Bhubaneswar : Rising Student Club of Odisha defeated India Rush SC 2-0 in a group stage match of the second edition of the Hero Indian Women’s League at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong, Meghalaya on Sunday.

A Pyari Xaxa strike in the 37th minute and Jabamani Tudu’s 42nd minute header helped Rising Student Club to register an easy win over their opponents and grab three points from the fixture.

Although the match was slow to get off from the start, Rising Student Club, the more dominant team in the early minutes pressed and squeezed India Rush SC’s defence line. In the 26th minute, Sanju’s tap-in from a Pyari Xaxa cross ran into opposition defence as Rising Student upped the ante.

In the 37th minute, Pyari Xaxa’s rasping shot found the back of the net to give Rising Student Club a solitary goal lead. That lead was doubled five minutes after when Jabamani Tudu leaped higher than her defending marker and headed home from a corner kick to give Rising Student Club a comfortable position. The half-time scoreline read 2-0.

Changing over, Rising Student Club continued their attacking momentum and kept badgering at the India Rush SC goal. Dominating possession, Rising Student Club cajoled goal scoring opportunities but lack of being clinical infront of goal failed to add gloss to the scoreline. .
