Alex nets winner

BANGALORE: Karnataka State Police (KSP) defeated Dharmaraja Union by a solitary goal in a Super Division football league match at the Football Stadium, here on Thursday.

The all-important goal for the State police came in the 77th minute through Alex. This was KSP's third win after it had defeated SAI (2-0) and ISRO (4-2) earlier.

In another match, neighbouring outfits, LRDE and ADE were involved in a 2-2 draw in a match that was marred by some rough play. Both the teams were reduced to 10 men each when LRDE's George and Rajesh of ADE were involved in a fist-fight in the middle in the 60th minute and the referee Lawrence promptly showed the red card to both the players.

ADE which went into the lead in the third minute through Praveen Kumar and Santosh added to the tally in the 11th.

However, LRDE pulled back through George (34th) and Prachu (41s {+t}) to split points.

Equestrian meet

The Bangalore Horse Show and the National equestrian championships will commence at the Agram grounds at the ASC Centre and College here on Sunday.

Over 150 riders from across the country are expected to participate.

The Bangalore Horse Show includes dressage, show-jumping, and tent-pegging competitions in junior, open, novice, young rider and senior citizen categories.

The National equestrian championships proper will begin on June 23. Eventing (dressage, cross-country, and show-jumping) will be held in one-day event and three-day event formats.

The latter is a CCI* (one star) level competition, and will feature some of the country's best riders, including Risaldar Gulab Singh, Ajay Appachu and Nadia Haridas: all part of the Indian team that was to participate in the 2010 Asian Games.

“The course (cross-country) is of an international standard and the competition has received a one-star rating,” said Col. R.S. Yadav, chief organiser, and assistant coach of the Asian Games team.

“Therefore an observer from the FEI will also be present.”

The events will conclude on June 26.
