National Games: Manipur humiliates Tripura 24-0 in women's football

Women's football matches kicked off at the 34th National Games with Manipur thrashing Tripura 24-0 in a Group B encounter at the JRD Tata Sports complex here today.

Earlier, the women's football matches, which were suspended over the entry of Tripura team, resumed today after the All India Football Federation (AIFF) gave a green signal to Tripura's participation "in the larger interest of sports".

Tripura was no match for last edition's runner's up Manipur. Manipur surged ahead through P H Beena Devi's second minute goal shortly into the match.

Altogether Beena Devi and S Reenaroy Devi scored six goals each while Mandakini Devi scored a hat-trick among other scorers.
