Dimapur, Oct. 28 (EMN): Defending champs Trinity Sporting blanked Nizams FC 4 – 0 to find a berth in the top three of the league standings this week. Although the Nizams started strong gaining ball possession most of the time, a misunderstanding between Nizams goalie Temsumeren and left back defender Shem opened a chance for Trinity winger Gigin to take advantage of the melee to score the opening goal for his team.

The defending champs scored another within minutes, this time through Viseyie. The Nizams almost hit back as a dashing Aloto outran his marker, however he struggled to connect the volley and the ball was safely collected by goalie Aning.

As the match entered the second half, misfortune struck the Nizams’ side as a penalty was awarded for a handball inside the six-yard area. Viseyie stepped up to take the penalty doubling his scoring tally. In similar fashion, another penalty was awarded to the winning side, however Nizams custodian Temsumeren made an acrobatic dive to deny Trinity striker Atokito’s spot kick.

Atokito redeemed himself for his miss earlier as he unleashed a sensational goal which rocketed into the back of the net just before the referee blew the final whistle.

In other matches, Natak FC thrashed CASE FC 3 – 0, Sporting Union beat Joga Bonito 3 – 1, and Super Strikers settled for a 3-3 draw with Ruboo United.
