Bordoloi Trophy: Mohammedan Sporting notch up third win

GUWAHATI, Assam: Mohammedan Sporting overcame 2nd Division League rivals TRAU FC 2-1 in Group B match of the Bordoloi Trophy on Friday.

Midfielders Satyam Sharma (24') and Sumit Ghosh (33') were on target while Ngangbam Naocha (39') pulled a goal back for TRAU at Nalbari's Mukalmua Stadium.

Having already assured their place in the semis, Mohammedan made six changes to the side that defeated Baarhoongkha FC 3-1 in the previous round.

Despite the changes, Black Panthers were strong enough to settle into their rhythm.

The flair and pace that has become a hallmark of Manipuri football was evident as the Mohammedan SC back-line struggled to close down the attacks.

The Kolkata side broke the deadlock in the 24th minute when Satyam slotted a free-kick home from 20 yards.

Mohammedan increased the lead nine minutes later through Ghosh.
