QUETTA: Baloch Club and Quetta Zorawar entered the semi-final during the Ufone Football Cup on Sunday. The two teams made tooth and nail efforts to reach the semi-final.

Baloch Club Quetta faced DFA Khuzdar in the first Super 8 match of the tournament at Ayub Stadium Quetta. Baloch Club’s aggressive demeanor became evident when its player Kamran scored a goal only in the 10th minute of the match. Baloch Club then took just 11 minutes to solidify its hold on the match when Zahid scored the second goal for its team in the 21st minute of the match.

The team dominated DFA Khuzdar all along when Kamran returned for another sensational goal in the 40th minute of the match to put his team in a commanding position. DFA Khuzdar’s attempts to make a comeback seemed to materialize when its player Jalil scored in the 44th minute of the match but the team couldn’t go all the way and lost the match to Baloch Club by 3-1.

In the second match, DFA Panjgur took on Quetta Zorawar Club at the same venue. The two teams in impeccable form and spirit presented exemplary games and entertained the crowd. Both teams launched ferocious attacks as well as valiantly defended their respective goalposts. Quetta Zorawar Club’s Ali Raza successfully sent the ball whizzing through the opposition’s net to send the packed stadium into a frenzy. DFA Panjgur having been reduced to the challenger position attempted to revert strongly but fell short to lose match 1 against naught.

The next two Super 8 matches will be played today (Monday 22nd Nov) at Ayub Stadium between Muslim Club Chaman and DFA Turbat at 1 PM and DFA Quetta United and DFA Zhob at 3 PM respectively.
