JAYDIP DASGUPTA : The most awaited Derby match between the two arch rivals East Bengal and Mohun Bagan ended in Kolkata, as the two teams locked in a goal less draw. East Bengal are with 40 points after 20th round, so they have to earn maximum points from the remaining six matches in order to gain the I league tittle.

East Bengal had the better of territorial advantages, with Mehtab Hossain took control of the red and gold mid field and he is supported by Raltey. In the first half Penn Orji enjoy to run the middle third and send a number of passes to Cheddi, Baljit and overlapping Khabra, but the forwards failed to open any positive chances.

Mohan Bagan deep defender Iche and Ibor has had a good game as they have covered the Zone and hardly gave the red and gold strikers to create any open chances. In fact, Trevor James Morgan while addressing the post match media meeting says that his team were successful in creating some half chances. Morgan further added that he is pleased to having a point and still there is a chance of winning the tittle.



The only positive chance created in the entire match when Odafa's right footed free kick from outside the 18 yards hit the far post and rebounded back. Odafa was fouled from behind by Mehtab Hossain. Odafa by his individual brilliance created some danger outside the box but in all the occasions the danger was avoided by the East Bengal deep defense. Though it was observed that Arnab was a bit nervous in the initial stages. In another occasion Tolgey"s shot hit Opara"s hand when the later was in the turf but the referee Santosh Kumar denied any chances of spot kick.

Mohan Bagan are now in 6 points and it is a uphill task for them to save from the relegation. While talking to the media the mariners coach Karim Bancharifa said that he is pleased with the days performance and his team is improving gradually. Karim is confident to save his team from relegation.





Another aspect in today's match is the less number of attendance. It can be said that this is the lowest number of spectators in any derby match at the Yubabharati. While the Mohan bagan secretary Anjan Mitra thinks that Yubabharati does not have the proper infrastructure to have the capacity of more than 50 thousands.He added that today the attendance was 25 thousand.

PFC REPORT : Pune FC put on a brilliant show winning the 'Maha-Derby' demolishing Mumbai FC 3-0 in an I-League Round 20 'Away' encounter at the Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi, on Saturday. Striker James Moga opened the scoring in the 56th minute before completing his brace in the 71st min. Midfielder Arata Izumi (84th) then rounded off the scoring with a crisp strike.

With the win, Pune FC regained their 4th position with 33 points from 18 games, while Mumbai FC stay 6th with 26 points from 19 games. The win also broke Pune FC's four-match winless streak. The victory was Pune FC's 10th win of the I-League and second over Mumbai FC after they won the first-leg 3-2.

Pune FC started the game confidently and had skipper Douhou Pierre shoot just wide after Moga set him up on the quarter hour mark. Minutes later, Jeje Lalpekhlua's header went wide as the visitors signalled their intent.

Pune FC then survived a close chance when Mumbai FC striker Yusif Yakubu's low cross was not dealt properly by the defense. But ND Opara failed to finish with the goal wide open. Both sides created chances but failed in the final third. Into the final minutes of the half, defender Chika Wali was elbowed hard by Justin Stephan. However the referee failed to book the player.

Ten minutes after the break Pune FC took the lead. Striker Moga coolly headed in Khanthang Paite's cross in from the left. Five minutes later, Moga found space after Douhou sent him through only for his powerful shot to go just over.

Midway through the half, Moga scored his second with a left-footed finish past the helpless Mumbai FC 'keeper after controlling Douhou's pin-point through ball. Pune FC then dominated the proceedings and into the final ten minutes Jeje's header was cleared off the line after he did well to connect Moga's cross.

Couple minutes later, Arata scored a brilliant goal to close the match. Douhou sent a low ball from a corner on the right to Arata on the edge of the box. The medio's first attempt was blocked but his powerful left-footed volley left 'keeper Luis Barreto stunned.

SL: Edinho 13', 56'
Pune FC came from a goal down twice to draw 2-2 with Shillong Lajong FC in an I-League Round 21 encounter at the Balewadi Sports Complex, Pune on Sunday. Striker Edinho Junior (13th & 56th minute) twice gave Shillong Lajong the lead, but substitute striker Boima Karpeh scored a brace (51st & 59th) to equalise for Pune FC. Both strikers were making their league debuts for the respective clubs.

