By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Nov 8 : YDC, Khoirom enjoyed a comfortable 3-1 comeback win over SYDA, Athokpam  today in the 15th league match of the Lambamayum Memcha Devi Super Division Football League Tournament 2021 being organised by the District Football Association Thoubal at Thoubal Kshetrileikai playground.
SYDA dominated the earlier proceedings and were 1-0 ahead in the 17th minute with Hijam Ronaldo finding the target.
SYDA were however reduced to 10-man with A Waran being sent off following a reckless challenge in the 28 minute and it took not much time for YDC to draw level with K Birjit capitalizing a fine chance in the 31st minute.
As the Athokpam side were weakened, YDC were relentless in their effort after the break and eventually broke the deadlock in the 45th minute via S Prem.
To much disappointment, SYDA conceded a penalty late in the 70th minute which was converted well by YDC striker S Danabir with perfection.
