Title for Bayview

Calcutta, June 7:It took 18 days of intense competition and 3888 glasses of fresh lime soda to determine the winners of The Telegraph-Haywards 5000 five-a-side Merchants’ Cup football tournament!

At the end of it all at CC&FC Saturday, the city’s most popular corporate sporting event — which attracted 60 teams this year — saw a new champion in Bayview Technology who emerged deserving 2-0 winners over VGP Portfolio in the Main Plate final.

Abhishek Deb opened scoring in the first half before Soumya Mukherjee added the second after the breather. It was a pretty one-sided affair between two fairly young sides.

Before that, Norinco had overcome Selvel 1-0 in a well-contested Losers’ Plate final. Sandeep Lahiri scored the winner in the first half. An identical scoreline separated Exide from J. Thomas in the Bowl Plate final with Joy Bose doing the needful.
