RFDL: Sudeva Delhi edge out RFYC to book finals berth

Lotjem scored the sole goal of the match in a tight encounter.

Sudeva Delhi FC stormed into the finals of the Reliance Foundation Developmental League (RFDL) courtesy a 1-0 victory against the Reliance Foundation Young Champs (RFYC) tonight in Navi Mumbai. They will now lock horns with Bengaluru FC (BFC) at the Reliance Corporate Park (RCP) on May 14 in the grand finale of the second season of the RFDL.

The team from the national capital netted in the 67th minute as defender Chungkham Jackson pulled off a delicate chipped pass that forward Seilenthang Lotjem brought down with perfection and then put it past RFYC goalkeeper Ranit Sarkar to help the visiting side get a foot ahead in the proceedings.

Sudeva followed it up by tightening their backline and thwarting the waves of attacks that RFYC inflicted on them later on. The victory is significant as RFYC had cruised into the semi-finals unbeaten in both the regional qualifiers as well as in their National Group Stage matches.