Pune FC stay on fourth place with 34 points from 19 games while Lajong climb up to tenth with 20 points from 21 games. Pune FC began the game on the offensive and had couple chances. Medio Khanthang Paite failed to keep his shot down after controlling Karma Tsewang?s low cross seven minutes into the game.

However, it was Lajong who took the lead in the 13th minute through new signing Edinho Junior. After losing the ball in the Lajong half, Pune FC defense failed to clear as Sho Kamimura slid back a cross from the left to Edinho who finished.

Ten minutes later, striker James Moga had his freekick saved by the keeper Lalthuammawia Ralte.

Pune FC then brought in striker Karpeh in place of skipper Douhou Pierre and the move paid off as the Liberian-Australian scored the equaliser six minutes into the half.

Striker Jeje Lalpekhlua slid a ball to Karpeh on the run, who controlled it and released a left-footer. Keeper Ralte got a hand but couldn't keep the ball from rolling into the net. Pune FC's joy was short lived as poor goalkeeping cost them. Keeper Abhra tried to tip over a long ball into the box over the cross bar. However the ball rebounded off the crossbar and fell for Edinho who nodded home.

At the other end, Pune FC once again equalised three minutes later. Karpeh completed his brace after heading home defender Othallo Tabia's perfect cross. Both teams created several chances in the final quarter of the game, but poor finishing in the final third let them down.

AIR INDIA HOLD EAST BENGAL AT KALYANI IN 2md LEG

23.03.2013: JAYDIP DASBUPTA & MRINAL KANTI NATH : Air India snatched a valuable point from East Bengal today at Kalyani in their I League outing against East Bengal. Air India equalized at the added time to make the score level. East Bengal took the lead in the 61st minute but unable to capitalize the advantage and lost two valuable points in the final rounds.

....In our preview we have mentioned that East Bengal should utilize the scoring opportunities. In fact the red and gold had wasted a number of chances all through the 90 minutes.Eddeh Cheddi, Barisik, Dika and Penn Orji are the culprits in numerous occasions, they failed to score in the open net only the Air India goalkeeper Sukbinder Singh at their mercy.

It should be mention that the Air India goalkeeper showcased an example of brilliant goalkeeping and in fact he stood between East Bengal and the Air India goal. East Bengal took the lead in the60th minute of the match when Andrew Barisik crosses from the left and Chidi after fumbling finds the net. Air India slowly gain control of the midfield and utilized the left channel of East Bengal deep defense and continued to create pressure. In the 65th minute Pradeep shot was saved brilliantly by Gurpit diving to his left.

It has been seen that the midfield of East Bengal are quite slow in reacting and played scrappy football with lots of mis passes in the second session. Air India equalized at the 91st minute when Ezeh Henry dribbled past Uga Opara and places. to the left of Gurpit. At the end of the 21st round the red and gold are at 41 points and placed at the 2nd position of the I-league table. Trevor Morgan's target is to earn full points in the home matches, but failed to earn in one of the most easiest match in the final phase.

GFA PRESS RELEASE: ChChurchill rally to hold Dempo to a 2-2 draw

Sunil Chhetri scored twice to help Churchill Brothers to come from behind twice to hold Dempo to a 2-2 draw in the 24th round of the I-League, played at Tilak Maidan Stadium, Vasco, here today. After Ryuji Sueoka (12th) and Climax Lawerence (first half injury time) twice put Dempo up it was Sunil Chhetri who scored twice to help Churchill Brothers to hold Dempo to a 2-2 draw and take Churchill Brothers tally to 48 points from 23 matches, to keep the title challenge open against East Bengal who are five points behind them.

Dempo who are on fifth place took their total tally to 36 points from 24 matches. Both the side played an attacking game in the first half where Churchill Brothers had more of the ball possession created more scoring chances but Dempo's keeper Subhasish Roy Chowdhury was alert under the bar to deny Churchill Brothers an early lead when he tipped the ball over the bar off Balan's header after Steven Dias crossed the ball from the right.

