Mumbai FC upset fancied JCT

Yadav set up the first goal for Mumbai FC with Bashiru Abbas finding the target in the 63rd minute and then converted a penalty in the 81st minute to round off the score.
The visitors, who dominated the first half, had none but themselves to blame for their loss as they squandered two easy opportunities in the early minutes of the match.

Kamaljeet Kumar saved the day for the hosts with a good clearance in the 12th minute when Mumbai FC custodian Lihaz Koya was fumbling with the ball during a JCT attack.
Soon after Koya failed to collect a Baljit Sahni’s shot from the right flank again, but fortunately Pawan Kumar’s strike went over the goalpost.

However, Mumbai FC were altogether a different side in the second half. A free kick off Noel Wilson was chested by Yadav and then passed towards Bashiru, who left-footed it into the net from inside the box.

Meanwhile, in an all Goan clash Churchill Brothers edged out Dempo 3-2. Churchill opened scoring through Odafa Onyeka Okolie in the eighth minute  before Dempo hit back through Ranti Martins’ brace (23rd, 32nd). However, late goals from Felix Chimaokwu and Odafa ensured victory for Churchill.
