ATK Reserves beat Mohammedan Sporting in I-League II

KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting opened their campaign in the 2nd Division League with a 2-0 defeat against ATK Reserves at Kalyani Stadium here on Saturday.

Thomyo L. Shimray (26′) and Sheikh Azaruddin (59′) scored on the either side for the winners.

But it was Mohammedan, who are hoping to return to the top tier, who had a close look at the goal after Philip Adjah beat his marker only to see his shot saved by goalkeeper Jedidi Haokip in the 11th minute.

Four minutes later Adjah was once again off the target and six minutes later Balwinder Singh rose unchallenged to head a corner narrowly wide.

ATK shot into the lead against the run of the play when Shimray capitalized on a defensive error to beat Black Panthers custodian Laltu Mondal in the 26th minute while Azaruddin added the second from a free-kick in the 59th. (Pic Source: MSC)
