Rising Student Club put on a dominant show against Indira Gandhi Academy for Sports and Education in a group stage match of the second edition of the Indian Women’s League at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong on Wednesday.

Rising Student Club maintained its grip throughout the match and braces from Pyari Xaxa, Anju Tamang and Sanju helped the club to an easy 6-1 win.

The Odisha-based club registered its first shot on goal in the first minute of the match to set the tone for the remainder of the match. Pyari Xaxa proved to be a threat for the opposition defence, leading the attack, and her header from inside the box in the ninth minute crashed into the back of the net to give Rising Student Club the lead.

Four minutes later, Pyari once again burst into the box and slipped the ball beneath the onrushing goalkeepers’ legs to double the lead. Anju Tamang tripled the advantage with a blasting shot in the 27th minute.

Rising Student Club continued its attacking vein in the second half. Sanju’s strike in the 50th minute made it 4-0 before Amsavalli Narayanan pulled one back for Indira Gandhi Academy, which turned out be a mere consolation.

Anju Tamnag and Sanju scored within the space of five minutes from the end to add more gloss to the scoreline.

RESULT:  Rising Student’s Club- 6 (Pyari Xaxa 9’, 13’; Anju Tamang 27’, 83’; Sanju 50’, 87’) bt Indira Gandhi Academy SE- 1 (Amsavalli 54’)
