Zain Scores Twice As Eagles Edge past Green Streets
Club Eagles defeated Green Streets 3-2 in the Dhivehi Premier League clash tonight.
Club Green Streets took the early lead through Avila Hernandez chipping the young goalkeeper Hassan Aleef just four minutes into the game. Zain Zafar equalised sixteen minutes into the game and Eagles dominated much of the first half.
Zain doubled Eagles lead sixteen minutes into the second half beating a couple of Green Streets defenders with ease. Hassan Raaif scored Eagles third goal a minute later with a rare mistake from goalkeeper Saqib Haneef. Green Streets pushed for a goal with Eagles just as dangerous, Saaif came close when his header bounced off the cross bar. Deep into stoppage time Saaif gave Green Streets a second goal with a header again, which was credited with an own goal for goalkeeper Aleef.
Eagles are now level on points with League leaders Maziya while Green Streets remain in the drop zone.
