SHILLONG: KRYHPSA decimated Indira Gandhi Academy for Sports and Education 10-1 in a group stage match of the second edition of the Hero Indian Women’s League at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong, Meghalaya today (April 08, 2018).
Four goals each by Ratanbala Devi and Bala Devi accompanied by a Dangmei Grace brace led KRYHPSA to an easy win in a one-sided match, which was dominated by the team from the opening minutes of the match.
In the 2nd minute itself, Dangmei Grace opened the floodgates when she found the net to give KRYHPSA the lead. Shortly after in the 17th minute, Bala Devi’s rasping shot found the back of the net to give KRYHPSA a comfortable lead.
Two goals by Ratanbala Devi in the 35th minute and in the added extra time of the first half enabled KRYHPSA to take a comfortable lead as they led 4-0 at half-time.
The onslaught continued in the second half and Bala Devi quickly found the net in the 47th minute to make it 5-0, before Indira Gandhi Academy pulled a goal back through Pradeepa Sekar in the 63rd minute.
A flurry of goals followed thereafter. Ratanbala Devi completed her hattrick in the 64th minute, Dangmei Grace who proved to be a menace for the opposing defence added the second goal to her tally in the 66th minute and Ratanbala Devi once again found the net in the 69th minute to make the scoreline read 8-1.
Bala Devi’s 73rd and 89th minute strike added more gloss to the scoreline as the full-time scoreline read 10-1 in KRYHPSA’s favour.
