The 1st day of the NPL 2013 saw only a handful of football fans at the stands when the Opening Ceremony started but by the time the players shook hands, the crowd was slowly building up. The moment the referee blew the whistle, it was game on for both the teams. Zonipang FC controlled the ball at the starting minutes but that's when KKSC settled down into their game plan and through Sanyem took the lead who scored the opening goal of the tournament at 6' 37". The match continued on with both team pressuring each other corners, by 16' 56" KKSC winger Kivi Sumi found the net and made the scoreline 2-0. Zonipang FC put a good effort and came real close to leveling the score a couple of times within the danger zone. Then came the "FOG".....the match became almost impossible to watch because of the poor visibility, even the linesmen had to run inside the pitch to make accurate decisions. A couple of fans were overheard who were jokingly saying that football in Kohima should not be called Football but Fogball. By the middle of the first half, KKSC found another goal and this time through The Classic Cup top scorer Yhunshalo Kemp at 28' 28". Then Captain Ating came close to scoring when he lobbed the ball over the keeper only to hit the far post. With that the 1st half came to an end. 2nd half was evenly contested and both team came close to scoring numerous times. The final whistle blew with a scoreline of 3-0 in favor of KKSC and thus starting the NPL season with a win. The next KKSC match will take place at DDSC, Dimapur on the 25th of Sept 2013 against Dimapur United FC. Be there!
