Jr cricket from Monday

A junior cricket meet in memory of Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee will be held at Netaji Subhas Institute ground (Sealdah) and East Calcutta District Sports Federation ground (Beliaghata) from Monday to June 9.

Lal doubtful starter

East Bengal look circumspect in treating Wari AC when the two teams will clash in the final of CAB senior division League championship play-off final at Eden Gardens tomorrow.

On paper, last year’s runners-up East Bengal, start favourites but know their opponents are no easy meat either. Although Arun Lal is a doubtful starter, East Bengal’s batting line-up looks strong with the likes of Srikant Kalyani, Rohan Gavaskar and in-form Narendra Singh Negi. Sourashish Lahiri, who fashioned the team’s semi-final win against Calcutta Port Trust, will again have to rise to the occasion.

   

 
 
E. RAILWAY, BSF DRAW 
 
 
BY A STAFF REPORTER
 
Calcutta, April 26: 
Eastern Railway SA and BSF (South Bengal) played out an exciting draw in their BHA first division group A league clash at the Mohun Bagan ground today. The teams shared four goals and two points, the result helping both to stay in touch with frontrunners CESC.

While ERSA have 13 points from eight matches, BSF have 11 from a game less.

Aryan were still not in a position to field a team and stayed away for a third time in as many matches. CLW benefitted by picking up full points.

Khalsa Blues brightened chances of topping group B after overcoming Jagrihi 2-0. Jagdish Singh and Jagat Singh got into the goalscoring act.

Khalsa Blues, with one match to play, have so far dropped three points. Also in running for the top honours are BSF (North Bengal) and Punjab SC.

BSF (South bengal) got a quick goal in their match against ERSA, Mansukh Tete putting finishing touches to a well-crafted move down the right.

The railwaymen fought back well and finally got the equaliser two minutes from half-time. An inviting cross from the right eluded a well-placed Nisar Ahmed inside the dee, but Petrus Ekka was on hand to push the ball into the open goal.

Crossing over on level terms, Eastern Railway quickly got their nose in front. It came off a penalty corner and, for a change, the pushing and stopping were perfect. So was the hit, a direct one taken by Parvez Alam.

But it wasn’t long before BSF levelled scores. With the railway defence making a mess of a routine clearance, S. Lugun pounced on the confusion to drive the ball in.

The remaining minutes saw ERSA going into overdrive to regain the advantage. They almost succeeded, Ekka’s crafty scoop going a foot off target.

   

 
 
BENGAL WARY OF MANIPUR 
 
 
BY A STAFF REPORTER
 
Calcutta, April 26: 
Manipur stand in Bengal’s way to success in the women’s national football meet, starting in Ludhiana from May 10. Bengal coach Indrani Sarkar made no bones about this.

“Manipur is undoubtedly the biggest challenge for us in the meet. Our loss to them in the final last year still haunts us and this time again, they stand in our way,” she said.

Sarkar said the girls are being “specially trained to have a psychological upperhand” against the defending champions.

“We often choke against them and so we have a separate strategy against them this time round. Girls have been told to get psychologically stronger,” Sarkar said.
