New Radiant earned a hard fought 1-0 victory over United Victory.
New Radiant who started the game without Captain Ali Ashfaq, Goalkeeper Imran and Defender Rilwan had difficulties to score due to United Victory’s tight defensive game.
UV’s luck ran out when the referee showed a straight red card to Ismail Shafeeu for a dangerous tackle on New Radiant defender Gotor. With ten men, UV held off to Half Time.
New Radiant made half time substitution and brought Ali Ashfaq who changes the game completely with his ability to penetrate into UV’s defense line to create several goal scoring chances but failed to convert one. UV tried to frustrate New Radiant by wasting time throughout the second half.
The only goal came from a resulting Penalty when Ali Ashfaq was brought down in side the box. Ali Fasir made no mistake from the spot and gave a well deserved three precious point to New Radiant.
