IMPHAL, Sep 18 : Abul Kalam netted twice to help AKSA-Kwakta win 3-1 over SYC-Sagang in the opening match of the 3rd K Babu Singh Memorial Super Division League 2021-22 organised by DFA Moirang at Kwakta Public Ground.
Md Abul Kalam drew first blood in the 16th minute with a precise shot to give AKSA the lead but Tetepa scored the very next minute to ensure SYC, Sagang came to level terms.
The two sides continued to trade runs against one another in search of the winner but lack of finishing touch held them to a 1-1 draw till the break.
AKSA however entered the field with more purpose after the break and retained the lead via Md Jahir Khan goal in the 51st minute before Abul Kalam had his second in the 56th minute to make it 3-1. The scoreline remained unchanged even as SYC poured in more men to cut the margin and eventually AKSA went home with all three points.
FC Kumbi will play ELSA, Naransena in the second match of this 5-team super division league tournament tomorrow.
