Nayabasti Yuva Club (NYC) and Tusal Youth Club (TYC) played a 1-1 draw in the Martyr's Memorial 'B' Division League on Wednesday.
Bibek Gurung opened the scoring for NYC in the 39th minute. TYC levelled in the second half through Alone Rai in the 71st minute.
TYC's coach Naresh Shrestha lamented on the lack of coordination between his wingers and strikers. "Our midfield could not hold the ball as we wanted. We were disorganized," said Shrestha.
NYC's assistant coach Bikash Rai said they were happy for the point but could have done much better. "Our defense failed to mark their players which led to their goal. We lacked communication gap," said Rai.
In the second match, Khumaltar Youth Club (KYC) defeated Divine Boys Union Club (BUC) 3-0. A brace from Sabin KC and another from Ayush Ghalan saw KYC move level on points with leaders Satdobato Youth Club.
KYC's coach Rajesh Shahi said their main objective in the league is to keep winning. "We played well today. But winning is not going to be enough for us. Our promotion bid depends on results of other matches," said Shahi.
BUC's assistant coach Ranjit Singh said he was surprised by the team's performance today. "We had played so well in our last match. But everything went wrong today," said Singh. Singh said injury to key defender and giving away possession in the midfield area hampered their performance today.
