Manipur Police SC players celebrate after scoring a goal against Gokulam Kerala FC at the Indian Women’s League semi-finals in Ludhiana on Monday

Imphal: Manipur Police SC is all set to play the 2018-19 Hero Indian Women’s League final after a thrilling performance beating Gokulam Kerala FC by 4-2 at the Guru Nanak Stadium in Punjab’s Ludhiana city on Monday.

According to the All India Football Federation, despite being one player down at the 47th minute, the Manipur team launched forays after forays to crowd out Gokulam’s midfield.

Manipur’s Romi Devi was sent off for a deliberate handball but that did not deter the team from playing their usual attacking brand of football; and finally it paid dividends with Bala Devi up front. The Manipur Police SC captain scored all the four goals for her team as they beat Gokulam Kerala FC 4-2 to reach the final
