It was one way traffic at Siliguri where Mariners thrashed Uttar Banga-XI by 8-0 in an Exhibition match at the Siliguri Kanchanjangha Stadium. Sangram was there under the bars in the first half while Shilton was the custodian in the second half.
The 1st goal was scored by Barreto from penalty after Muritala was pulled down inside the box in the 15th minute. The supporters hope he will score many from penalty instead of missing the net in forthcoming season. Other scorers are Ishfaq (26th minute) , Muritala (33rd minute) , Ashim (34th minute), Snehasish (61st minute), Manish (66th minute), Satish (77th minute), and Souvik(89th minute). This was the last day of residential camp of Mohun Bagan.
