Mapusa: Henri Antchouet scored two goals and created another as Churchill Brothers staged a splendid rally to edge out Pailan Arrows 3-1 in an I-League clash at the Duler Stadium, here, on Wednesday.
After a barren first half, Prathamesh Maulingkar gave Arrows a stunning lead in the 56th minute but within the next eight minutes, they crumbled in the face of some sustained onslaught from the opposition.
Gabonese striker Henri scored two goals in three minutes and then Israil Gurung added his name to the scoresheet as the hosts won the second match on the trot at Duler’s artificial turf.
The win helped Churchill take the sole lead with 31 points from 13 matches while Pailan Arrows were stuck to the eighth spot with 14 points from as many matches.
In Gangtok, United Sikkim conceded yet another last minute goal and Yusif Yakubu yet again turned out to be Mumbai FC’s saviour as the two teams split points after a 2-2 draw at Paljor Stadium. (agencies)
