Machhindra Club stunned New Road Team as Somide Adelaja grabbed late winner in the fourth round match of Qatar Airways Martyr’s Memorial “A” Division League. Somide converted a wonderful header from close range in Bijay Dhimal’s searching long cross from right.
Machhindra took control of the ball possession and created numbers of good chances throughout the game. Bishal Rai missed a good heading chance from the center of the box at 31st minute. Three minutes later, Machhindra won a free kick just outside of the box. The man in charge, Devendra Tamang, got unlucky as his well struck powerful free kick hit the framework.
New Road Team came up with couple of promising counter attacks in the second half causing Machhindra defense some trouble. However, none of the side could take a lead until 90th minute where Machhindra finally scored, thanks to Somide’s header.
