Newcomer in the BoB Bhutan Premier League (BPL) started their season with a good start after drawing Transport United FC, 1-1.

The game yesterday at Changlimithang stadium saw two quick goals in the first quarter, but disappointed those watching online when the next three quarters ended goalless.

Transport United FC’s Tsenda Dorji scored in the sixth minute. However, the lead was short-lived. The opponent responded with an equaliser through Ngawang Tobgay after seven minutes. Despite several attempts from Transport, the team from the Royal Bhutan Army defended well.

Meanwhile, in the opening match of the BPL season on Saturday, Paro FC thrashed Druk Stars FC at the Woochu Sports Arena in Paro  8-0.

The first half of the game ended with a 5-0 drubbing of Druk Stars. With nine minutes into the game, mid-fielder Loday Wangchuk opened the flood gates with a long-distance goal.

Striker Chencho Gyeltshen popularly known as CG7 scored four goals. Yeshi Dorji, Tsheltrim and Phub Thinley were also on the score sheet.

CG7 expressed his joy on social media. “Finally BPL has started and nothing can express the happiness after so long. Let’s keep going strong and thank you to my teammates.”

Paro FC stated in its official Facebook page that unlike the previous two seasons, the club won the opening match this time. Paro FC will host Transport United FC on August 8 in Paro.

Thimphu City FC will play Paro United FC tomorrow at the Changlimithang stadium.
