Chaudandigadhi lose to Chandrapur after goalkeeper error

  • 2021-02-16

Chaudandigadhi Municipality Udaypur suffered their 11th consecutive defeat in the National Women's League after error by their goalkeeper condemned them to a 2-1 defeat against Chandrapur Municipality Rautahat.

Rajani Thokar and Dil Kumari Rana Magar scored for Chandrapur to give them their third win in the tournament. Chandrapur took the lead after Chaudandigadhi's goalkeeper Debika Shrestha failed to save a simple shot by Thokar in the additional minutes of first half.

Magar added second after another error by Shrestha in the 67th minute. Manita Tamang pulled a goal back one minute after Chandrapur's second but the team could not find the equalizer which would have earned them their first point of the tournament.

Chandrapur's coach Noorraj Kafle said his team have nothing to gain or lose after their sixth place finish in the league. "We played well today despite the fact that a win or defeat would not have changed our position on the table. Injuries to key players hampered our progress in the league," said Kafle.

Chaudandigadhi's coach Dipak Thapa said the team improved their performance of late but has not been able to win points. "If we compare our early performance to those of now, we can find we have improved a lot. But points have eluded us. We hope to finish strongly in our last match against Nepal Police Club," said Thapa.

Chandrapur will finish sixth on the table as they are five points behind Nepal Police Club (NPC), who have two games on hand, and nine above Chaudandigadhi. Bottom-placed Chaudandigadhi, meanwhile, will go into their last match against NPC scoring four times and letting in 96 goals.
