Mohammedan juniors beat Rainbow Athletic Club

KOLKATA, India: Mohammedan Sporting consolidated their position at the top of the Junior League Zonal Round Group B by beating NBP Rainbow Athletic Club 3-1 on Wednesday.

Sujay Buduk (20'), Srimanta Kisku (57') and William Lalgoulien (79') were on target for the Young Panthers before Rainbow pulled a goal back though Jit Das (90+3').

The Young Panthers could have had their biggest win of the campaign had they not opted to slow the pace and take their foot off the pedal in the second-half.

Mohammedan came close to opening the scoring in the fourth minute when Mithunendu Mondal met a Irfan Mondal corner-kick, but his six-yard header struck the side netting.

The Young Panthers continued to pile on the pressure and were rewarded with the opening goal in the 20th minute.

A swift counter-attack saw Sujay through on goal and he proceeded to superbly chip the onrushing Sourav Mallick to give his side the lead.
