Churchill rallies to beat Chirag

Margao: Churchill Brothers kept its hopes of winning the title alive when it rallied to beat Chirag United 2-1 and move to second spot of the table after round 21 of the I-league football at the Nehru Stadium here on Sunday.

Chirag United, which dictated terms in the midfield in the first half, took the lead in the 29th minute when Sunil Chhetri's bicycle kick off a Josimar pass found the net.

Defender Chika Wali, who shadowed Okolie throughout the match, was guilty in conceding the equaliser when he tried to clear a cross from Raju Yumnam from the right but ended in finding his side's own net in the 61st minute.

The goal spurred Churchill Brothers which went into an attacking mode and scored four minutes later.

Charan Rai initiated the move from the left as he relayed the ball to Okolie who chested the ball to Zakeer Mundampara who volleyed home with a fierce shot that found the roof of the net which turned out to be the match-winner.

Zakeer was later adjudged Man-of-the-Match.

The win takes Churchill Brothers to second spot with 43 points from 21 matches, the same as Salgaocar which has played three matches less than Churchill.

Chirag United, which conceded its second straight defeat, remained on 24 points from 20 matches. — PTI
