A second half goal from skipper Hemang Jadhav gives Young Guns (Rhema) a hard fought win as the club jumps to 2nd spot in the league table on par on points with Mumbai Ultras behind only on Goal difference

In a riveting encounter between Young Guns (Rhema) and Spartans FC, football enthusiasts were treated to a spectacle of intense battles, near misses, and exceptional saves. The match unfolded as a dramatic saga, filled with captivating moments that kept fans on the edge of their seats.

The intensity escalated when Spartans’ Shirinmi Kazingmei struck the post with a header following a well-placed early cross by the defender, only to be thwarted by Young Guns (Rhema)’s resolute defense.

Young Guns, equally determined, had their opportunities. A free-kick by Sameer Sawant from 30 yards out came agonizingly close.
