ATK Mohun Bagan huff and puff to victory
ATK Mohun Bagan defeated NorthEast United 2-1 to move up to the second place in ISL IX at the Salt Lake Stadium on Thursday.
Liston Colaco broke the deadlock in the 35th minute before Aaron Evans equalised in the 81st minute. Subhasish Bose, in his 99th ISL appearance, scored the winner in the 89th minute to give the Mariners a win in their 50th ISL game.
Five minutes past the half-hour mark, ATK Mohun Bagan breached the NorthEast defence. Hugo Boumous pounced on Parthib Gogoi’s misplaced pass and found Colaco with a perfectly weighted through ball. The winger aimed for the far post and finished it with aplomb.
Drama ensued in the final 10 minutes of the game. Jon Gaztanaga’s glancing header allowed Evans to score the equaliser with a diving header in the 81st minute.
