Kohima Komets Football Club 1 : 0 Imphal East Football Association

Kohima Komets Football Club 1 : 0 Imphal East Football Association

Kohima Komets FC went up against the formidable Imphal East Football Association in the first quarter final. In the end, a deserved goal from the spot by Kivi Sumi was enou

gh in a well contested and hard-fought match.

Kohima Komets FC had a shaky start as we took time to settle down, Imphal East dominated the proceedings for the first 15 minutes but were unable to penetrate our defense. Their wild shots were wayward and our keeper James didnt make a single dive in the entire first half. Slowly Azo and Guli started to control the midfield and around the 20th minute, we really started to shoot some probing balls for goals. Kezhose missed a chance and Kivi missed two good chances including a powerful header which went off target after being assited by Ating and Azo within the next few minutes. Christopher would have two good shots, one an excellent free kick which went just wide over the cross bar, in the 36th and 38 minute. A combination from Christopher, Azo and Matthew also went missing. Azo would sent one just inches wide of the post as the first half came to a close. Imphal East played good football and their movement, passing and defending was excellent. 

Their excellent play will continue into the second half as it as tough going for both the teams. James had to work a bit harder in the second half making some excellent interception and plucking the ball from crosses. We pushed and prodded and pressed but would not find the finish we desired. A good solo effort by Kivi around the 55th minute and our midfield duo of Azo and Guli's chances whent missing too. After a bad foul on Matthew in the 58th minute, Christopher send a cross into the D Box and a double strike from Ating couldn'd find the back of the net. A ball from Azo send Kivi down the flank, who send a cross, just a finger touch from their keeper managed to push the ball behind Matthew. The next minute, Kornan received a yellow card for a bad foul down our left flank. Kornan made ammends by clearing out the ball which came in from the cross. Kivi was obstrusted in the 62nd minute inside the D-Box. Had he not being caught, he was clear on goal. The referee blew the whistle, and Kivi took the penalty and scored the only goal of the match. Ating also took his chances down the right flank. Kivi would hit the side netting and we were looking more dangerous with Azo, Kezhose also looking dangerous, but we could not increase the score. Jetlee would replace Ating late into the match. Inspite of some good play, game control, and passing, Imphal East could not find a way past our defense and resorted to long range which hardly bothered James or our defense. In their best chance in the entire game, following a corner in the 82nd minute, Imphal East's Ramkumar shot found its way in through the bodies inside the D Box only to agonisingly hit the post, the follow up shot would also go out. The second half ended with KKFC 1 : 0 Imphal East, and it had all the drama, tension, excitement, joy and heartbreak of a great game.

More than a celebration of Kohima Komets FC hard fought win, it was a celebration of football as both teams displayed great skill and tenacity, control and ability on and off the ball, with strong defending, and good midfield play. This is one of the most memorable and remarkable match that we have played against any opponent.

The next match will be between TRAU, Manipur and Nagaland Police on the 22nd at 1:30 PM at Kohima Local Ground.

Local Derby – New Market FC hosts Kohima Komets FC – 23rd June 2012

 

The rains pour incessantly in Kohima, but the weather has so far been generous. May the God’s bless us with a light drizzle before the match starts and as the match starts hopefully there will be no rain, our grounds can turn out to be a player’s worst enemy.

 

New Market FC are yet to win a game, however as compared to their first half of the season performance, their second half of the season has been a major improvement, gone are the days when they conceded goals and couldn’t score. They have proven to be tough opponents and have lost most of their games by a solitary goal. They lost their last game against Sangpang FC by 2 goals to 1.

 

Kohima Komets FC are in the worst phase of their life, they have been unable to find the net in their last 5 outings now. They lost to Doyang FC by a single goal as Komets strikers couldn’t convert the opportunities despite of getting some good chances. As a result of their bad performances since the start of the second half of the season, Komets have been steadily losing ground and have slipped to 8th place.

 

New Market FC (10) and Kohima Komets FC (8) will both look to win this local derby. With Komets on their worst losing streak, a win will help up cheer our club. While New Market FC have been consistently scoring against top teams like Tornadoes and Life Sports, Kohima Komets FC look lifeless in front of the goal.

 

Their Last match ended in a 4-0 win for Kohima Komets with Kobu scoring his hat-trick and Akum chipping in with a goal. It was a one sided affair, and New Market FC will be looking for their first win of the season.

 

Stats:
Kohima Komets FC 4 – 0 New Market FC
Kobu (KKFC) – 3
Akum (KKFC) – 1

Hot, sweltering sun and Doyang FC awaits Kohima Komets FC – 16/06/2012

 

It certainly is hot during the summer at Dimapur and Komets will have a tough break when they visit Doyang FC for their next match at Dimapur. Close in rankings and points at 6th  and 7th with 14 points each, with similar goal difference of -2, Doyang are ahead by virtue of goals scored. Both these teams will try to win to climb to the upper side of the table.

Doyang FC comes into this match with a very strong win over New Market FC as they battled from a goal down to go on and win the match. Monu of NMFC scored within the 9th minute, but Doyang managed to equalize in the 19th minute through Petrong and went on to win in the 52nd minute via William’s goal, making them rise to 6th position.

Kohima Komets FC visited Dimapur United which ended as Komets walked out awarding Dimapur United 3 points and a 3 goal advantage. Dimapur United was leading through a goal by Amir and the match looked like a keenly contested match even though Komet’s strikers were not on target again. In the 30th minute, the referee from the center circle awarded a penalty and red-card to Dezesengulie, without consulting the lines man who had told other Komets players that it was not a hand ball, as he was in a much better position. The ball had hit the defenders hand, and the defenders hand was close to his body. There was nothing deliberate as the defender did not go for the ball with his hand. This red card and penalty led the Komets custodian to appeal and the match referee threatened the keeper with a red card, which provoked the keeper Alemse into pushing the referee and promptly received a red card as well. The referee then took off his watch in an aggressive manner as the bystanders intervened to stop the escalating tension. Kohima Komets FC, fearing for the safety of their players, and losing complete faith in the Referee, decided to walk out of the match awarding Dimapur United 3 points and 3 goals.

In further statements, Kohima Komets have publicly apologized for the walk-over in their Facebook Groups and have sent apology letters to the Nagaland Football Referee association (NFRA), the Dimapur Referee Association, however, they were unable to apologize to the concerned referee because neither NPL nor NFRA would reveal the match referee’s name to KKFC. KKFC also apologized to the NPL for their behaviour on the ground and took up concerns regarding the match. KKFC have also fined Alemse, his monthly wages and other sanctions as seen fit for his unruly behaivour.

NPL on the other hand has slapped a further 2 game ban on Alemse, Keeper KKFC, for his unsportmanslike character as well as a strict warning letter to Kohima Komets Football Club.

It may also be noted that the Match which was supposed to start at 3:00 PM started at 4:45 PM because of the delay by the first teams on which the NPL claimed “TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES”. The team were present, there was a ground, the referees were present, and any other preliminaries should have been done by Friday or at-least before Noon Saturday.