With defender Sameer Naik, Debrata Roy and striker Ryuji Sueoka coming in from injury Dempo who lost four matches at a trot looked a better side today with Sueoka putting his team ahead in the 12th minute when he headed home a well directed cross from the left by Debrata Roy. Minutes later Sueoka again would have scored but timely intervention by rival keeper Sandip spade work. Churchill Brothers who had more of the ball possession created couple of scoring chances but Chowdhury. The red machine pressing hard to find the equalizer, earned a free kick just on top of the box free the 43rd minute.



Churchill joy was short lived as Dempo again regained the lead minute before the interval when Climax Lawerence scored after Koko Sakibo set him up inside the box to have Dempo leading 2-1 at half time. Sunil Chhetri who is good in dead ball suitation once again brought Churchill Brothers in level term after the change of ends when he beat keeper Subhasish Roy Chowdhury all ends The match became more exciting after the goal as both the team going all out in search of Dempo's keeper Chowdhury was outstanding under the bar to deny Leny Rodrigues and Ashley Fernandes from scoring.

Churchill Brothers who dominated the proceeding in the last quarter of the match as they went all out in search of the winner but were distinctly unlucky when Henri Antchouet header was put out by defender Sameer Naik on the goal.

REPORT: JAYDIP DASGUPTA : East Bengal Club of Kolkata lost another two valuable points in a crucial encounter against the Sporting Clube of Goa at home today. The red and gold brigade tied 1-1 as Trevor Morgan's dream to win the I league is now depend on the results of Churchill Brothers who are leading the I league table with 47 points after 22nd round.

East Bengal conceded the goal in the 44 minutes of the 1st half. A faulty clearance by Abhijit Mondal had to pay off when Juan Fena's right footed curling shot beat the East Bengal custodian. In fact East Bengal was in search of a leader in the midfield throughout the entire 90 minutes. As a result of which the red and gold failed to create opportunities in the middle third.

The absence of Khabra and Mehtab was really felt in deep defense as well as in the attacking third. But what really surprising is that East Bengal concentrated on the over head lobes rather than playing passing football and hence the tall and lanky Goan deep defender's task were easy to clear the ball. In spite of this the red and gold waisted a number of opportunities as usual and made the match tougher for them.

East Bengal restored parity in the 63rd minute of the second half when a center from the left by Robert was headed in by Cheddi beating the Sporting goalkeeper Bruno Colaco. East Bengal dominated in the second half and created pressure just after the equalizer but the sluggishness of Penn Orji and Robin Singh failed to create any positive results.

At one stage in the final rounds the red and gold were leading the league table. But the loss of 6 points in the last three matches against Air India, United Sports and Sporting Clube had increase the difference with the Churchill Brothers. At the end of the 23rd round East Bengal are with 43 points.

Shillong Lajong FC 2-0 Mumbai FC



14.03.2013: Shillong Lajong   2-0   Mumbai FC ( SLG - FT)
SLFC : Min-Chol-Son 33', Sushil Kumar Singh 77'

14.04.2013 : SLFC MEDIA...KFC. | www.kolkatafootball.com HOME PAGE

SLFC MEDIA FOR KFC: The script could not have been better written. It truly was a memorable finale to the I-League in Shillong(being the last home game of the season). The atmosphere was electric, the sea of supporters robust, as the players lined up for the Shillong Lajong ?Mumbai FC match, under cloudy and overcast skies, in Shillong.

On the field though, Shillong Lajong started brightly with Edinho Junior looking dangerous in front, on a couple of occasions, and linking up well with strike partner, Sushil Kumar, who himself came close to opening the scoring for the Reds. Five clear chances in front of goal came for Shillong Lajong, who dominated from the word go.

Chance after chance and after what seemed like an eternity, the crowd was brought to life when Minchol Son glanced a header past the Mumbai custodian in the 33rd minute, to send the crowd into ruptures. The stadium was now a rip-roaring spectacle of Lajong Faithfuls, draped wholly in Red. The two sides continued to trade blows, as the game opened up more with the passage of play. The first half though,did not see any more goals, as both teams went into their dressing rooms.

After the break the visitors started to play with a little more urgence, to find the much needed equaliser but lacked the finishing touch and failed to get past a strong Lajong wall who were now defending with belief and sheer grit.

