MMC go down fighting

Bangkok, May 7 :

Manang Marsyangdi Club went down 0-1 against the University champions Kasam Bandit here in the second match on Sunday.

Unlike their first friendly, which they lost 0-3 , MMC played better today. Poor finishing was the key reason for MMC’s defeat. Basanta Gauchan failed to score in the third minute. Raj Kumar Ghising also ruined another chance in the 27th while Ghising wasted a certain goal in the 66th as he failed to beat the opponent goalkeeper in one-on-one encounter.

The decider came two minutes before break as Sur Dev Thoshai scored following a miss-pass from MMC defender Sagar Thapa. MMC coach Chhiring Lobsang Gurung was happy over the performance. “Our boys found their rhythm which will untimately benefit in the AFC President’s Cup,” he said.
