The 9th Karachi United Football League 2011-12, organised by the Karachi Football Foundation and sponsored by UBL OMNI, saw the result of an intriguing match at Korangi Baloch Stadium in Sharafi, Karachi yesterday 31 October 2011.
Three-time KUFL champions Shazad Mohammadan (Malir) – winners in 2007, 2008, and 2009 – were left cursing their strikers’ poor finishing against last year’s KUFL runners-up Mauripur Baloch as both teams ended all-square with a 0-0 draw in their Group ‘A’ clash.
Against a rather youthful Mauripur Baloch side, Shazad Mohammadan strikers Muhammad Baloch, Muhammad Asghar, Adil Khan, and Shahnawaz showed great play between them as they stretched the opposing defence thin, but miserably failed to find the target. Likewise for Mauripur Baloch, as their strikers Majid Rasheed, Abdul Wahab, M Hanif, and Salal Razzaq also created a few chances at the other end but failed to find the target. At the end, both sides ended up with 1 point each.
Before the game, chief guest Mr Abdul Manan (ex-Chairman DFA East) met both sides. Referees were Iqrar Hussain, M Umar, and Abdul Latif, while match commissioner was Abdul Karim. On Wednesday, 2 November 2011, Korangi Baloch face Gulshan Soccer at their home field in Sharafi.
