Share FC managed to secure a narrow 1-0 win over tournament favorites Royal FC in the 10th match day of the ongoing Desun Siliguri Premier League, played on Tuesday evening at Ila Pal School Ground.
Both the teams had a slow start with either side losing ball possession quite often. It was, however, the hosts Share FC that secured the lead in the 13th minute through Samrat Chowdhary who took advantage of a free kick deflection off the keeper and managed to send the ball home.
After conceding an early goal Royal FC came together and fought back hard, enjoying more possession over the ball and started building their moves towards Share´s territory. However, Siliguri Lions lacked a proper finishing that could have brought them back into the game.
The second half proceeding was no different. Royal FC enjoyed ball possession and kept building pressure on Share FC but each time failed to find their target.
Share FC took on a more defensive approach in the second half and managed to hold on to their lead till the end to secure the needed win.
Today´s win helped Share FC climb up to second place in Group B standings with 6 points from 3 outings while Royal FC continues to enjoy the top position with an equal number of games.
