  • 2022-02-20

Jawalakhel Youth Club (JYC) defeated Himalayan Sherpa Club (HSC) 2-1 to breathe a sigh of relief but still have to wait for the result of other games in their hopes for survival while Manang Marsyangdi Club's (MMC) hopes to finish second in the table took a severe blow after losing 1-0 to New Road Team in the Qatar Airways Martyr's Memorial 'A' Division League 2021/22 on Sunday.

In the first match at Dasharath Stadium, Rup Bahadur Lama and Onguna Junior scored for HSC in the win. Lama opened the scoring in the 15th minute but after Amrit Shrestha levelled in the 71st minute, Junior secured all three points two minutes from time.

The victory means JYC now have 13 points and have a game to play. A point in their last game against Sankata Club will ensure their A division status.

In the second game of the day, MMC suffered their second consecutive defeat in the league after going down 1-0 to NRT.

NRT jumped to second in the table after the victory ensured by Messouke Oloumou's goal in the 26th minute. NRT and MMC both have 20 points but NRT are ahead by virtue of better head-to-head difference.

The defeat also severely dashed MMC's hopes to finish second in the table. They now have 20 points after 12 games and can also be overtaken by Tribhuvan Army Football Club, on 19 points, who face Sankata Club on Tuesday.

The only match on Monday will be played between Brigade Boys Club vs Satdobato Youth Club.
