MIZORAM: Aizawl FC kicked off round 6 of the Mizoram Premier League season 6 with a convincing 3-0 victory against former champions Dinthar FC.

Aizawl FC’s efforts bore fruit in the Malsawmtluanga38th minute when Kareem Omlaja headed in from Rochharzela’s corner. The goal was quickly followed by another after a brilliant deliver from S. Malsawmtluanga found Jonathan Lalrawngbawla and the young striker finished with aplomb.
Dinthar FC did come close to pulling one back in the second half but forward Jackson could not find the target while substitutes Nunmawia leh Chhuanmawia found it hard to turn the tide.
And it was Aizawl FC who found the net again in the 88th minute when substitute H. Lalmuankima scored to secure all three points.
Aizawl FC’s K. Lalthathanga was named man of the match.
