Henry nets Churchill's winner

Goa, November 9, 2012, Agencies:

Mumbai FC edge Sporting

Henry Antchouet came off the bench to score a late winner in Churchill Brothers’ 2-1 win over Salgaocar Sports Club in a fifth round clash of the I-League at the Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, on Friday.

In a closely-fought encounter, both teams had chances to walk away with full points but after the teams had scored their opening goals from penalties, it was substitute Henry who scored the all important goal two minutes from time.

Churchill Brothers opened their account with Brazilian striker Roberto Mendes da Silva scoring from the spot in the 22nd minute only for Sean Rooney to equalise for Salgaocar in the 44th, also through a penalty.

Churchill have 12 points from five matches, while Salgaocar have five from the same number of matches.

Amiri nets winner

Defender Haroon Fakruddin Amiri fired an 89th-minute winner with a sparkling turn in the box as Mumbai FC registered their first win of the season beating 10-men Sporting Clube de Goal 3-2 in an entertaining encounter at the Balewadi Sports Complex Stadium, Pune.

Mumbai FC had rallied well after being 0-2 down and just as the match seemed to end in a draw, Amiri came up with a blinder that surprised Sporting Clube goalkeeper Gerard D’Mello.

The win lifted Mumbai FC to 13th position, while Sporting Clube de Goa stayed at No 11.

ONGC hold Bagan

Star striker Odafa Okolie failed to make an impact as Mohun Bagan were held to a goalless draw by ONGC in a dull encounter in New Delhi.

Bagan now have seven points from five matches while ONGC have two from five matches.

Pune FC down Arrows

Pune FC returned to winning ways, by defeating a spirited Pailan Arrows 2-0 in Kolkata, that halted the AIFF developmental outfit’s unbeaten run. In a dominating display by the visitors, Karma Tsewang gave Pune FC the lead in the 11th minute while Subhas Singh completed the tally in the 47th.

The win came for Pune FC after two back-to-back losses against East Bengal and Churchill Brothers as they improved their position with nine points, while Pailan remained on eight points after five matches each.
