Mokokchung, April 26 (EMN): The Dimapur District Football Association made an easy passage to semifinals without much sweat, defeating debutant Niuland District Football Association by 3-0.

The second half saw Kakhevi securing their victory in the 70th minute making it 3-0 for the team.

Dimapur winger Kakhevi’s form has been incredible this tournament tormenting the defensive line. His pace and goal instinct made him one of the best wingers in the tournament. He has scored three goals in four games for Dimapur team.

Niuland didn’t prove themselves worthy in the game as their sloppy defending conceded much to the despair of the team and the striker’s finishing touch was missing in the game.

It is all over for the Niuland team as they are now eliminated from the tournament.
