Birtamode, Feb. 25 -- Star-studded Machhindra Club edged past Three Star Club 1-0 to lift the Satashi Gold Cup title in Jhiljhile, Jhapa on Sunday. It was their second title in a week.

A third-minute penalty goal from national team forward Bimal Gharti Magar was enough for Machhindra to clinch their maiden knockout title. Last Saturday, they won the Martyrs Memorial 'A' Division League.

Machhindra were awarded a penalty after Nigerian forward Adelaja Somide was brought down by Three Star defender Ashok Khawas inside the area. Gharti Magar made no mistake from the spot to give Machhindra the lead. They threatened yet again in the ninth minute but goalie Purna Chemjong denied a Bishal Rai 'B' header.
