Imphal (Manipur) India December 9: In their I-League 2022-23 match at the Khuman Lampak Stadium in Imphal, Tiddim Road Athletic United (TRAU) FC came out on top, beating RoundGlass Punjab FC 2-0 on Thursday.The result put the visitors unbeaten start to the season by failing to find the net for the first time this season.The first half started off on a quiet note, with no big chances created early on and the teams attempting to find their grooves.All that changed in the 25th minute when Samte curled home a spectacular free-kick.

From the resulting set piece, the TRAU left fullback fired his shot into the top corner to give his team the lead.The hosts then preferred to sit back in their half and worry mostly through counter-attacks, allowing them to pass the ball and build out from the back.The scheme almost paid off in the 38th minute when Baoringdao Bodo broke into the penalty box, but Freddy Lallawmawma blocked his shot at the last minute.Punjabs' counter-attacking options were mostly limited to crosses and shots from a long distance, according to RoundGlass.

In extra time, Bishorjit flung himself to save a free-kick by Juan Mera.Despite his best efforts, Daniel Lalhlimpuia's rebound fell to him, who was mis-hit and Deepak Devrani could not get the finishing touch.At halftime, the scoreline read 1-0 in favor of TRAU.The home team nearly doubled their lead just four minutes into the second half, but Bodo couldn't keep his shot on target after being pulled out of a low cross by Johnson.

The Punjab team continued to dominate possession, but found it difficult to make any meaningful inroads into the rival defence.In the 64th minute, Maheson had another go at scoring from outside the box, and Bishorjit took it without incident.On the other end of the field, Bodo hit the end of a low cross but made a mess of the finish.Mera's free-kick was palmed away for a corner by Bishorjit in the 85th minute as the match came to a close.