The home side too had a plethora of chances, with Rennedy Singh almost making it 2-0, for his side,when his free kick was parried away by the Mumbai keeper. Chance after chance came for both teams more so Shillong Lajong as the game wore on towards its finish. And finally, after a bright passage of play,Sushil Kumar struck one from close range in the 79th minute to put the game to bed and beyond the Mumbaikars.

Both sides used all of their substitutes, with the Reds bringing in Sho Kamimura for Edinho,who was given a rousing farewell, PC Lalhimthara for Boithang and Samson Ramengmawia for Rennedy Singh. Mumbai,meanwhile,brought on James Singh for Gabriel Fernandes, Jayesh for Darren and John Coutinho for Nicholas Rodrigues.

After that, it was merely a matter of time before the crowd could finally celebrate a much deserved win. The win did come,when the referee blew his whistle, confirming the three vital points for the Reds and closing the I-league (in Shillong) on a thrilling and positive note for Shillong Lajong.



Pune FC impress in 100th I-League game; pip ONGC, move into 3rd place



14.04.2013 : PUNE MEDIA..KFC. | www.kolkatafootball.com HOME PAGE

14.03.2013: ONGC   0-1   PUNE FC (DEL-FT)
PFC : 45'+2 J. Moga

PUNE FC MEDIA FOR KFC : Pune FC made their 100th I-League game commemorative with a 1-0 win over ONGC FC in Round 24 at Ambedkar Stadium in New Delhi, on Sunday. Striker James Moga (45+3rd) was the architect of this landmark encounter and enabled Pune FC return to winning ways which swelled to a dozen.

The victory pushed Pune FC (40 points) into third place on the league table and also logged their first ever win over ONGC in New Delhi. Moreover, this was the third instance Pune FC completed a double-leg win over opponents. The other opponents include Mumbai FC and Dempo SC respectively.

Pune FC Coach Derrick Pereira went into the game effecting five changes to the playing eleven that played in Goa. In the goal, Amrinder Singh replaced Shahinlal Meloly; in defence N Mohanraj (for Gurjinder Kumar); midfielders Velington Rocha (for Khantang Paite), Arata Izumi (for Sukhwinder Singh), Mumtaz Akhtar (for Jeje Lalpekhlua).

The game began in explosive fashion with action at both ends inside the opening minute. ONGC striker Eric Brown tried a pot shot within seconds, but it deflected straight to Pune FC ?keeper Amrinder Singh who was making his first start. At the other end, Pune FC's fast-paced counter-attack was saved. Moga got on to left-back N. Mohanraj's long ball only to be denied TP Rehenesh who pulled off a save.

Minutes later, medio Arata Izumi's dangerous cross inside the box was cleared followed by winger Velington Rocha's attempt which was blocked. ONGC then had Eric send his free-kick wide from a dangerous narrow angle, which followed with 'keeper Amrinder Singh cutting off Eric's delivery into the box.

Pune FC were pushing forward and were unlucky not to take the lead. Winger Karma Tsewang's attempt from narrow angle whizzed past the 6-yard box with no takers. Midfielder Mumtaz then tried his luck from distance but went over. A minute past the quarter hour mark, Pune FC missed a sitter. Rocha's brilliant inswinging free kick was headed across by defender Chika Wali from the far post and Moga somehow headed it wide from half a yard outside.

Five minutes later, ONGC defender Hasan Odeola took a crack from distance straight into Amrinder. At the other end Moga's low attempt on the freekick earned by Mumtaz went wide. Two minutes before the half-hour mark, Mohanraj's long throw once again caused danger, as Moga's flick was attempted by Rocha, whose second attempt ended blocked.

Minutes past the half-hour mark, Rocha lost the ball up the right leading to a counter into Pune FC's penalty-box, first with Kailash Patil and then Jatin Bisht shooting. The first attempt was blocked by defender Anas Edathodika, while the second going over.

The Pune FC defense kept on living dangerously. First, Anas lost the ball in defence only for Yusa Katsumi failing to capitalize. On the resulting corner, Amrinder cleared the ball out. The second ball into the box, later, attempted by Yusa, was collected by Amrinder.

Pune FC, finally, took the lead three minutes into first half injury time. A brilliant counter ball into space saw Douhou in the clear and attack the space in the penalty box. There he cut back for Moga who slotted home on the volley.

