TRAU FC continued their fine form in the final round of the I-League second division as they defeated Ozone FC at the Bangalore Football Stadium on Wednesday.
East Bengal loanee Yami Longvah (8, 12’) netted a brace to seal a comfortable 2-0 win for the Manipuri club over the Bengaluru-based side.
Longvah, who had played in four matches for the Red and Golds in the I-League 2018-19 season, moved on loan to his hometown club in the second division during the January transfer window.
Under the tutelage of Laishram Ibomcha Singh, TRAU has been in scintillating form in the second division I-League this season. They had qualified from a very tough Group C, which consisted of Mohammedan Sporting, ATK reserves and JamshedpurFC reserves.
Their journey in the final round has been near perfect so far. They won their opening fixture against Chhinga Veng FC 3-1 followed by a 4-1 win over LoneStar Kashmir FC. Today’s victory takes them a step closer to the finals.
Ozone, on the other hand, have thoroughly underperformed. They have managed to win just one game out of the three they have played.
TRAU next face LoneStar Kashmir on May 12 while Ozone are up against Chhinga Veng in a must-win clash on May 15.
