I-League: Minerva Punjab and Shillong Lajong share spoils in exciting encounter

Opoku was again in the clear when Jagpreet put him through inside the box with a deft lob over the defenders, but his strike could not avoid the body of defenders in front and went wide again. At the stroke of halftime, Minerva pulled one back when in the second minute of added time, Edafe chased a long ball from just inside the Shillong half, into their box and went past Neitho. With the goal unguarded, Edafe passed the ball to a more centrally located Opoku inside the box, whose powerful strike went in after hitting a diving Neitho and a Lajong defender on the way. However a minute later, Bala Dahir had to be called back as it was clear the Minerva management had miscalculated and were playing with six foreigners on the pitch, instead of the allowed five.
