Motithang United FC beat Friends United FC 3-0 in the ongoing Thimphu league at Changlimithang Stadium yesterday.

With both teams taking a defensive approach to the game, the first half was limited to a very few off the target attempts. MUFC came strong in the second half with a purpose and their approach paid off in the 56th minute when Sabir Tamang scored. Buoyed by the early second half lead, MUFC pressed hard and were rewarded in the 63rd minute when Yeshi Samdrup doubled the lead.

There was no coming back for Friends United and in the dying minutes, Yeshi Samdrup killed the game with his neat finish double.

Yal FC will play Phensum FC tomorrow at Changlimithang Stadium.
