The Thimphu district league 2021 winner, DRUK LHAYUL FC claims their 3 crucial points finding the net in the dying minutes of the game. Jigme Tshultrim is the hero for the day, scoring the lone winning stunner during the additional time against the team in the top 3 TRANSPORT UNITED FC today at Changlingmithang.
Since the first whistle the game swung of the side of newbie DRUK LHAYUL FC as they threatened the seemingly strong team TRANSPORT UNITED FC with one attack after another. Nevertheless TUF kept the guards up not letting in any shots. Both the teams shared the rage of going ahead which had them go hazy and the TRANSPORT defense Kinley Tshering had to go out of the game with a serious injury at 33 minutes on the clock.
The teams had their mind on not conceding any goal as the duo had the best goalies in the country guarding their post against their opponent. “Had my players not made the last minute blunder, we could have ended the match in a draw” said the boss Ngawang Jampel of TRANSPORT UNITED FC. However, being the icebreaker of today’s match, DLFC midfielder Jigme Tshultrim took advantage of the simple yet lethal mistake of TUFC defense to slide in the lone goal at 93 minutes ending the tedious run for lead in 0-1 by the full time.
“I would like to thank my defense line and being awarded the man of the match today is a reward from my team to me as I couldn’t have done it without their collective effort” said Tshering Dhendup of DRUK LHAYUL who is the first goalie to win the title until now.
For the last match of BPL 2021 Round 1, we will have GELEPHU FC vs TENSUNG FC on 27th July at Changlingmithang.
