Chyasal knock out MMC
Feb 22, 2019-
Chyasal Youth Club stunned Martyrs Memorial ‘A’ Division League Champions Manang Marshyangdi Club 1-0 to enter the semi-finals of the 21st Tilottama Gold Cup football tournament on Thursday.At the ANFA Academy ground, Armand Moyen’s early second half goal was enough for Chyasal to get the better of top tier giants. MMC were yet to find their feet in the game when Moyen made full use of a cross from Hemanta Thapa Magar to slam home from the area.
With the only goal making the difference, both teams created several goal scoring opportunities but failed to convert. MMC exert pressure to bring back the equaliser but Chyasal managed to stay firm. MMC coach Suman Shrestha said not having key players cost them the game.
His Chyasal counterpart Raju Kaji Shakya said his side was lucky to scrape out victory. “MCC were very threatening and played an excellent attacking game. The boys did well to keep ball in their possession and this helped us in keeping their attacks at bay. We were lucky that few of their chances lacked finishing,” said Shrestha.
