Young Boys Of Chanakyapuri VS Mayur Vihar FC
The fifth match of Game Week 7 was played between Young Boys of Chanakyapuri (BHC) and FC Mayur Vihar. This was an ideal opportunity for both lower-placed teams to reignite the winning spirit. The match kicked off and Young Boys of Chanakyapuri had the early possession, they forced the first corner of the game in the 3d minute and first off target shot in the 8th minute with Chris Williams trying his luck.
Mayur Vihar mid-fielders Sohan Rauthan, Vivek Singh, and Anoop Kumar were showing dexterity and coordination among each other but were not getting enough space to carry the ball past the midfield. BHC’s forward James Grace made an incredible run in the 17th minute which fetched them another chance at goal.
A majority of the first half was played in the midfield area, which could be gauged from the fact that there was only one strike on target which came in the 27th minute from the foot of Alex Swain, who moved well throughout the half but failed to make a reverberating impact. No modification in the scoreline till the half hour mark.
Halftime: BHC 0 – 0 FC Mayur Vihar
The second half started and in a contrast with the first half Mayur Vihar FC made a fast start, Leftback Rajat Pillai and captain Anoop SP were trying to cut their way into midfield, but a goal scoring movement was unseen. James Grace received a shooting opportunity in initial phase but his frail finish did not trouble the Mayur Vihar Goalkeeper Anish Unni.
The match was heading towards a draw but a brilliant header by Chris Williams in the 48th minute gave BHC the lead! From here on, BHC upped their game and scored their second goal just a few minutes later by virtue of Stan's assist and Swain's delicate finish, 2-0 BHC.
Young Boys Of Chanakyapuri sealed the deal in the 57th-minute when Stan delivered a long ball and set up James Grace for a one on one situation with the Goalkeeper, James hoodwinked the keeper and with that BHC's lead extended to 3-0. And so 9 minutes of sheer dominance gave BHC their first win of the season.
Fulltime: BHC 3 – 0 FC Mayur Vihar
