Ranchi:

Mizoram pumped in five second half goals to thrash 10-man Assam 6-1 to clinch their maiden Junior Nationals Football Tournament title here on Sunday.

Both the sides were levelled 1-1 at the breather but a mistake by Assam custodian Jikil Basumatary led to his expulsion as the referee red-carded him at the stroke of half-time, turning the game on its head.

Mizoram overawed their opponents by capitalising on their one-man advantage and the second half turned out to be a lop-sided affair as they win their maiden title of the Under-17 tournament and bag the B C Roy Trophy.

Mawihmingthanga (three goals), Vanlalremkima (two) and Vanlabiaa Chhangte (one goal) found the target for Mizoram while Bhahma Jwngbla scored the lone goal for Assam.
