Policemen claim top title

Sivasagar/Guwahati, March 17: Assam Police Blues annexed the sixth Assam State Premier League football tournament, edging past Green Valley SC 6-5 via tie-breakers in the all-Guwahati final at Piyoli Phukan Stadium here on Saturday.

The final witnessed a 1-1 draw in the regulation 90 minutes.
