New Radiant SC made their return to the Male League in winning style today with a 3-0 win over TC Sports. Goals from Mohamed Umair, Hamza Mohamed and Haroon Amiri ensured a winning start to the blues.
TC Sports started today’s game with their newly signed goalkeeper Ifrah Areef who performed superb against the strongest strikers including last two seasons top scorers Ali Fasir and Ali Ashfag. Meanwhile, New Radiant started without key figures including Rilwan Waheed, Ahamed Abdulla, Imran Nasheed and Mohamed Rasheed.
Both sides played well in the first forty minutes until Umair Mohamed scored just 2 minutes to the half time. Umairs goal came from an assist by newly imported Afghanistan defender Amiri.
TC was down to 10 men in the second half as their substitute player Ahmed Rilwan was sent off with a direct red card on a serious foul. As TC was down to 10 men, New Radiant strengthened their strike force with more attacks.
Hamza Mohamed made his name on the score card in the 85th minute and Amiri made his name on the score card on his debut with a header. Umair was later named as the Man of the Match.
New Radiant will face defending Champions Maziya in their next game while TC Sports will face Green Streets next week. Top six teams after two round-robin rounds will qualify for the Premier League.
