Another CFL encounter, another day of dominance, another hat trick by ace striker, Muritala Ali and another 3 points earned. That could be a good way to summarize today’s match against Mohammedan AC as the Mariners won the match 3 -1.
Today was the fourth post-puja encounter for Mariners in Sahara CFL 2010 and the resilient Mariners displayed their sheer dominance to earn 3 valuable points beating Mohammedan AC 3 – 1 at their home ground. The deadly trio, ‘Berreto-Chidi-Muritala’, were in-charge right from the beginning of the match and it was Muritala’s day today as he found the net on 11th minute as he finished the movement spearheaded by Snehasis and Barreto (1 – 0). However, the initial lead didn’t sustain long as Saheed of Mohammedan AC took the advantage of defensive lapse and stunned the stadium with an equalizer on 18th minute (1 – 1). Since the resumption of post puja vacation encounters, Mariners defense were unbeaten till 288 minutes but a rare mistake from Karan Atwal might prove to be costly for the team on this occasion.
