SFA PREMIER DIVISION LEAGUE Aakraman FC and Sikkim Sporting Academy play out contesting draw

Gangtok, 30 Jul:

A contesting match between Sikkim Aakraman Football Club and the State Sporting Academy in the ongoing Sikkim Football Association Premier Division Sikkim-League 2018 here at Paljor Stadium ended in a 01-01 draw today. Both the teams shared a point each from this draw.

The match was full of attacks and counter-attacks from the start, but both the teams missed some good opportunities to take an early lead in the match. The first half appeared headed for a goalless play, but with the help of a goal by Milan Chettri in the 43rd minute, SSA finished the first half 1-0 ahead.

The SSA boys could not maintain the lead for long, and soon after the second half began, Sikkim Aakraman FC’s captain, Ashish Chettri, scored the equaliser in the 55th minute.

Both the teams played neck-to-neck from thereon but missed the net to move the scoreboard any more. Finally, the match ended in a 01-01 draw. The referee also stopped the match in the second half for some time due to very low visibility owing to heavy mist on the field.

On 31 July, United Sikkim Football Club will take on Boys Club, Gangtok.
