Disappointing Day for Simorgh and Toofan

17 Sep, 2015

Toofan Harirod defeats Simorgh Alborz 3-2 but misses their chance to secure their place in the 2015 RAPL semifinals.

Today's game paved the way for De Maiwand Atalan to follow Shaheen Asmayee's lead and be the second team from Group B advancing on to the semifinals.

Toofan's Rahmatullah Khairkhwa secured the first goal for his side at 25th minute mark of the game. He scored again at 31st minute of the game to double Toofan's lead.

The only efforts in the first half made by Simorgh were in the opening minutes and they struggled to challenge Toofan for the rest of the first half. They lacked the coordination to keep their defensive line intact and their attack suffered as well.

Simogh's Muneralhaq Nadim scored the first goal for his side with a powerful strike at 52nd minute mark. He made another close effort, but only hit the goal's crossbar at 56th minute.
The game picked up momentum and pace after Simorgh's first goal.

Toofan's goalie Mohammad Yama Yahyazada was shown a red card at 80th minute and left a 10-men Toofan team to compete in the last 10 minutes of the game.

Toofan's Ghulam Yaqoobi scored the third goal for his side at 87th minute. Simorgh's Nadim also scored another goal at 89th minute to end the action for today.

Today's victory for Toofan isn't enough to take them on to the semifinals. Because, their goal difference in the group stage ended up at minus two.

All of the group stage matches will start at 3:30 pm this season. The matches will broadcast live on TOLO TV, Lemar TV, Arman FM and Arakozai FM.  It will also be watchable on the RAPL YouTube page (www.youtube.com/afghanpremierleague).
