Guwahati, Aug. 22: Dynamo Club held Green Valley Sports Club to a goalless draw in their match of the RG Baruah Guwahati Sports Association Super Division Football League at the first turf of the Nehru Stadium here today.
Green Valley players, who were riding high on confidence with three consecutive wins, failed to capitalise on their chances. Dynamo players hardly made any inroads into the Green Valley territory in the first half.
Green Valley’s Nigerian recruit George Prince, having received a measured pass from Michael Lucky Kelechukwu on the right flank, failed to find the net in the 12th minute. Prince’s strike from close range was well saved by Dynamo glovesman Basta Marandi.
Basta went on to deny Green Valley a genuine lead in the 21st minute. Kelechukwu’s strike from inside the box was magnificently saved.
The remaining minutes of the game witnessed a few tussles and attempts on target but both the sides failed to find the back of the net.
