Wahingdoh were left with ten players after skipper Rheadolf Nongneng was sent off in the second half. Meanwhile, Mawkhar’s Semion Mylliemngap brought down the deficit with a 37th minute strike that saw the match hanging in the balance. However, Royal Wahingdoh held on to what turned out to be a narrow win.
