Kohima: With wins to their credit in all matches, two teams in the ongoing 4th edition of the Kohima Super Cup 2022 – G Sports FC and New Market FC – on Thursday secured seats for the semi-finals after making it through from Pool-A.
G Sports FC entered the semifinals as the winner of the pool, after securing a draw against New Market FC in their last league match on Thursday at the IG Stadium, Kohima.
A match between the top two teams that needed a victory to topple one another failed, as the match ended in 1-1 draw, and G Sport’s win for the pool was decided by draw-by-lot giving it the upper hand, despite both teams having the same goal difference of +11 and a total of 7 points.
In the match, New Market got off to a promising start as the team’s Limakumzuk Ao scored in the 10th minute of the match. By the second half, Yhunshalo Kemp of G Sports scored the equalizing goal at 60 minutes.
G Sports will next play against the runners up of Pool B in the semifinal round, while New Market FC will take on the Pool B winner in the semifinal round. The top two teams from Pool-B will enter the semi-finals after the final league matches of the tournament on Friday.
