A splendid second-half display gives Kenkre FC all three points

17th September 2017, Mumbai: On the 14th Matchday of WIFA Women’s League – Indian Women’s League (IWL) Preliminary Round, Kenkre FC met PIFA Sports in an anticipating clash at Cooperage Stadium. In the corresponding fixture, PIFA Sports had defeated Kenkre FC 3-2 to snatch all three points.

In what turned out to be a closely-contested clash, Kenkre FC managed to overcome PIFA Sports 2-0, courtesy of a splendid second-half display where Diparnika Dey and Manisha scored one each to give Kenkre FC an all-important win.

Right from the beginning of the game, PIFA and Kenkre were quite compact in their defensive structure. Both the sides sat back and soaked the pressure from the attackers in hope to launch a counter-attack against the run of play. PIFA’s Suparna came agonizingly close to open the scoring when she was set up by Sneha Manchkar on the right flank. Although, Suparna only managed to hit her effort wide of the post.

Meanwhile, on the other end, Kenkre’s forward Mamta wreaked havoc after coming close on numerous occasions. She has been on an incredible form throughout the Campaign along with attacker Manisha. At the break, the score was still locked at 0-0.

The second-half brought fortunes for Kenkre as they stepped up their intensity and tempo to slowly dictate the match proceedings. Just before Suparna and Deepika Masurkar missed a glorious chance for PIFA, Diparnika Dey scored a sublime goal on the other end to give Kenkre FC a crucial lead.

With the time running out, Kenkre FC was awarded a free-kick just outside the box. Manisha took advantage from the initial cross, made a twisted turn into the box and scored Kenkre’s second goal of the game to wrap up the game in a stellar way.

Football Leaders Academy and Rush Soccer continues their fine run

13th September 2017, Mumbai: After displaying a great brand of football in the first stage of the Indian Women’s League (IWL) Preliminary Round, both, Football Leaders Academy and Rush Soccer carried their fine form to secure yet another victory at Cooperage Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Football Leaders Academy (FLA) vs Kenkre FC

In the first clash of Matchday 12, Football Leaders Academy (FLA) faced Kenkre FC in hope to retain their place at the top of the table as Bodyline SC had leapfrogged them after clinching a 4-0 victory on the previous day. Whereas, Kenkre FC headed towards the match to secure their second victory of the campaign.

FLA started off brightly and dictated the match proceedings right from their defense. Laura Estebeiro’s ball distribution from the back caused Kenkre FC several problems as she precisely found space to create a number of opportunities for FLA.

The deadlock was broken midway into the first-half when Archana Thakur superbly placed her effort into the back of the net to score her first goal of the campaign. Although she went on to miss several opportunities to double FLA’s lead, the forward finally scored her second goal just before the half-time with a sublime goal.

The second-half proved nothing but a reminiscent of the first forty-minutes. Football Leaders Academy clearly dominated the match as they left no stones unturned to snatch all three points and restore their position at the top of the table.

Striker Shimona Saldhana who had bagged a hat-trick in the first match of the campaign against Kenkre FC once again got on the scoresheet to score her fourth goal of the campaign. The fourth and final goal was netted by Amrita Poojary in the dying minutes of the match.

Rush Soccer vs PIFA Sports 

The second clash of the day saw Rush Soccer and PIFA Sports locking horns with each other in an anticipating clash at Cooperage. Although PIFA Sports were equally better for the majority of the match, the clinical strikeforce of Rush Soccer once again turned decisive as a splendid second-half display saw them winning the match 4-0.

PIFA displayed brilliant attacking football in the first-half as Striker Jyoti running the show. The only missing jigsaw in the puzzle for PIFA was a ‘clinical strike’. The girls in red came close to open the scoring on numerous occasions but couldn’t manage to put the ball in the back of the net.

Meanwhile, on the other end, Rush’s Jyoti Kumar had other ideas when midway into the first-half she fired a volley against the run of play to break the deadlock to give Rush Soccer a crucial lead.

Deepika Masurkar and Jyoti turned out to be a potent threat for Rush’s defense but once again the killer instinct in front of the goal was missing from PIFA. Their counterpart swiftly took advantage of PIFA’s missing opportunities and fired in three more goals in the second half to wrap up the match.

Deepika Singh scored two quick-fire goals before star striker Nishu Singh completed the victory with a wonderful goal to put the final nail in the coffin.
