Chhinga Veng FC, playing under a new manager with an injury hit squad, fought valiantly and at least deserved a point or more for their efforts and will certainly feel hard-done by the result.
Both teams started the game cautiously and looked wary of each other, boith content to play a patient game. It was Chhinga Veng who had then gained the upperhand with Paul Ramfangzauva and Khawpuimawia looking threatening.
Chhinga Veng continued to threaten their opponents in the second half as well, with BVT FC looked to hit back on the counter-attack.
As the scoreline looked set for a draw, it was sheer grit from BVT FC that earned them 3 points as Lalrammuanpuia found himself on the end of a team move near 2 minutes into stoppage time.
Goalscorer Lalrammuanpuia was duly awarded The Man of The Match for his effort.
