Oil India dampen Dynamo

Dibrugarh, July 28: Oil India Football Club, Duliajan, defeated Dynamo Club, Guwahati, by 2-0 goals in a match of sixth Bodousa Cup Football tournament, organised by Bodousa Sports club, at Katchujan in Tinsukia district.

With this win in the knock-out stage, Oil India FC sealed their place in the round of four. For Dynamo, the result meant that they are out of the tournament.

The match was evenly fought with both teams creating chances in the opening minutes. But it was OIL striker Manash Manjit Chetia who opened the account in 39th minute through a wonderful pass from midfielder Mintu Boro.

Thereafter, the Dynamo players toiled hard for drawing parity before the lemon break, but in vain.

The second half saw the OIL players taking no chances as they kept up the offensive. In the 51st minute, midfielder Zaidin Hmar scored the second goal through a pass from striker Manash Manjit Chetia.

Down 0-2, Dynamo created a few openings but as luck would have it, they failed to reduce the margin.

Tomorrow, FC Zalen, Manipur, will play against Jagaran Sangha, Calcutta.


Pranay Bordoloi from Guwahati has been nominated as the only non-official member of National Selection Committee for Tenzing Norgay National Adventure Award by Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports.
