Sporting down Bagan by a solitary goal!

Bagan after their winning run was stopped in their tracks by Sporting Clube de Goa who put in a late 85th minute goal to bury Bagan's hope to getting another 3 points from the match. It seemed the whole team was suffering from complacency and even though Bagan had an attacking 15 mins in both the Halves, let down the initiative as Sporting de Goa capitalised.
It was an evenly fought battle and though Bagan created more opporubities to score, Sporing Clube de Goa striker, Junior made sure he did not let his chance go by, when in the 85th minute, a ball was sent in the Bagan penalty box, and Sangram squadered the ariel ball which fell for Juniour, who just placed it in.
Team: Sangram Mukherjee, Habibur Rehman Mondal(Lalkamal Bhowmick), Peter Odafe, N.S. Manju, Mohanraj, James Singh, Bobo, Shanmugam Venkatesh (Lalampuia), Dharamjit Singh (Ishfaq Ahmed), Jose Ramirez Barreto, Baichung Bhutia
