KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting suffered a shock 2-1 defeat against Tollygunge Agragami at the Calcutta Premier Division ‘A’ on Saturday.

Philip Adjah Tetteh put Mohammedan ahead in 2nd minute but Tollygunge hit back through Lago Dagbo Bei (31′ & 52′) to seal the points.

Mohammedan made three changes to the side that beat East Bengal 2-1 last week by handing starts to Adjah, Prosenjit Chakraborty and Shanid Valan at expense of Princewill Emeka, Satyam Shrama and Lancine Toure, who was suspended for the game.

The black and whites began the game on a positive note and shot into the lead when Adjah slotted home from Dipendu Dowary’s corner.

The goal boosted their confidence and a few good chances fell for Adjah and Dowary but they failed to convert.

At the other end, Tollygunge pulled level just past the half hour mark when Lago scored from Bayi Kamo’s pass in the 31st minute.

Thereafter, both sides had a few chances in closing minutes but couldn’t convert as the scoreline remained 1-1 at half-time.
