Mohun Bagan fight back to beat Mohammedan 2-1

KOLKATA: Champions Mohun Bagan fought back to overcome Mohammedan Sporting 2-1 in the Calcutta Premier Division ‘A’ here on Tuesday.

Philip Adjah Tetteh gave Mohammedan the lead in the 73rd minute, but Bagan struck twice in the final minutes through Tirthankar Sarkar (82′) and Pintu Mahata (90′) to seal the points.

Mohammedan, who made four changes to the side by handing starts to Priyant Singh, Lancine Toure, Rakesh Karmakar and Princewill Emeka, failed to maintain the form they had shown in their last week’s 2-1 win over East Bengal.

The Mariners dominated the first half, with Aser Dipanda Dicka and Azharuddin Mallick and Pintu creating lot of forays.

Azharuddin played a great ball into the penalty area to find a late run from Dipanda, but the Cameroonian failed to tap it home.

Mohammedan remained fourth with 16 points from 10 outings and will play their last match against Calcutta Customs on September 22 at Barasat Stadium.
