APF advance as Group winners

Jan. 5, 2018 - Nepal International Sabitra Bhandari scored the only goal as Nepal APF Team defeated arch rival Nepal Army 1-0 in the ongoing 16th Women’s National Football League Championship 2074 being held at the ANFA Complex on Friday.

In a highly interesting fixture, Sabitra Bhandari scored the deciding goal in the 50th minute of the match. Bhandari fired a left volley beyond Army custodian Lila Lamgade's reach.

With today's goal, Bhandari took her personal tally to 21 goals.

 Meanwhile, Western earned a 2-0 win over Mid-Western Region in the first match of the day. Both goals were scored in the second half.

Western got a stroke of good fortune when Sama Karki scored in her own nets to gift Western the lead in the 61st minute. Suinta B.K later then added next to secure a 2-0 win for Mid-Western.

The win, however, was not enough to take both the teams through to the next stage.