Pune FC took their one goal advantage into the breather.

The Reds began the second half same way as they ended the first almost scoring a second. Karma found Douhou up the channel, whose cut back deflected off 'keeper onto post and was cleared. At the other end, Pune FC survived a close call. Eric's cross from the left found substitute Lalmuan Puia in the box, but his touch from the 6-yard box went wide.

The game turned into a physical battle thereafter with many players getting booked. At the hour mark, Pune FC created back-to-back chances. Moga went wide after being put through by Othallo. Then, off the next move Arata shot narrowly off target when ball fell for him on top of the box.

Ten minutes later, Pune FC held on two dangerous diagonals into box by ONGC. Luckily, Yusa failed to connect cleanly and capitalise. Pune FC then survived an ONGC onslaught in the final minutes as they held on to their slender lead. Substitute Boima 'Jerry' Karpeh, on for the goal-scoring James Moga, found his attempt on a counter saved by Reheneesh.

(2012-13 I-League-I) : 21.04.2013: Mohun Bagan   0-2   Churchill Brothers : (KYL - FT )
CB : Henry 18', 34'

MMB : Shilton, Nabi, Aibor, Nirmal, Biswajit, Denson, Manish Sr., Jacobs, Odafa, Tolgey, Sabeeth.
CB : Sandip, Denzil, Ravanan, Tamba, Thyanjam, Jaison, Lenney, Ashley, Belal, Sunil, Henry..

The Churchill Brothers Of Goa advances further to their dream to win the I-league tittle. A brace of goals by Henry in the 19th and 32nd min registered an important victory over the Mohun Bagan club at Kalyani. The Goan dominance continued in the Indian soccer as this will be the consecutive sixth year that the I league will be crowned by any Goan Club.

Churchill started to dominate right from the beginning using both the flanks. The absence of Iche in the mariners deep defense was prominent as Aibor and Nirmal failed to control the sheer speed of the oppornants. The Mohun Bagan custodian Shilton Paul was the savior in some occasion, otherwise the tally should have been different. The mid field of Bagan had to surrender in front of the accurate ball play of the Churchill Brothers.

The first goal came in the 19th minute when a forward through from Sunil Chetri was received inside the box by Henry who placed at the back of the net beating the on rushing Shilton Pal. Churchill increased the margin in the 32nd minute when Henry received a forward pass from Lenny Rodriges beat Aibor and Biswajit with sheer speed and places in the far corner of the net.



Mohun Bagan in response played some passes in the middle third, tried to create some danger but the rock solid deep defense of the Goan team leaded by Lamine Tambey and Ravaran was in control of the situation. In fact Odafa was under the shadow of Tambey and Tolgey was a mere spectator. In spite of this Sandip Nandy had to rise to the occasion to save a shot of Odafa and Denzil Franco had a goal line save when Odafa lobes a ball in the vacant goal.

With this win the Churchill Brothers are leading the I league table with 51 points, ahead of East Bengal and Pune FC who are at 43 points. So, it can be said that Churchill are now preparing themselves to celebrate their victory.

Mohun Bagan are still fighting to save the relegation and at present they are ahead of Sikkim United, Shillong Lazong and Air India. They have to earn maximum points from their remaining matches in order to be in the safe zone.

I-League: Pune FC score biggest-ever I-League win, thrash Air India 6-0

PFC MEDIA RELEASE : Pune FC scored their biggest-ever I-League win thrashing Air Indian FC 6-0 in a Round 25 'Away' encounter at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Mhalunge-Balewadi in Pune on Saturday. The win was architected by a brace from striker James Moga (39th & 67th minute) and strikes from Boima 'Jerry' Karpeh (26th), Douhou Pierre (52nd), Jeje Lalpekhlua (74th) and Nikhil Kadam (86th).

With this win Pune FC regained their third position with 43 points from 23 games, second only to East Bengal on goal difference; while Air India stay rooted on 13th with 19 points from 24 games. After a slow start to the game, Pune FC took the lead midway through the half. 'Keeper Amrinder Singh saved Pradeep Mohanraj's cross in from the right and pumped the ball ahead on a counter. Jerry controlled the ball on the left and beat a couple of defenders before sliding the ball past the 'keeper at the near post.

