Churchill Brothers registered a stunning victory over league leaders Minerva Punjab FC as they won 2-1 in their Hero I-League encounter at the Tilak Maidan, Vasco on Friday (February 2, 2018). Back-to-back First-half goals from Koffi Mechac (17′) and Wayne Vaz (45′) put the Red Machines in an advantageous position before Minerva Punjab pulled one back through Kassim Aidara’s goal (57′).

In the 16th minute, the referee awarded a penalty at the other end for Churchill Brothers and Koffi Mechac drew the first blood much to the dismay of the travellers. Churchill midfielder Bektur Talgat lined up a shot from distance that deflected into the path of Koffi Mechac. Sukhdev Singh went into a tackle on the Cote D’Ivoire striker and the referee pointed straight to the spot. Minerva keeper Kiran Kumar Limbu napping who was well off his line and couldn’t react on time as Churchill led 2-0 going into half-time.

Minerva found a lifeline in the 57th minute when they won a free-kick down the left flank near the touchline. Chencho curled the free-kick into the box. The ball was not cleared away and fell kindly to Minerva skipper Kassim Aidara who slammed home to make it 2-1. They had a golden opportunity to level terms when Churchill conceded a penalty in the 61st minute. A Minerva corner saw Aidara knocked the ball back into the middle which caught Wayne Vaz’s hand.

A heroic performance by Neroca goalkeeper Bishorjit Singh helped the Manipuri side down Churchill Brothers 1-0. Felix Odili (22′) scored from the 12-yard penalty spot to register a much-needed victory after back-to-back defeats back at their home.

Pritam Singh made an immediate impact as he drew a double save from Churchill custodian James Kithan in the 8th minute. Neroca finally managed to find a breakthrough when Churchill Brothers’ fullback Wayne Vaz brought down Subash Singh in the box as the forward was racing down the left and the referee didn’t hesitate to award them a spot-kick in the 21st minute. Felix Odili stepped up and coolly steered the ball under the outstretched arms of Kithan as the visitors led 1-0 in the 22nd minute. Churchill Brothers had their first goal-scoring opportunity in the 44th minute.

Some slick interchanges of passes saw Koffi try to beat Neroca goalkeeper Bishorjit Singh at the farthest corner but missed by a whisker. Until the final whistle, Neroca hanged on to their slender lead to walking away with all three points to close the gap with leaders Minerva Punjab FC who are now 2 points ahead of Gift Raikhan’s boys having played two matches fewer.

A game that swayed between the two outfits until the final whistle, finally went to the hosts’ way handing the only Keralite side of Hero I-League 2017-18 their maiden win at their home, thanks to the 90th-minute winner from Arjun Jayaraj today (January 28, 2018).

Koffi took only 25 minutes to put Lajong in the driver’s seat and the visitors went into the changing room with the slender lead. More thrilling actions unfolded in the second half as not less than four goals were scored in the next 45 minutes.

Bahrainian Midfielder Alajmi restored the parity for the hosts in the 52nd minute before conceding another within 60 seconds as Lajong’s Korean Defender Zuho Oh headed Samuel’s freekick home. Gokulam made the most of Lajong’s defensive lapse as Kivi Zhimoni put the hosts back into the fight once again in the 74th minute.

Finally, Arjun Jayaraj’s stupendous effort put the hosts in the lead for the first time and they could maintain the lead to the final whistle to walk away with their first three-pointer at the home.

AIFF PRESS ELEASE : First-half goals by Saihou Jagne and Abdoulaye Koffi sealed a comfortable 2-0 win for Shillong Lajong against NEROCA at the Khuman Lampak Main Stadium on Wednesday (January 24, 2018). The loss brought NEROCA’s nine-game unbeaten run to an end.

Gift Raikhan reacted to the double blow by bringing on David Lalbiakzara in place of Ronald Singh in the 28th minute but NEROCA remained second-best as Lajong continued their forays forward. Jagne only needed to beat Mishtry to notch his brace at the half-hour mark but the custodian was quick to come off his line and collect the ball before the Gambian striker could launch a shot at goal.

Nedo Turkovic looked to have given the home side hope when he put the ball into the back of the net from a free-kick after the restart but the goal was disallowed as he was adjudged to have used his arm to guide the ball in.

Nidhin Lal landed awkwardly as he kept out Subash Singh’s effort in the 53rd minute but was back up on his feet in no time as Lajong displayed incredible fighting spirit to hold on to their two-goal lead.

Turkovic was able to get into the box from the right and square it into the path of Felix Chidi but the Nigerian striker shot went wide. Second-half substitute Sushil Singh failed to release the trigger after dancing his way past challenges and getting to the byline inside the box and his failure to get a shot allowed the Lajong defenders to heave sighs of relief.

Lajong’s spirit until the final whistle ended NEROCA’s incredible unbeaten run and handed them just their second defeat of the season.

Churchill Brothers inflicted a painful defeat on Indian Arrows as the Goan side won 2-0 in their Hero I-League encounter at the Tilak Maidan, Vasco tonight (January 22, 2018). It was the third straight win for Churchill Brothers as they leapfrogged the Arrows into the seventh place in the table. The Goan side scored two late-late goals with the opener scored by Dawda Ceesay (88‘) and Israil Gurung (90’+2′) adding another as it sealed all three points for the Red Machines.

The game looked to be heading for a draw but the game turned on its head in the last few minutes. It was heartbreak for the Indian Arrows colts as Churchill Brothers eventually scored in the 88th minute. It all started when Koffi beat the offside trap from a counter-attack and ran clear of the defenders before cutting inside.

His shot was cleared away but the scramble inside the box saw the ball rolling into the path of Ceesay who placed his shot into the net in the 88th minute. Churchill Brothers scored a second in the (90+2nd) minute when Anwar Ali conceded a free-kick just outside the box which was quickly taken by Koffi. Israil Gurung pounced on the opportunity and scored to secure all three points.

AIFF PRESS RELEASE : Churchill Brothers secured their second straight win of the season as they beat Shillong Lajong 2-0 in their Hero I-League encounter held at the Tilak Maidan on Friday (January 19, 2018). Goals from Osagie Monday (8‘) and PM Britto (76‘) helped the Red Machines secure a win that took their tally for the season to seven points.

Churchill took the lead thanks to a defensive error by Shillong Lajong goalkeeper Phurba Tempa Lachenpa in the 8th minute. Churchill centre-back Osagie Monday saw Tempa out of his line and launched a ball in his direction from his own half. Churchill Brothers took their 1-0 lead into half-time.

Lajong started the second half more purposefully and had an early chance when their defender Laurence Doe tried to head in a corner towards the far post but missed by a few yards. Churchill Brothers punished them when a quick counter-attack saw PM Britto cut in from the right and line up a left foot curler.

Britto was allowed time and enough space on the ball as he unleashed a curler from outside the box that swerved past Tempa. They led 2-0 in the 76th minute and cruised to victory as they continue to turn around their season. Churchill Brothers FC Goa now close the gap with Chennai City FC who have amassed two points more having played as many matches more.
