Internet Desk: The battle of I-League heats up once again as Manipur's chase to write its name on the history books continue, as Neroca FC registers yet another crucial victory to put the continuous pressure on Minerva and East Bengal.

An 86th-minute match-winner from Aryn Williams sealed a 1-0 win for Neroca over Churchill Brothers in an entertaining affair at the Kuman Lampak Stadium in Imphal on Wednesday.

If not for the determined James Kithan in goal, Neroca could have scored in the second minute of the game. Tondonba's cross into the box was headed at goal by Aryn Williams from close-range but the goalkeeper extended his fists to parry the ball away.

Just as the match looked like it was destined to end in a stalemate, Williams struck the winning blow in the 86th minute. The midfielder, who had missed multiple chances to score up until then, chested down Saran Singh's long ball and struck hard into the net to clinch three points for his side.

Williams strike helps Neroca to the top of the I-League table, albeit temporarily. They are two points above Minerva Punjab having played 16 games.
