Kathmandu: With a goal at the 53rd minute by Norlan Novruzov of Machhindra Football Club (MFC) against Saatdobato Youth Club (SYC), the defending champion Machhindra won the title of the Martyr’s Memorial ‘A’ Division League on Wednesday.
At the match played at Dasharath Rangasala, Kathmandu, Devendra Tamang’s header on Sunil Bal’s cross was saved by SYC goalie Abishek Baral but Norlan scored the goal after the ball returned hitting the crossbar.
With this match, MFC recorded 29 points from 11 matches. The team won nine matches and played a draw on two occasions. Now, in the 12th round of the league, MFC will play against the Three Star Club and the last match against APF Football Club.
Even if MFC loses both the matches, the second-placed team can’t make it to the top.
