Youngmen struggle to beat Uttarakhand
Our Sports Reporter

New Delhi, August 14
Youngmen Club struggled to beat Uttarakhand 2-0 in a decisive match to decide the second berth for the Super Six from Group C preliminary league in the Delhi Soccer Association-SAIL A Division Football League Championship at the Ambedkar Stadium on Thursday.

Younmen secured a berth in the Super League though they had lost to Garhwal Heroes in an earlier match. Uttarakhand failed to qualify. After a goalless first half, Youngmen stepped on the pedal to dominate the show, but strikers Faiz Alam and Suresh failed to cash in on the chances through their erratic shooting. Though Uttarakhand defenders Sanjay Nayal, Arjun Negi and Siddharth put up a stout display, their wall was breached when Faiz Alam hit the mark twice in the span of eight minutes to earn full points for Youngmen.

The Super Six League matches will start from August 16 at the Ambedkar Stadium and the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Earlier, in relegation play-off matches, Nav Jyoti Nepal prevailed over Youngsters 4-0 to stay put in A Division while Cosmos and Youngsters face the prospect of being relegated to the B Division. Nitin Kumar scored two goals while Surjit Pradhan and Jheman Thapa accounted for the other goals.

The B Division final match will be played between Rohini and Paschim Heroes on Friday at 3 pm, followed by a match between Youngsters and Cosmos.
