Easy win for Kannur

KANNUR, OCT. 10 . Kannur University is determined to make a mark on the home turf. After all, it's the first ever inter-university it's hosting and in this particular competition, the South Zone football meet, it's never gone beyond the quarterfinals.

On Sunday it made a promising beginning to its campaign, blanking its neighbour, Manglaore, 5-0 in the opening match at the Police Parade Ground.

In the day's other games, VTU, Belgaum thrashed Rajiv Gandhi, Bangalore, 6-3, while Alagappa received a walkover from NIT, Surathkal.

The Kannur boys did take some time to find their feet, but once they did, the Mangalore defence was torn apart. P.C. Riju opened the scoring for Kannur in the 28th minute, and only that goal separated the two teams at the half-time. After the interval, the host's raids looked much more menacing, as P. Anas (on the 50th and 65th minutes), Praveen Kumar (80th) and captain M.V. Kalesh (85th) moved the net. For VTU, Belgaum, the scorers were Subbu (three), Bikash (two) and Agnishwar, while Siddiq (two) and Santosh Patil reduced the margin for the Bangalore team.
