Skylight team emerged champions of 4th Phaipijang Pro League 2019 after defeating defending champions Ngambom United CF via tie-breaker on Saturday.

Goal keeping heroics by Skylight custodian shattered Ngambom United’s and the Ngambom Faithfull’s dream of clinching their 3rd title. 
The game started on a bright note for Skylight when the referee awarded a penalty in their favour and team’s top scorer Ngamkhogin Doungel made no mistake to give his team the lead. Ngambom were soon 2-0 down when Mangkholen Singsit caught the opposition keeper off his line to lift the ball over him and into the back of the net. 
In injury time, Cobminthang Hangsing reduced the deficit before going into break. 
The 2nd half of the game brought the much needed vibe into the match and it was game on when Ngambom United were awarded a penalty which Haotinlen Thomson scored to equalise. With the score tied on 2-2, the defending champions erupted into life and started being a constant threat infront of the goal. And soon enough, Haotinlen came out on top again lifting the ball over the keeper and into the back of the net to give Ngambom United CF the lead. 
The defending champions were within sniffing distance of their 3rd title; however, Nehminlen fired home a loose ball from inside the Ngambom box to equalize the goal in the injury time. After 70 minutes of normal play, the game went into extra time and in the 1st half of extra time, Thanglenngam, headed in another fine goal to give his team the lead. However, Skylight came back with a goal of their own through Letminlal to take the game into tie break. Skylight went on to win shoot out 3-0 with their goal keeper making 2 vital saves.
