KATHMANDU, Aug 24: Ranipokhari Corner Team (RCT) made it two out of two wins after a 2-1 victory over Khumaltar Youth Club in the Martyrs Memorial B Division League football tournament played on Wednesday at APF football ground in Halchowk, Kathmandu.

Pukar Ale Magar broke the deadlock late in the match as he scored the first goal in the 78th minute and Bidhur Rijal sealed the victory in the 90th minute.

However, Khumaltar pulled back a consolation goal in the stoppage time as Suraj Raut achieved the target.
