Silchar beat Tarapur

Hailakandi, June 9: Silchar Sporting Club today handed a 3-1 defeat to Tarapur Athletic Club in a first-round match of Silchar Super Division Football League organised by the district sports association at Satindra Mohan Dev Stadium in Silchar.

The winners gained the upper hand as early as in the fifth minute when Nigerian recruit Sunday Wager Aiyuk made no mistake in converting a sitter off a pass by Ringson Hmar inside the penalty box.

Hmar doubled the lead with another goal in the 23rd minute by placing a Shabir Ali pass rightly into the Tarapur net. Lalremliana reduced the margin for Tarapur with a 29th minute goal with his solo effort.

Trailing by a goal, Tarapur men started the second half aggressively but could not maintain the tempo as the opponents started countering the attacks with quick counter- attacks.

Tarapur conceded the third goal when they tried to bounce back in the match towards the fag end.

Aiyuk took the opportunity to make a quick raid back into their castle with solo effort from the midfield onwards to ruffle the net for his second score in the 86th minute.

Tomorrow, Arunachal Sangskritik Sangha will play against India Club.