Striker Moga the doubled the lead six minutes from the break when he controlled a lob pass into the box and pushed the ball beyond keeper Sukhwinder Singh. Pune FC took their two goal lead into the breather.

Seven minutes after the restart, Pune FC increased their lead. After Douhou's initial shot was blocked Moga did well to find him on the right flank and the Ivorian finished with ease. Two minutes later, Moga earned a penalty after being brought down in the box. However he failed to convert from the spot kick as his shot came off the vertical on the left.

Moga however completed his brace twelve minutes later. Substitute F. Lalrempuia - making his debut - dispossessed an opponent and found Jerry on the edge of the box. Jerry slid the ball to Moga on the right flank from where his unstoppable shot from an acute angle ended in the net. Five minutes later, Douhou sent substitute Jeje in the clear on the left. Jeje shielded the keeper on the wing before sliding back to winger Khanthang Paite whose shot from distance agonisingly hit the crossbar.

Two minutes later, Jeje did get his name on the scoresheet when his finished off a counter after Moga found him in the clear on the left. Four minutes from time, Pune FC made it six after substitute Nikhil scored his first senior goal for the club. Lalrempuia, Moga and Douhou combined on the right before Moga set up Nikhil on the left. The winger scored calmly past the helpless keeper from 8 yards.

20.04.2013: ONGC FC   1-1   Mumbai FC (DEL - FT )
ONGC : Yusa 19'
MFC : Yakubu 90+4' :: MOM : Wahid ( ONGC)
ONGC : Rehnesh, Parminder, Adeola, Robin, Whaliad, Jatin, Kailash, Sachin, Lalrinmuana, Yusa, Muritala.

Mumbai FC hold ONGC to a draw

AIFF MEDIA RELEASE : Prior to the kick-off, one had to look back at ONGC's Home record. Not consisting of any big names and supposedly an easy meat on paper, ONGC have been almost invincible at the Ambedkar Stadium in the 2012/13 edition of the I-League.

As things stand now, if East Bengal don't win the title, they may look back at the ONGC match which they lost at the Ambedkar Stadium; if even Churchill Brothers don't eventually win their title, they may also look back at the ONGC match in which they were held in New Delhi. Even defending champions Dempo SC will admit that it was their 1-3 defeat against ONGC at the Ambedkar Stadium which started their slide.

The trend continued. An injury-time goal by Yusif Yakubu helped Mumbai FC to earn a point against ONGC at the Ambedkar Stadium on Saturday (April 20). Earlier, Yusa Katsumi had converted from the spot to put ONGC in the lead in the 18th minute. The match marked the end of ONGC.s home-matches in the Capital.

Courtesy the result, both teams moved to 31 points from 25 matches.

ONGC's first chance came as early as the fifth minute. Kailash Patil's deft turn caught rival defender Kamaljeet Kumar on the wrong foot and the former was brought down. But off the resultant free-kick, Yusa Katsumi's try sailed inches over. A couple of minutes later, Yusa was brought down by rival defender Peter Costa and this time David Lalrinmuana's free-kick was way off the mark.

Mumbai FC came back strongly and forced a goalline clearance in the 12th minute - Justin Stephen's header off a Nicolas Rodrigues corner was cleared off the line by Sachin Gawas.ONGC surged ahead in the 18th minute. A David cross from the right was handled inside the box by Kamaljeet and Yusa gleefully converted from the spot to make it 1-0.

Mumbai FC's best chance in the first-half came in the 31st minute. Peter Costa set up Evans Quao inside the box but his prompt shot was palmed away by ONGC goalkeeper Rehenesh. Yusa, who till then, was creating problems for the Mumbai FC defenders, limped off in the 35th minute and was substituted by Naresh Aula. ONGC, thereafter, looked a bit wayward.

Changing over, Mumbai FC stayed the more dominant force. They did break into the rival box a number of times but the ONGC defenders managed to keep them in bay. Their easiest chance came in the 58th minute when John Coutinho, all in control, failed to tap it over an onrushing Rehenesh from the top of the box. Much to the frustration of the Mumbai FC bench, the ball sailed over.

