New Delhi, February 21
Delhi Police beat Shahdara 2-1 in Group A while Hindustan downed N D Heroes 2-0 in the Delhi Soccer Association (DSA)-SAIL Senior Division Super League Football Championship at the Ambedkar Stadium in the Capital on Thursday.

After a barren first half, Delhi Police took the lead through Mahesh Bist in the 57th minute when he shot the ball home from close (1-0). But, after conceding the goal, Shahdara reorganised their forces and made several threatening raids at the rival goal, but inept shooting prevented them from cashing in on their chances. However, they managed to equalise in the 73rd minute when nippy winger Niraj Chaughary found the target.

However, five minutes later, Delhi Police regained their lead when striker Jagyaram Boro, in a counter attack, headed home following a cross from outside right Abdul Mutalib (2-1). Delhi Police have so far collected four points from two matches while Shahdara have yet to open their account.

In the second match, Hindustan had to fight hard to score their first goal, which came only in the 63rd minute when their Nigerian striker Lawrence headed in (1-0). Hitender Singh Rawat scored the second goal during injury time when he dodged past the advancing custodian, Shanter Kumar, to shoot home (2-0). Hindustan have collected six points from two matches.

Friday’s fixtures: Tarun Sangha vs Garhwal Heroes (1 pm); Indian National vs Moonlight (3 pm)—Ambedkar Stadium.
