Church Boys United defeated defending champions Machhindra Football Club 2-1 to climb to the top of the standings of the Martyr's Memorial A Division League 2023.
In the match at ANFA Complex in Satdobato, Anjan Bista gave Church Boys the lead in the 41st minute. Machhindra levelled through Omolaja Nurain Kareem's penalty kick in the 65th minute but Kamal Shrestha scored six minutes later to give Church Boys the victory.

In the other match at Dasharath Stadium, APF Football Club defeated Tribhuvan Army Football Club 3-0 in the departmental derby.
APF took the lead in the 41st minute when Army's substitute Youdha Shahi inadvertently put the ball into his own net. Armand Beadoum's shot had gone past rushing Army goalkeeper Bikesh Kuthu but hit the upright. A sliding Shahi in an attempt to clear the ball shot the ball into his own net.
APF's second goal was scored by Awas Lamichhane who took advantage of a defensive error by Army to bury it into the net in the 56th minute. Six minutes later, Nabin Lama danced past few Army defenders to secure all the three points.

Both Jawalakhel and Church Boys United, who face defending Champions Machhindra Football Club on Wednesday, are level on 27 points but Jawalakhel top the standings due to better head-to-head difference between the two sides.

In the other match at Chyasal Stadium, Sankata Club defeated Royal Blue Satdobato Youth Club with a brace from Youssef Atriss. A victory for Satdobato would have put them in the second place but the defeat means they are fifth with 23 points.

The victory puts Sankata in ninth place with 20 points.
