win.
