Surjakanta scored what proved to be the most valuable goal of the tournament so far as his late strike earned Konsham FC a vital 1-0 victory over resilient Vengnuam United Sporting to enter the quarter-finals at the expense of VENUS while heavyweights SYMROPIA FC and FC Zion played out a 1-1 draw – a result that confirmed quarter-finals entry for both sides with the former as Group champions and the latter a runners-up in today thrilling group-stage encounters of the ongoing 1st Pi Niangzen Trophy 2019 played at Lamka Public Ground, Churachandpur.


In today’s highly crucial first match between VENUS and Konsham FC, both sides struggled to adapt well in the first-half with chances were few and genuine goal-scoring opportunities were rare as the opening interval of the match ended goalless. Knowing that a draw will send them through to the next round as group winners, VENUS approached the second-half with a cautious note while knowing that a result other than a win will send them out of the tournament, Konsham FC threw everything forward with the start of the second period as they went close to scoring at several intervals but youthful VENUS also caused constant hazard to the Konsham FC defence all afternoon with a series of penetrative counter-attack and as it appeared like the match would eventually end in a draw, prolific striker Surjakanta(17) came to the rescue for Konsham FC as the NEROCA hitman struck in the winner with a well-taken volley collecting a distant cross from Ronald (12) 5 minutes from the end of normal time.

The result elevated Konsham FC into the quarter-finals as Group A winners while VENUS were left shell-shocked for their agonizing defeat right at the death despite producing some fine results earlier in the tournament.


In a high-profile second match of the matchday fixture, both SYMROPIA FC, who are already qualified for the Last – 8 and FC Zion, who were needing a draw to go through, fielded their strongest line-up to overcome opponents and despite both sides playing high-pressing game, the first-half failed to produce goal. The second-half saw both sides revamping attack and soon FC Zion went in front when Johnty(3) headed in a corner in the 52nd minute but the joy of FC Zion was short-lived as SYMROPIA FC got the equalizer in the 56th-minute courtesy of a 35-yards looping strike from midfielder Seiboi Haokip(7) and with both sides failing to add further goal, the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

The result confirmed SYMROPIA FC as Group B winners while FC Zion finished the Group as runners-up.
