CALCUTTA FOOTBALL LEAGUE: EAST BENGAL 3-0 RAILWAYS FC
Red and Gold side remains at the top of the league table after beating Railway FC 3-0 in the 5th round clash of Calcutta Football League Premier Division A played at East Bengal Ground.
Khalid Jamil boys took the lead early in the third minute. Debutant Joby Justin made a brilliant run inside the box before taking the shot that went straight into the net past Railway custodian Sudipta Banerjee.
At twelve minute Brandon almost doubled the lead for Red and Gold but his shot came off the post. The flurry of attack and chance created by East Bengal, however, could not increase the lead at the end of the first session.
Second half was no different for the home side as they continued the series of attack on Railway and Al Amna playing a crucial role in the midfield.
East Bengal got the second through VP Suhair who received the rebound from the post on Joby´s back heel attempt from Samad Ali´s right wing cross. Suhair was at the right position to tap the ball into the net with ease in the 68th minute.
VP Suhair found his second of the match in the 82nd minute when he received Laldanmawia Ralte´s left wing cross and made no mistake in tapping the ball in to make the score line 3-0 for East Bengal.
Railway FC was nowhere in the game this afternoon and all the goals for East Bengal come from Indian strikers.
