Netting 3 goals, DRUK LHAYUL FC had their last laugh right from the first half today against the determined TENSUNG FC at Changlingmithang.
Starting on the front foot against the men in green, DRUK LHAYUL FC almost got themselves an early lead when Kezang Wangdi gave an amazing cross at 4 minutes on the clock but Striker Dorji made a disheartening miss. The chances came to TENSUNG FC like the ones when their asset striker Ngawang Tobgay volleyed a powerful blast but the opponent’s defender Tshering Samdrup cleared off.
DRUK LHAYUL FC went ahead with the goal from Jigme Tshultrim at 29 minutes when he shot through the space to find the net. Forward Kelzang Penjor doubled the lead at 40 minutes with an awesome assist from Dorji and the duo set up yet again to make the score 3 just 3 minutes later when Dorji slotted a stunning spinning goal.
The goalless second half saw the losing team in an intense rage of comeback but failing to convert the chain of chances, had to settle for the 3 to nothing loss against the Thimphu District League 2021 champion by the game time. Nevertheless, they notched up their defense game not conceding even a goal.
For the next match, we will have RINPUNG FC going against HIGH QUALITY UNITED FC at Woochu Sports Arena on 6th July.
