Asufü Christian Institute (ACI), Manipur and Naga Hospital Colony Youth Organisation won their respective matches to enter the pre-quarterfinal round of the ongoing 20th NSF Martyrs’ Memorial Trophy 2019 at Kohima local ground on Saturday.

In the first match, Naga Hospital Colony outclassed Sports Link FC 3-1. Gideon Leo opened the scoring for Naga Hospital team in the 65th minute, while Atho Dzeyie scored in the 69th to make it 2-0.

Sports Link FC were down to 10-men in the 78th minute when Hüveto Vadeo was send-off for unsporting behaviour. However, they got a consolation goal through Vetho Venuh in the 87th minute. 

But Dzeyie finished off the game scoring his second goal in the 89th minute in favour of Naga Hospital team.

Meanwhile, Asufü Christian Institute Manipur blanked Gari-Ciko Club Gariphema 3-0.

Manipur team got off to a better start and took control of the game, but lack of finishing from their striker end led to a goalless draw till the 38th minutes. With two minutes remaining in the first half, Dhale broke the deadlock for the team to ease some pressure.

Gariphema team only managed to register two shots against their opponent. Dhake doubled his score in the 44th minute through a stunning long range kick and substitute Aleshio tapped-in the third goal in the 69th minute to hand the Manipur team the victory.
