The well-packed audience at Brig M Thomas ground was visibly inspired to witness a female medic as they cheered aloud every time Sagolband United female medic rushed to an injured player for first aid in a group D encounter between the MSL team and Taphou Football Club in the second match on Friday.

The MSL team Sagolband United and Taphou Football Club played their second pre-quarter-final league match after both teams had a draw in their first respective match.

Normally, only male medics from the local clubs were seen in any football tournament played so far at the Brig. M. Thomas ground. Thanks to Sagolband United for presenting female medics for the first time which would definitely motivate the local clubs to recruit female medics and would also set a good example of woman empowerment.

The MSL team had a hard time breaking the tough defense of the Taphou Football Club till Vami Longvah found a brilliant opener in the 38th minute to seal the first half 1-0.

Taphou Football Club made a comeback in the second half with multiple on-target goals from its strikers but Sagolband United's custodian was brilliant enough to keep them at bay.

Taking advantage of the exhausted Taphou FC players, the MSL team pushed forward with more pressure to find another goal in the 60th minute through Shunjanthan to lock the game 2-0.
