First win for Churchill

Margao: Okolie Odafe struck twice against Mohun bagan to guide Churchill Brothers to its first win in this season's I-League, at the Nehru Stadium here on Sunday.

Churchill Brothers' plan to attack from the word go worked as it scored as early as in the third minute.

Zakeer Mundampara, who gave a good account in the midfield, sent a cross to Odafe who got the better of two rival defenders before essaying a firm right-footer that beat goalkeeper Paul all ends up.

The early goal was the impetus Churchill needed as it put pressure on the rival defence and found the net again through Odafe, but the Nigerian was called off side by referee S. Suresh.

Churchill's midfield combined well and, along with its strikers, troubled the Bagan defence. Bagan had three chances to score but Jose Baretto and Edeh Chidi failed. — PTI
