Jawalakhel defeats Friends Club to reclaim the lead

Kathmandu, With a convincing 4-1 victory over Friends Club on Thursday in the Martyr's Memorial A Division League 2023, Jawalakhel Youth Club reclaimed first place.

Nkoto Synous Masoabi scored three goals for Jawalakhel in the game at Chyasal Stadium, while goals from Fode Fofana and Rahul Rahul also contributed to their victory.

In the 21st minute, Rahul gave Jawalakhel the lead before Masoabi doubled it six minutes later. In the 64th minute, Masoabi scored his second penalty kick goal, giving his team a 2-0 halftime lead. After Shyam Babu Kyapchhki scored a goal to tie the score, any hope of a comeback was all but gone when Fode Fofana, a substitute, scored in the second minute of extra time.

With the victory, Jawalakhel now has 30 points after playing one more game than Church Boys United. When the Church Boys play Tribhuvan Army Football Club in the afternoon game on May 13 at Dasharath Stadium, they can regain their point advantage.
