U-16 national team wins Under-16 Club championship


In the finals played yesterday at Changlimithang National Stadium, they defeated the defending champion Druk Star FC by 3 goals to 1.

The national team netted an initiation goal within the first 20 minutes of the game. Another followed in the second half giving the team a comfortable lead. But Druk Star FC made a comeback and narrowed down the goal deficit to just one. Unfortunately, it was short-lived as the Under-16 national team sealed the game with its third goal. The winners took home a cash prize of Nu 20,000 while the runners-up claimed Nu 10,000. Yesterday’s game was the second meeting between the two teams in the finals of the championship. Last year, Druk Star FC defeated the Under-16 national team. Nine clubs participated in the tournament organised by the Bhutan Football Federation annually.
