Chennaiyin FC U13 side return to winning ways

CHENNAI, India: Chennaiyin FC U13 team returned to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Great Goals in the Sub-Junior League here on Sunday, with K Karmugilan scoring a brace.

With this result, CFC have done the double over Great Goals, having beaten them 11-0 in the reverse fixture in the league opener last month.

The team will face Chennai City FC in an away game at the Chettinad School Ground in Kelambakkam on April 13.

There were no changes in the Chennaiyin starting lineup from the 1-0 loss to FC Madras three days back. And the hosts started off well, taking control of the proceedings from the outset.

Having dominated and created opportunities from the start, Chennaiyin took the lead through Karmugilan in the 17th minute following a defensive mistake by Great Goals. The opponents failed to clear the ball as it fell to Karmugilan, who headed home to open the scoring.

It was all CFC throughout the first period with all the action in the Great Goals half. Chennaiyin kept coming at their opponents, and the second goal eventually came in the 32nd minute, again Karmugilan the goalscorer. He combined well with G. Arulesh in midfield, who set up the Pondicherry-born striker in the box for the finish.
