SHILLONG: Royal Wahingdoh ensured entry into the final round of the Under 16 Youth League finals as they beat Shillong Lajong by 2 goals. Phrangki Buam put the hosts up by the 3rd minute and another strike by Santosh Singh in the 11th minute was enough for the Royals to get the win.
Lajong tried to come back harder in the second half, but the Royal Wahingdoh defence stood strong as they thwarted any attempts by the visitors.
The club has once against qualified for the finals from the Shillong-Guwahati zone and an ecstatic coach Bobby Nongbet was all praise for the young team.
