Hero Santosh Trophy: Meghalaya, Railways pick first win

Meghalaya edged out Manipur and Railways stay in the hunt with a win over Delhi in the second round of games in Gropu B of Hero Santosh Trophy – Final Round

Manipur goalkeeper Ngamsanglena Haokip’s horrible error caused his team dearly as they went down to Meghalaya at the Capital Football Arena today.

In a game that was always going to be decided on fine margins, Meghalaya were the ones who showed more attacking initiative, their wingers in particular, harassing the Manipur defense. For their part, Manipur’s attacking pair of Subhash Singh and Naocha Singh looked like a shadow of the duo, who had terrorized Railways in the opener. 

In the end, Haokip’s inability to cleanly catch (or even parry) Brolington’s 61st-minute freekick, and instead spill it inside the goalline decided the game.

In the day’s other match, Delhi succumbed to a tame loss to Railways in the evening game at the Kalinga Stadium. Nuruddin’s goal on the stroke of halftime, was enough for Railways to take the win. For coach Mohammad Sabir, the loss was a setback from their invigorating display against West Bengal, and means they are now bottom of the group, albeit separated from the second-place team by only two points.
