through Jitendra Singh (19th minute) Nongdamba Naorem (86th) and Rahul Kannoly (90+1) to walk away with full three points at the Amebedkar Stadium to bounce back from their three successive losses The Arrows the youngest side in the I-League played the final half an hour with one-man advantage after Lajong’s F Lalrohlua was sent off for his second bookable offence in the 60th minute Naorem’s 86th minute strike was easily the goal of the season so far as he cut in from the left channel and dodged past six Lajong players before slotting the ball past an onrushing goalie into the net Naorem had come into the match as a substitute in the 75th minute This was Arrow’s second win in five matches and they are now at sixth spot with six points After beginning their campaign with a 3-0 win over

foreign players while Lajong fielded their full quota of five players from abroad The midfield trio of Jeakson Singh Thounaojam Amarjit and Suresh Singh proved too hot to handle for the Lajong defence

opponents to close in on them As was shown during the U-17 World Cup the Arrows players were impeccable in their organisation also Arrow’s goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh was called for action just thrice in

defender Jitendra Singh burst onto the scene from a throw-in and netted the ball home to give the Arrow’s the lead In the second half Lajong tried to come back into the match and pressed for the equaliser but nothing much happenned for them as Jitendra and Anwar Ali marshalled the Arrows’ defence nicely In the 60th minute Lajong were reduced to ten men after Lalrohlua was given his marching order by the referee for a rash tackle on Ninthoinganba Indian Arrows made their first substitution of the match as Abhishek Halder replaced Jeakson in the midfield in the 70th minute Naorem came on
