Shillong, April 2: Eastern Sporting Union (ESU) registered their fourth consecutive victory with a 2-0 triumph over Gokulam Kerala FC in the Indian Womens League (IWL) football tourment at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Monday.
Mandakini opened the scoring in the first half with her strike in the 24th minute before Kamala Devi doubled the lead after the break in the 50th minute. The win took ESU to 12 points from four matches.

A serious injury to ocha in the 42nd minute made her leave the field on a stretcher as the half ended 1-0 in ESU’s favour.
The second half saw ESU doubling their lead as Kamala Devi struck in the 50th minute. Her curling left footer made it 2-0 for the reigning champions.
ESU will next face KRYHPSA on April 6 while Gokulam will square off against India Rush SC on April 6. IANS
