Hailakandi, July 4: Arunachal Sanskritik Sanstha edged past Public Health Engineering Recreation Club 2-1 in the Ramanuj Gupta Memorial Super Division Football League of District Sports Association (DSA) at Satindra Mohan Dev stadium in Silchar today.

Arunachal took the lead in the second minute with Vanlalria making no mistake outplaying the PHE RC goalkeeper.

Jolted by the early goal, PHE tried to make amends but could not convert till the 41st minute when striker Kenny Rongmei brought up the equaliser.

No more goals were scored till half time.

With both teams at 1-1, the second half was evenly contested.

However, Arunachal made a breakthrough, with Lalthan Kima scoring in the 54th minute.

PHE tried to conjure up a repeat but failed to penetrate the formidable Arunachal defence.

Silchar Sporting is now leading the table with seven wins in the league.

Along with Silchar, three other teams, Tarapur Athletic Club, Arunachal Sanskritik Sanstha and PHE RC have confirmed their place in the super four stages.

There are only three matches left in the ongoing league and the super-four league will start after July 10, sources said.

Arunachal SS will take on Police AC on Sunday, Tarapur AC will clash with PHE RC on July 8 and Town Club will play with India Club on July 10.
