Shillong: After losing their first three matches, a much-changed Laban finally ended with a 1-0 win over Nangkiew Irat in the 12th match of the Shillong Premier League 2019 at the JN Stadium here yesterday.
A free-kick from Asito Krose in the 51st minute put Laban in front.
Laban made several changes to their starting XI, changes out all but four of their non-Meghalaya players. Nangkiew also didn’t have two of their most dangerous playmakers – Damehun Syih and Roikhihbha Nongtdu.
Their first points puts Laban on three, ahead of Nongrim Hills (1) and behind Langsning (4). This was not only the first match in which they scored a goal, it was also their first with a clean sheet after conceding 10 goals in their previous three fixtures. This was also Nangkiew’s first defeat of the season after they won their opener and played out two goalless draws after that.
Tomorrow Rangdajied United are scheduled to face Ryntih at 3:30PM.