Three minutes later, Yasif Yakubu failed to direct his free-header into the net off a Nicolas centre down the left. ONGC who depended on counter-attacks, also had their chances. In the 65th minute, former India International Jatin Bisht's header off a David corner bounced off the post.

ONGC who had been pressing hard just couldn't convert the chances which came their way. Substitute Kuttymani's miss in the 88th minute summed up the day for them. With all the time in the World, Kuttymani?s header off a Peter Costa cross went over.

But the drama was in store. The lanky Abhishek Yadav set up Yakubu in the clear and the veteran striker banged it in to the right of Rehenesh in the 94th minute. The match ended 1-1. The last time the two teams had met, Mumbai FC had scraped past ONGC by a solitary goal at the Balewadi Sports Complex in Pune.

EAST BENGAL HOLD DEMPO SC 2-2 IN AWAY MATCH AT GOA IN 25TH ROUND.

04.05.2013 DEMPO SC   2-2   EAST BENGAL (GOA - FT..) DEM : Carvalho 49', Jonny 75'

KEB : Penn 17', Isfaq Ahmed 86'

MOM : Godwin Franco (DEM)

JAYDIP DASGUPTA : 4.05.2013 : The second leg of the I-league clash between the last years defending champions and the runners up were locked in a 2-2 draw at the Duler Stadium in Goa. East Bengal continued to loose points in the important stages of the tournament and the changes of being finished second unlike last two years are almost impossible. In our preview we had mentioned that the red and gold should capitalize the scoring opportunities.Today in both the half's they had failed to convert some easiest of the opportunities.

East Bengal started well in the first half by controlling the midfield leading by Mehtab Hossain and Penn Orji.The red and gold took the lead in the 17th minute of the first half when Penn dribbled past three of the Dempo defender and places it to the left of Subhasish Roy Chowdhury. East Bengal continued their note of playing passes between themselves created some opportunities but as usual they wasted some easiest of changes.during the first session the Dempo midfield failed to create any impact.

Dempo equalized just after the break at the 48th minute through Joy Ferrao who came in as a change of Clifford Miranda equalized from a Godwin Franco free kick. In the 53rd min the Dempo midfielder Peter Carvalo had to taken off the field when he hurt his jaw after getting crashed with the post.He was unconscious for some time and had to rush to the Hospital. The news which we have received from the Dempo Officials that the condition of Peter Carvalo is stable now.

Jonny Menyongar the Liberian recruit of Dempo increased the lead as he snatched off a loose ball from the red and gold deep defense and places the ball to the left of the East Bengal custodian Gurpit Singh Sandhu.This fault of the deep defense of the Kolkata giant is mercy less.

East Bengal leveled the score at the 83rd minute when Isfaq Amhed capitalized a pass from Andrew Barisik who was replaced by Penn Orji. Andrew Borisic could have been the hero if he placed the ball from Cheddi's pass almost in the empty goal when Subasish was at his mercy

(IL : 28.04.2013: PUNE FC   4-0   AIR INDIA (FT.)
PFC : Moga 34', Douhou 50', 77', Boima 84'.
PFC: Amrinder, Othallo, Anas, Chika, Gurjinder, Karma, Puia, Arata, Paite, Douhou, Moga.
AIR: Bubai, Gagandeep, Ojeme, Souvik, Junior, Prakash, Pratik, Henry, Johnychand, Vijith, Rahul

PFC MEDIA TEAM : Pune FC made it ten goals against Air India FC after thrashing them 4-0 in an I-League Round 6 rescheduled encounter at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Pune on Sunday. Earlier, Pune FC logged a huge 6-0 win in the first-leg over the Airmen eight days earlier.

With this win, Pune FC kept pressure on leaders Churchill Brothers whom they trail by two points having played a game more. The win was Pune FC's 15th win this season and now have their best-ever I-League tally of 49 points as the hosts stay on second place.

Playmaker Douhou Pierre's second half brace (50th & 77th minute) and goals from strikers James Moga (34th) and Boima "Jerry" Karpeh (84th) gave Pune FC another big win. However missed chances saved the rivals from further humiliation. Pune FC took charge from the opening minute. Six minutes into the game, Moga went wide on his half-volley after Karma set him up. Minutes later his attempt was blocked by keeper Bubai Singh after he connected Douhou's low ball.

