2nd Div I-League: Babatunde guides Royals to second win

SHILLONG: Royal Wahingdoh earned their second straight win in the Second Division I-League in Aizawl thanks to a first half double strike by Babatunde on Saturday. Wahingdoh beat United Sikkim a 3-2 win.

Wahingdoh took an 18th minute lead after Bekay sent in a cross that allowed a Babatunde tap-in into the nest. Later in the 40th minute, Wahingdoh were awarded a penalty which was converted by Bekay for a 2-0 lead. However, United Sikkim struck back with a goal from Jeh Williamson to set his side back on track. Just as the match seemed evenly poised, Babatunde collected a Jackichand rebound before finishing it off with a shot past the keeper, taking Wahingdoh into half time with a 3-1 lead. Sikkim’s S Ansari added one more goal for Sikkim in the 71st minute but it was not enough to change his side’s fortunes.
