Young Guns FC secured a nail-biting victory against Mumbai Strikers with a late, injury-time goal, clinching the win at 1-0 in today’s MFA Super League encounter.

The match kicked off with Mumbai Strikers displaying early attacking prowess, carving out promising chances. Nirbhay Patpatia’s precision on the right flank set up Ankush Singh, whose left-footed attempt narrowly missed the target.

Meanwhile, Young Guns’ Arnav Krishnamoorthy electrified the left wing but faced a spectacular save from vigilant Strikers goalkeeper Muhammed Shaheer. Shaheer continued to command his defense effectively, orchestrating the backline with strategic guidance.

Mumbai Strikers, determined to break the deadlock, saw Ananth Kumar’s low shot denied by Young Guns’ keeper Vatsal. Kishan Dubey also tried his luck with a shot from outside the box, drifting just left of the mark. The first half concluded with Young Guns launching another near miss, as Naren Thakur’s cross from the right met Dharmendra Tripathi’s touch, sailing over the crossbar.

The second half unfolded with Young Guns initiating swift attacks, threatening with Naren’s low cross, skillfully intercepted by Amarjit in a crucial defensive move. Mumbai Strikers responded with promising opportunities, with Ravish Dsouza’s delivery headed over by Ananth Kumar. Armaan Sheikh found Manav in a prime position, but the left-footed attempt missed its mark.

Young Guns persisted, testing Shaheer with a headed attempt from Tarun. As the game approached its conclusion, Strikers sought to break the deadlock, with Bikram Singh’s left-footed shot saved by Vatsal. However, in a last-minute twist, Young Guns’ Tarun capitalized on a goalmouth scramble, securing the decisive goal and sealing the victory just moments before the final whistle.

The heartbreak in injury time leaves Mumbai Strikers reflecting on missed opportunities, while Young Guns celebrate a hard-fought win. The MFA Super League continues to deliver thrilling moments, keeping fans on the edge of their seats.
