Kathmandu – New Road Team – NRT’s forward Jenish Prajapati scored his maiden goal in the top-tier league, helping his team secure their first win of the Martyr’s Memorial ‘A’ Division League 2023 at the ANFA Complex on Sunday.
Raju Kaji Shakya’s side came from a goal behind to defeat Himalayan Sherpa 2-1. Khamir Gilsan Kandangwa scored the opener for the mountainers in the 14th minute.
