Sabina stars in Sethu FC win

Bangladesh women's team captain Sabina Khatun scored one and set up another as Sethu FC of Tamil Nadu beat Gokulam Kerala in their Indian Women's League encounter at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong yesterday.

The prolific striker, who played as a second-half substitute in her team's opening match 5-0 defeat against KRYHPSA, scored the opener in the 17th minute before setting up the second four minutes from time to bring the Tamil Nadu side back into the hunt.

After opening the account, Sabina almost scored another seven minutes past the half-hour mark but her shot was kept out by opposition goalkeeper Rumpa.

Manisha, who missed an earlier chance, made amends by getting on the receiving end of Sabina's pass in the 86th minute to score, handing Sethu a deserved victory.

Bangladesh's former under-16 captain Krishna Rani Sarkar is also playing for Sethu FC in this second edition of the Indian Women's League.
