Minerva Punjab, Lajong share spoils in exciting encounter
Shillong: Champions Minerva Punjab were on Friday held to a 2-2 draw away at Shillongs JLN Stadium by a young and exciting Shillong Lajong FC.
Ghanaian frontman William Opoku and Nigerian midfielder Philip Njoku scored for the champions while Buam and Allen Nongbri got on the scoresheet for the hosts.
Both the gaffers Alison Kharyntiew and Minerva's Irish coach Paul Munster made quite a few changes to the starting eleven for this game.
Alison made five changes and Paul three as both coaches opted for a change in goalkeepers. Neithovilie Chalieu was back in the Shillong goal after Alison's brief flirtation with Purbha Lachempa while Arshdeep Singh made the first start in the Minerva goal replacing Bhaskar Roy. IANS
