SSB Football Club defeated Panjim Footballers 6-2 to inch closer to qualify for the semi-finals of the Indian Women’s League at the Guru Nanak Stadium. Ranjita Devi, Sumila Chanu, and Sangita Basfore scored a brace each for SSB, while Karishma Shirvoikar netted two for Panjim on Wednesday evening.Much like their previous games, Panjim broke the deadlock early on against the run of play when Karishma finished a swift move to put them in the lead. However, once SSB settled into the game, there was no looking back for the side from West Bengal.
India international Sangita Basfore equalised for SSB, as they went on to dominate the game for the rest of the half.The second half had a completely different story. SSB came out with intent and opened the proverbial floodgates a little after 10 minutes of the restart. Sumila Chanu and Sangita Basfore struck in quick succession.Sumila scored again, a few minutes later as she dribbled past two defenders inside the box and slotted it into the bottom corner. Ranjita Chanu added a fifth for SSB when she nodded in a corner from close range.With a little under 10 minutes to go, Ranjita scored again, this time from a melee inside the penalty area, before Karishma added a consolation goal for Panjim in the dying seconds of the game.
