Dugar shield

Tezpur, Aug. 7: Assam Rifles, Shillong, today tamed Dimapur XI 5-0 in the first semi-final to storm into the final of the 54th Sohanlal Dugar Shield football tournament at Polo Ground here.

Striker M. Kamei put his side in the lead with the help of forward Akum Ao as early as the third minute.

Conceding an early lead, the Dimapur side tried to stage a comeback with concerted efforts.
