Hailakandi, June 12: Public Health Engineering Recreational Club (PHE RC) blanked Police Athletic Club 2-0 in a league encounter of the District Sports Association, Silchar Super Division football league, at Satindra Mohan Dev Stadium in Silchar today.
In a rather one-sided affair, the PHE team opened its account with a 38th-minute penalty kick conversion by P.C. Joshan Jwala. The spot kick was awarded for Bikram Gogoi of Police AC handling the ball inside the box.
Kenny Rongmei consolidated the lead in the 73rd minute with solo efforts from the midfield onwards to dribble and dodge past the police defence and ruffle the net from inside the opponent’s box.
PHE custodian Liton Banik made some brilliant saves to deny any breakthrough to the policemen. On the other hand, the police defence, which gave way on a few occasions, managed to outsmart the PHE strike force on a number of occasions during the match. Tarapur Athletic Club will meet India Club in a match tomorrow.
