IMPHAL, Sep 10 : Dimapur Road Athletic Organisation (DM RAO), Sekmai rode on Oinam Lamnganba's first half brace to prevail 4-0 over Anouba Imagi Mangal (AIM), Khabam today in a 15th Manipur State League Group B match at Artificial Turf Ground, Lamlong Thongkhong.
DM RAO got off to a flying start making most of the possession and found the lead in the 16th minute via Oinam Malemnganba who banged in another goal three minutes later to give his team a 2-0 first half lead against AIM.
The Sekmai side were in control of the game after the break as well as AIM struggled to find their composure and it was Manuhormayum Kabiraj Sharma who gave DM RAO a 3-0 lead with his 69th minute goal. Ngathem Imarson then hit the decisive goal four minutes later.
In another Group B encounter staged later, KIYC-Kshetrigao extended their winning run to two with a slender 1-0 win over NISA, Thangmeiband.
The only goal that settled the game in favour of the Kshetrigao side was scored by Somishon Shirak in the 38th minute of the match.
NISA toiled hard to draw level after the restart but failed to make the most of their chances as KIYC defence stood like an impregnable wall.
