Morang FC and Brigade Boys Club (BBC) advanced to the semi-finals of the Lalit Memorial U-18 Football Championship with identical 2-1 wins at the Anfa Complex in Satdobato on Sunday.
In the opening match of the day, Morgan edged past Chyasal Youth Club before BBC sent Jhapa XI packing. Ashish Chaudhary netted both the goals for Morang late on. After a drab first half, Ashish made the breakthrough scoring in the 73rd minute before doubling their advantage in the 81st minute. Roshan Bhujel pulled one back for Chyasal in the 89th minute but their quest for equaliser went in vain as they failed to find net again.
In another match, BBC rallied from a goal down to stun Group ‘C’ toppers Jhapa, who had maintained their winning streak in group stage. Dojhang Lingden provided seventh minute lead to the visitors before Rajat Tiwari restored parity in the 14th minute. Rajat ensured the victory in the 68th minute with his second goal.
Tribhuvan Army Club will take on Himalayan Sherpa Club and Friends Club will be up against Lumbini FC in the remaining two quarter-final matches on Monday.
