Invictus FC and FC Pochury won their respective matches to enter the pre- quarter-final round of the ongoing 25th edition of Classic Cup played here at Kohima local ground on Thursday.

Playing the first match, Invictus FC overpowered XII Tribes United FC 2-0. Dilo Koza brace in the second half was enough for Invictus FC to enter the next round of the tournament. His goal came in the 37th and 61st minute of the match.

In the second match, PC Pochury defeated Fusion FC by 3-0 in a one sided match. Pochury team opened the scoring within the introduction of the game with Atsiatho Nyuthe scoring from a close range in the 2nd minute, and their captain Dominic Ngouri doubled the lead in the 24th minute from a defensive error. 

In the second half, Pochury striker Chisie Nyusou scored the third goal in the 32nd minute to make it 3-0 to win the match. 

Pochury team should have scored more goals but some lacklustre finish from their strikers failed to find the back of the net. Fusion FC were toothless in the attack as they crushed out of the tournament failing to register any shot on target. 

With the victory, Pochury FC will play against Invictus FC on November 13 in the pre-quarterfinal round of the tournament.
