Mohun Bagan clinch Kolkata League!

Today Mohun Bagan became the Champion of the Calcutta Footbal League 2007, with one match to spare. A near capacity crowd had gathered sensing a Bagan victory, and a Bagan victory it was!
From the beginning Mohun Bagan kept up the pressure. Bagan fielded Bhaichung and Lalam upfront and Barreto playing the role of a playmaker. The half rolled amidst much clamour and after about 25 mins, came the spark of brilliance from Lalampuia, whose side volley found the back of the net! Mohun Bagan still kept attacking and created quite a few chances, but failed to make god use of them.
The second half commenced and Mohun Bagan clearly held the upper hand. Just a few minutes into the 2nd Half, a ball from the right found Lalam who hit the cross-bar.
Again another chance was put to waste by Bhaichung as a free ball was gifted by Barreto, but Bhaichung put it wide.
And a few more mintues later, the winner came for Bagan through Bhaichung himself.
A long ball found Bhaichung and the Peerless keeper and Bhaichung gaining controll of the ball pushed it goal wards.
The Match ended 2-0 and Mohun Bagan win the 2007 CFL. Last time they had wonthis league in 2005.
