Imphal, July 12, 2022:I Prameshwori and Y Kiranbala scored hat tricks to guide Manipur Sangais to a 10-0 demolition of the Assam Rhinos in the ongoing North East Women’s 1st League at SAI Ground, Takyel.
Manipur Sangais, who were held to an uninspiring goalless draw with Sikkim Pandas in the previous match, fired all the guns from the start to take a comfortable 7-0 first-half lead before finishing the rout 10-0.
I Prameshwori opened the floodgates early in the 5th minute before adding two minutes later to double the advantage.
Y Kiranbala continued the onslaught adding the team’s third in the 13th minute before I Premeshwori rose again to complete his hat-trick in the 16th minute.
The goalscoring spree continued with N Priyanka and S Rinaroy scoring a goal each in the 20th and 24th minute before Y Kiranbala struck his second goal in the 33rd minute to put Manipur Sangais ahead 7-0 and leave Assam Rhinos in trouble.
After the restart, A Roja scored twice (41′, 45′) to widen the gap even further before Y Kiranbala completed the scoring in the 51st minute.
Earlier in Game 11, Sikkim Pandas beat Tripura Pythons 2-0 for the second victory in three matches.
Both teams started the match cautiously and drew off until Luxmi Tamang found the decisive goal after the 36th minute to give the Sikkim Pandas a 1-0 first half lead.
It was a similar affair after the restart as well before Lako Phuti converted a nice change in the 64th minute to make it 2-0 in favor of the Sikkim Pandas.
While the Tripura Pythons who are yet to open their winning account failed, they came back despite some late chances and eventually the Sikkim Women came home 2-0.
Sikkim Pandas take on Nagaland Wild Hogs tomorrow from 12.30pm before Mizoram Black Bears take on Arunachal Pradesh Tigers.
