Mohammedan AC win by a solitary goal
Mohammedan AC made themselves somewhat comfortable in the Calcutta League Super Division Thursday when they beat Wari AC by a solitary goal.
Mohammeadn AC needed this win to make sure of their stay in the premier division and they did dominate the proceedings at the Mohun Bagan ground. Though the result was pretty much what the club needed to stay afloat, the domination was certain, as were the misses by Lionel and Bastab Roy in the first session. In the 55th minute Bastab made amends, sending the crucial pass from the left for Najim-ul Haq to shoot home from close. Rains followed, and the rest of the match was statutory.