At the quarter hour mark, Moga on a counter cut back on the right and unleashed a left-footer which was blocked by the keeper. The rebound fell for Doohou, but a defender cleared almost instantly. Four minutes after the half-hour mark Moga gave Pune FC the lead. The striker headed home winger Khanthang Paite's inch perfect cross in from the left.

At the other end, Pune FC custodian was in the form of his life blocking every attempt into the box. He pulled off a brilliant save on Jonychand?s Singh's swerving long-range attempt. Pune FC took their one goal lead into the break.

The hosts doubled their advantage almost instantly as Moga and Douhou combined again. Douhou dispossessed an opponent in the midfield; Moga picked up the loose ball and set up the Douhou who held off a defender's challenge before placing it well past the keeper.

Half an hour later, Douhou completed his brace to hand Pune FC a three goal lead. Controlling a throw-in from the left, the playmaker turned around, beat a couple of defenders with some quick feet and finished at the far post. Air India were restricted to few attacks but whenever they created an opportunity, they were denied by the in-form Amrinder.

Six minutes from the full-time whistle, substitute Jerry ? on for Moga - put the final nail in Air India's coffin. The striker controlled Chika Wali's long ball on the left, skipped past a defender inside the box and slid the ball at the far post. The goal was almost identical to his strike against the Airmen a week back.

12.05.2013 (I-L-R/26)- EAST BENGAL   0-1   SHILLONG LAJONG (KAL - 90'.+ 4' add. FT. )
SLFC: Taisuke 11' ( M.O.M ). Y/C: Subodh(EB)
KEB : Abhijit, Raju, Gurwinder, Arnab, Robert, Vashum, Subodh, Kevin, Robin (Chidi), Manandeep , Baljit (Borisic).
SLFC : Basant, Passah, Min-Chol-Son, Jibon, Lallawmzuala, Subhas, Samson, Boithang, Sho, Taisuke, Sushil....Referee : Umesh Bora.

East Bengal completed their I-League mission for the year 2012-13. In Kalyani today they were defeated by Shillong Lazong FC by a solitary goal but finished third in the I league table. The last match of the red and gold were a mere formality as Pune Fc ranked themselves in the second position yesterday over coming the Pailan Arrows by a margin of 3-1. So, after being the runners up in the last two years in the Morgan era this year East Bengal finished third.


Today East Bengal coach Travor James Morgan has completed his 1017th Day (31.7.2010 - 12.05.2013) in East Bengal. Kalyani Minucipality Chairman Dr. Nilimesh Roy Chowdhury felecited him with 1017 Red Rose and some Gift for the Coach.

The experts are in the opinion that East Bengal can be ranked much higher if they can capitalize the opportunity and in some matches the deep defense failed at the dying stages of the match unable to keep the lead.
Trevor Morgan today rested his foreigners as East Bengal will have to play three important matches within a week.The pre quarter final of the AFC cup at kolkata and two of the remaining matches of the Kolkata Premier league against United Sports and the Derby with the arch rivals Mohun Bagan on the 23rd. Shillong Lazong Fc took the lead in the 11th minute of the match.

Taisuke after receiving a pass from the mid field dribbled pass Raju Gaikwad inside the 18 yards and places the ball beating the advancing goalkeeper Abhijit Mondal.



East Bengal dominated in the midfield leading by Raisagmi Vashum and Subodh Kumar but the strikers failed to equalize.Manandip and Baljit can be blamed for the misses. In the the second session Morgan replaced Cheddi and Barisik in place of Robin and Baljit.

East BVengal created pressure, played a number of passes in the midfield and in the middle third, but unable to create any positive results. At the dying stages of the match Abhijit Mondal came to the rescue of his team when he saved a shot from Baithang other wise the red and gold had to face more problem.

East Bengal are with 47 points to finish third in the I league. They are the team who is economical in conceding oals. Records shows that only 18 goals scored against them. But it should be mentioned that they had conceded some unnecessary goals specially against United Sports and Air India which is mercy less. Shillong Lazong ended the league in the 11th position with 28 points to their credit.
