Aha Rara Gold Cup : Jhapa XI defeat Lumbini 4-0

Gorkha Post




Jhapa XI stormed into the Aaha-Rara Gold Cup quarterfinals with a 4-0 drubbing of Lumbini FC at the Pokhara Stadium on Thursday.

It was a colossal setback for the high-flying Lumbini FC, who came in the competition after their shocking 1-0 triumph over household goliaths Nepal Police Club in the Red Bull National League in Kathmandu.

Karna Limbu, Bishal Rai  An and Yogesh Gurung scored a goal each for Jhapa, while an own goal added to Lumbini’s woe.

After a goalless draw in the first half, the game came into life when Limbu put Jhapa ahead in the 50th minute. Limbu caught up buddy Rai’s shot that bounced back off the Lumbini overseer Dillip Chhetry to tap in for the goal.

Rai multiplied the lead in the 66th minute, hammering home from close after Karna Limbu conveyed an impeccable ball from corner.

Jhapa coach Bhagirath Ale said his team was alert against the side who came into the tournament with a huge upset win over NPC.

“Overconfidence let the group down,” said Lumbini coachYam Prasad Gurung. “Our players took Jhapa softly on the once again of their late win over NPC and draw over Manang Marshyangdi Club (MMC) in the National League” conceded the Lumbini coach.

MMC will take on visiting  Kanchanjunga Football Club of India on Friday.
