Tezpur, Aug. 6: Oil India FC, Duliajan, today clinched a 3-1 victory against Barhungkha Club, Kokrajhar, to march into the semi-final of the 54th Sohanlal Dugar Shield football tournament at Polo Ground here today.

In a keenly contested affair, striker Zaidin Mawia fashioned the lead for Oil India with an 18th minute goal. He scored with a solo effort.

Midfielder Manash Manjit Chetia further consolidated the lead with a brace in the 37th and 44th minutes to help the side lead 3-0 at the breather. Chetia ruffled the net first off a flick from Mintu Boro and then capitalised on a defensive lapse on part of the Kokrajhar opponents for the second.

The second half saw the Barhungkha men raiding the Oil India territory at quick intervals and the latter making all efforts to secure their castle. Their efforts finally yielded result in the 75th minute when Kishore Chetry managed to beat the Oil India defence with his brilliant dribbling skill to catch custodian Nitesh Murthy off guard.

Assam Rifles, Shillong, will play Dimapur XI in the first semi-final match tomorrow.
