Manipur rout Tripura

The action was suspended Monday due to Tripura sending a team which was not affiliated to the All India Football Federation (AIFF). But the AIFF relented and gave Tripura the go ahead for matches to resume in the event. In a Group ‘B’ match, Manipur humiliated Tripura 24-0. For Manipur, P H Beena Devi, who emerged the highest scorer for the team with six goals, S Reena Roy and Mandakini, both were on target five times, were the star performers on the day.

In a Group ‘A’ match, reigning champions Orissa were powered by a seventh minute strike by forward Sasmita Malik. Orissa then struck five times in the second half for an easy win. Tamil Nadu registered a 2-0 win against Jharkhand in another Group A tie. TN girls surged ahead through R Suganya’s third minute goal while captain J Mahalakshmi struck in the 27th minute to seal the win.
