Chaos mars 'C' Div tie

A player from ECD FC was temporarily suspended after their opponents, Royals FC, staged a protest as high drama ensued here at the Bangalore Football Stadium on Saturday.

Pradeep, who had earlier represented Minerva in the BDFA ‘B’ Division League, has been registered to play for ECD FC in BDFA’s ‘C’ Division tournament.

Royals FC, who had come to know of this, protested and the officials upheld it and abandoned the match after 59 minutes.  The match, which will decide who will contest in the final against Young Challengers, will be replayed at the same venue at 8.00 am on Sunday.
The final is scheduled to begin at 3.00 pm.

Earlier on Saturday, Young Challengers held their nerve to edge past RS Sports 4-3 in a penalty shootout after the match ended 0-0 in regular time.
