Debutant team Viswemi FC came from behind to snatch victory over Unity FC 2-1 to enter the semi-final round of the 20th NSF Martyrs’ Memorial Trophy played here at Kohima local ground on Monday.

Playing the last quarterfinal match of the tournament, Unity FC were without two key players -winger Petevizo Kezie-o and defender Olando Yimchunger.

Viswemi FC made a better start but couldn’t break the deadlock. Unity FC, on the other hand, managed to do some damages with their counter attacks as Keneikhrietuo scored from a close range in the 32nd minute to take the lead in the first half.

However, the second half was a different story as Viswemi FC’s winger Kelengoto scored within the introduction on the play. Kelesal struck the winning goal for Viswemi FC in the 58th minute and with no comeback from the opponent team, Viswemi team reached the semi-final round.

With the victory, Viswemi FC will take on Meriema Village Youth Organisation on October 17 in the second semi-final match. Viliehu Nguzhü, president, Angami Sports Association (ASA) was the match patron.
