IMPHAL Dec 5 : District Sports Association Thoubal (DFA Thoubal) beat Imphal West District Football Association (IWDFA) by a narrow 2-1 margin on the second day of the ongoing 29th Junior Boy’s Inter District Football Tournament 2017-18 organised under the aegis of All Manipur Football Association (AMFA) at Artificial Turf Ground, Khuman Lampak.
DFA Thoubal were first to open up early in the 4th minute taking advantage of a defensive lapse. It was K Yuremba who intruded deep into the IWDFA’s territory and sent home the ball through a well taken shot.
Stung by the goal, IWDFA also responded soon with a series of raids keeping the defence lines intact at the same time. Relying more on the wings they began to stretch the defence line of DFA Thoubal with crisp passing and upward crosses. Ultimately they got a crack in the 25th minute and it was K Angelo who cracked a power packed shot to level the score 1-1.
The parity did not last long as DFA Thoubal also rallied back with a series of incisive runs that crumbled the IWDFA’s defence. K Yuremba who was well placed on the edge of the rival’s box collected a well measured pass and successfully sidelined a few defender to bang in his second goal past the custodian of IWDFA in the 30th minute to hand his team a hard fought 2-1 victory.
