ASEB edge past policemen 5-3

Guwahati, July 11: Assam State Electricity Board (ASEB) Sports Club registered a 5-3 victory via tie-breaker against Assam Police Blues to proceed to the quarter-finals of the Premier Agro Bio-Tech 10th N.N. Bhattacharya Knockout Football Tournament at Nehru Stadium here today.

Despite failing to produce a goal in the regular 90 minutes, the powermen held their nerve to pull off a scintillating 5-3 victory over the policemen in the tie-breaker. ASEB converted all their set pieces, although captain Karuna Goyari’s failure to find the back of the net let them down.

Nitu Narzary, Sanjay Boro, Biplob Kundu, Ransang Liana and William Gangte converted their respective penalties while Kusha Rabha, Kajaigek Rongmei and N. Bikash Singh found the back of the net. Karuna Goyari who took the first penalty was the lone player to miss for the policemen.
