KOHIMA FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Defending champions Ziekezou SC beat New Market FC 1-0 at the ongoing Kohima Football League organized by Kohima Town Club on Thursday.   
In a very competitive match, both teams displayed their best tactics and strength. Neikethozo Yhome scored for Ziekezou SC in the 40th minute. 
After the breather, Ziekezou SC continued to dominate the game but the team was wasteful in the second half. Ziekezou could have doubled the lead; however Vilhoubeituo, who came one on one with the keeper, shot the ball wide off the target.
Punuru Neinu was denied by the goalkeeper Lhiwete Koza twice as he proved heroic to the team but New Market failed to create much to level the score as the match ended in favour of defending champ 1-0. Khriekethozo Keretsii (23) of Ziekezou SC was cautioned for unsporting behaviour in the play field.
