Ten men Kanchanjunga FC secured a narrow 1-0 win over Share FC
In the fifth day clash of the Desun Siliguri Premier League, Kanchanjuga FC hosted Share FC at Milan More Ground wherein the host secured a narrow 1-0 win on Thursday evening.
Both the sides kicked off in a clumsy manner with no clear intention and each side rolled the ball at midfield area and struggling to create a move.
However, it was the visiting side, Share FC, who enjoyed ball possession most of the first half. First real shot on target came in the 12th minute from Share FC when Sarad Gurung tried to place the shot at the far post and miss it nearly. Gurung almost gave the lead to share FC in the 32nd minute when his shot from the edge of the box missed the post by a whisker.
Five minutes before the break Sarad Gurung´s brilliant free kick was wonderfully saved by Kanchanjunga FC custodian Nantu Majumdar.
At the beginning of second half, Kanchanjunga was reduced to 10 men with Raj Subba receiving the marching order when he received his second yellow of the match.
However, Siliguri Rhinos did well to keep Share FC at bay with their moves and took the lead post an hour mark through Sandeep Subba who went on to receive a left wing cross before placing it at the far corner of the net.
The goal boosted Kanchanjunga FC´s moral and they started searching for the second goal. On the other hand Share FC failed to keep up with their momentum.
Today´s win gives Kanchanjunga FC their first three points in the Siliguri Premier League.
