Abor Ao pound Gidum FC in Solung football tourney

CHIMPU, Aug 12: Abor Ao FC (AAFC) pounded Gidum FC 5-1 in a group match in the Itanagar Solung Football Tournament at the AAPBn ground here on Monday.
AAFC, having lost their first match against the formidable Naharlagun Solung FC, started the game on a cautious note.
The team did not lose its sheen due to the absence of their star player SP John Pada as Ignatius Padung inspired Abor Ao by scoring four goals in the 31st, 47th, 56th and 90+4 minutes.
Samar Padung also scored a goal in the 85th minute for Abor Ao. The consolation goal for Gidum FC was scored by Tom Lomtung.
Earlier, Gebang FC defeated Narmi FC 4-2 in a keenly contested match.
Dukom Tasing put Gebang FC ahead by scoring in the 9th minute of the play. Obang Jamoh doubled the lead within two minutes, and Bakin Tamut netted the third goal in the 22nd minute, piling up the misery on Narmi FC.
Stung by the early three goals, Narmi FC regrouped and intensified attack around the rival’s half and, in the process, the team scored two goals within the first half to reduce the margin to 2-3.
Both the teams started the second half on an attacking note, but it was Gebang FC which laughed the last laugh as Kiddong Gamoh scored the fourth goal to seal the victory (4-2).
