Boudha FC promoted

Kathmandu, December 14:

Boudha Football Club got promoted to the upper Division after a 1-1 draw against already qualified Saraswoti Youth Club in the ‘B’ Division League here today.

Boudha are back into the top flight after three years. Since All Nepal Football Association failed to organise ‘B’ Division league for the last two years, Boudha fought back into the ‘A’ Division immediately with the resumption of the League.

Bouddha needed just a draw to make sure they secure one of the two berths available in Group ‘A’ and to their delight Arjun Subba gave them the seventh minute lead. Although, Krishna Gopal Shrestha equalised in the 40th minute, they held on to the score.

Saraswoti topped the four-team Group ‘A’ with seven points, two more than Boudha while Mahabir finished third despite a 4-3 win over Gyan Bhairav Club. Mahabir earned three points and Gyan Bhairav one. Krishna Shrestha and Amar Pun scored a brace each for Mahabir while Suresh Shrestha, Ramesh Katuwal and Bamin Kausi replied for Gyan Bhairav.
