Big Margin Win for Karnataka in Women’s National Football

Karnataka defeated meek Rajasthan 11-0 in the 18th Senior Women’s National Football Championship at the Khuman Lampak Stadium, Imphal, Manipur on Tuesday, March 9.

For Karnataka captain Amoolya (SAI), Vanitha (SAI), Sena Loadhima (MCC), Aloka D’ Souza (MCC), and Bindu (JNC) scored two goals each and Hema Rajeshori (SAI) found the target once.

In the next match, state girls meet last year’s runners up Orissa tomorrow, March 11. Orissa toyed with Rajasthan in their first match and defeated them by 29-0. Tomorrow’s game is a must-win game for Karnataka should they want to qualify for the quarterfinals. A draw would not do any good for state as Orissa is way ahead in goal difference.
