The defending champions of Club Maldives Cup, the Greater Male Industrial Zone Limited (GMIZL), makes a good start to the tournament with a dramatic win, 2-1. Rihaam Abdul Ghanee (Bobby) scored the winning goal for them as the last action of the match.
GMIZL took the lead with a goal from Ibrahim Rimah (Rimey) just fifteen seconds into the second half. It was set by a cut cross from Bobby, which created an open goal for Rimey only to tap the ball into the goal net.
Stelco Recreation Club (Stelco RC) equalized ten minutes after, with a great technical play from Ayaz Ahmed (Ayaa).
GMIZL’s winner came as the last action of the match, following a foul to Hussain Shareef (Only). Only set the free kick to Bobby, who beautifully placed the ball to the near corner, which indeed served as an appetizer for the defending champions.
Dhivehi Sifainge Club (DSC) won the second match of the night 5-2, easily against Thauleemee Gulhun. Thauleemee Gulhun took the lead in the third minute with a goal from Azzam Ali Didi (Azzam).
DSC came back to make it 2-1 with goals from Ibrahim Ahmed and Nadheef Ibrahim, on the 10th and 11th minute of the match.
Raufath Aboobakuru of Thauleemee Gulhun equalized with a wonderful bicycle kick to the top corner. That must be a contender for the most amazing goal of the tournament.
Ibrahim Rasheed, Mohamed Anwar and Mohamed Rasheed scored DSC’s winning goals on the second half of the match.
