MIZORAM: Newly promoted Mizoram Police FC grabbed their first points of MPL 6 in a 1-1 draw against last season’s finalists Bethlehem Vengthlang FC on Thursday.
MPFC got the better of their opponents in the early stages and tested BVT FC’s goalkeeper Ruatpuia through efforts from striker Valpuia and Biaknunga. Vanlalhruaia also fired a good chance wide.
MS Dawngzela missed an opportunity to give his side the lead at the other end but they soon got their lead when Laldinpuia finished off a freekick in the 37th minute to give BVT FC the lead.
Mizoram Police,who controlled most of the first half found their equalizer just 2 minutes into the restart when Valpuia struck from a freekick.
MPFC again controlled much of the second half and they came very close to finding a winner late on with Zosangliana striking the bar.
Mizoram Police FC will now face champions Chanmari FC next week while Bethlehem Vengthlang FC will entertain Dinthar FC.
