East Bengal came back from a goal behind to secure a 2-1 victory over spirited Patha Chakra in the sixth round match of the 2017 Calcutta Football League Premier Division A on Thursday afternoon played at East Bengal Ground.
Patha Chakra took the lead in the 40th minute through Jagannath who was fitted a lovely ball by Jewel inside the box. Host East Bengal, however, brought in the parity seconds before the end of the first half. Pathachkara keeper fumbles the ball inside the box and Brandon position himself well to take the advantage to level the score at the break.
Patha Chakra fought well in the second half session as well and gave little chance to the mighty opponent to rule over them. However, Mahmoud Al Amna was brought down inside the box in the five minute before the regulation time and referee has no hesitation in pointing towards the spot kick. Amna took the kick himself and made no mistake and gave East Bengal 2-1 lead.
